Hi there Geekzone

 

 

 

I'm sJBs, 

 

 

 

I have recently immigrated from South Africa and was looking to join forum and community similar to carbonite.co.za.

 

 

 

I was recommended Geekzone, but it seems like the registration page contains a hidden key.  After consistent errors over the last number of months, I finally succeeded (not sure how though)  to tick the invisible Captcha.

 

 

 

Anycase, now I'm here.

 

 

 

Something more from myself:

 

I'm an engineer by trade and have a keen interest in technology, renewables, finance, open-source, cryptography, AI, mountain biking, hiking and gadgets in general.  I'm based in Napier in the beautiful Hawke's Bay, I have brought over quite a bit of tech, but will have to wait till I've finally purchased property before setting it up, sell off or upgrade.  So, I will become more active in the next couple of months.

 

 

 

Looking forward to learn from the community and hopefully be able to contribute to make the world a better place for all TM

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.

Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Welcome. I'm sure @freitasm can comment, but the signup could be something blocked by an adblocker?
