Hi Geekzoners, lurkers and trolls :p ,

 

 

 

I have been looking for a great NZ forum and stumbled over Geekzone while searching for some DIY advice for a deck. Awesome community you have here.

I am not from NZ nor do I reside in NZ, but I have been working for NZ as a Freelancer for the last 10 years as a designer and draftsman for timber framed homes.

 

I virtually live somewhere in Christchurch or Auckland spending a lot of time on Google Streetview looking at homes and sites. So if I may, I have lots of question for Kiwi's, specially around the building industry.

 

 

 

I also enjoy 3D printing with my Chinese Imported, Anet A8 . I named it Mr. Squeaky.  yell

 

I do some music recording now and then.

 

I just discovered how awesome Zoom Conference calling software is as an alternative to Skype. Wish I discovered it earlier. 

 

I don't have much time for playing games, but I am currently playing Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor when I get a gap (on PC!).

 

 

 

P.S. Are there other NZ designers, builder and architects around here? Maybe dedicated thread for technical questions regarding building standards etc.?I also don't mind giving my input and answer questions around the building standards and clauses and Mr. Squeaky.

 

 

 

Cheers

 

ZMF

Welcome to the madhouse





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Welcome ZMF.

 

Speak to the moderators about opening a dedicated forum for builders. The focus here is generally IT related. Hope you find some like minded people here.

I'll participate for a while and see where it goes. Have already read a couple of interesting posts in the DIY section.
