Hello All;

I'm not really a newbie I been coming to this site from internet searches on many occasions and today joined after 10 years of being behind a keyboard or at least it feels that way especially tonight.

I work nights as telecom as ats its best coding away for various clients. I am a php website developer and although my core development language is CFML, php is just simpler, more versatile and easier to get answers when your stuck. In fact i haven't written any Coldfusion code for months.

I have an extensive background in Software and Hardware and have worked for computer and software resellers in Auckland for over 6 years and now find myself working from home developing websites for lots of lovely people trying to make there millions on the web. If your one of these people i'd love to hear about your dreams and help you make it a reality.

I'm English, 42 years old and after living and working in the middle east for most of my life Scotland was just too cold, and came here for a holiday in 94 and never left. No I'm not an overstayer just a lover of the kiwi lifestyle and your temperate climate suits me just fine.

I'm so busy for others that my own website allthough in development isn't finished so no link available at this time.

Currently I'm working on large product databases helping people expand there catchment areas by Geo targetting & improving their there SEO and SEM. By helping them explore the world for new clients and new markets they are finding good prospects and kiwi businesses are selling into countries they didn't know there was a need. I'm good at this as i have a business background foremost with a killer "hunting" ability i developed in various sales roles. I became a Geek when a flatmate gave me an old 133 back in '98.  I've been hooked ever since.

Coding has become a way of life for me so yes I am a Fellow Geek.
