Hi all,
My name is Ben and i'm obviously new here on geekzone. I dont work in a tech trade... I own a cafe. But as will ferrell said in kicking and screaming "coffee is the lifeblood that fuels the dreams of champions" So I guess in that way, im an indirect player in the tech industry.Laughing 

I've wasted more hours than I care to contemplate playing PC games in my life and have always had a gadget fetish. In the upcoming weeks I plan on buying a new HDTV, bluray player or ps3 and a laptop and this looks like the best place to get some advice on those purchases.

I'm also into tropical fish. And coffee. Beautiful, delicious coffee. haha.

Cafes are the champion of champions for IT people.  Can I ask what area your cafe is in?

Welcome to Geekzone!

I haven't drunk coffee since British Rail tried to poison me in the mid 70's...
