Hi all!

I'm a new member of the Geekzone community, having previously found many an answer to a troublesome technical puzzler in these pages.

My name is Andrew and I live in Ohope, just outside Whakatane.  I lived in Auckland for many years and have found living in a small town (not to mention right next to the beach) to be much more to my liking.

I used to work for an ISP (in the fault centre, no less) but I'm currently unemployed and looking for work in and around the Whakatane area.  I have a background in electronic/computer engineering and am currently studying business while I hunt for a job.

Outside of technology I enjoy almost all sports, with my main interests being swimming (I used to compete at nationals) and golf.  I also like to muck around on the guitar when I get the time.

See you in the forums!

- Andrew

tonyhughes: Goodluck with the job hunting, harder in a small town eh?

You're not wrong there.  I applied for techy job the other week in Whakatane, and was basically told that although my CV looked good, they just had too many people apply for it.  Apparently there's hundreds of people going for the few jobs that do turn up...

I'm starting to look at commuting to Tauranga or Rotorua.
