My name is Nigel and Live in CHCH, been on the web for years and didn't know this site existed.

I currently work at Lincoln Uni as a Science technician, building and setting up experimental equipment for projects. (mostly for the agriculture industry)

Worn many workhats over the years, Engineer(Sheetmetal) by trade, A few years as an Aircraft engineer(Qantas) and a Local firm in CHCH, a few years Audio engineering(recording) in the UK.

I have been mucking around with PC's for nearly ten years now and in recent years got into home theatre. This replaced my old hobby of racing motorbikes(125cc GP bikes) around the curcuits of NZ.

Been running a sideline business trading as "Masterpiece Calibration Ltd", which is about video calibration, plasmas, LCDs hometheatres and PC's. Image science foundation acredited(ISF).


P.S. Smokey the kitty says hi too <^..^>

Masterpiece Calibration Ltd, isf certified
