Wannabe Geek

Though I'm more an ex-geek than a current one. I've recently stopped working in the IT sector after 20 years working in the UNIX world - mostly Solaris - in Wellington. Packed my family and household and moved north to Whangarei for a full change - career, lifestyle, the works. And I haven't regretted it one little bit.

Working in the IT world was good and I learnt lots over the years and made some good friends but the time comes when you've got to get out and try something different.

I figured joining this site would be a good idea as I don't have the easy access to technical Q & A that I had in Wellington. Though I know that help is only an email away sometimes its good to tap into the experience of a wider audience. And who knows, I may be able to dredge up some knowledge from my experiences too.

Seeing as I'm now a computer user as opposed to a support specialist I tend to use my computers for work and do other things for leisure such as cycling especially MTB'ing and follow my passion for motorsport.

See you on the forums.
