Hi Guys,


I just registered here....and I may will have some questions soon 😆


Although I try to support as well where and if I can.


My name is Pascal, 38 years old and moved two years ago from Germany......and came to stay. 😎
I am currently based in the tron on the beautiful North Island. Please no discussion about the tron ðŸĪĢ

I studied mechanical engineering and economics and have some concepts&prototyping background as well as in 3D design.


Due to English is not my first language I kindly ask you to understand my errors in spelling, grammar as a personal note of the author. I do my very best to improve.... ðŸĪŠ

Welcome to Geekzone!

I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be more productive.

There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our Geekzone Guide.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Welcome to the madhouse.

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