..that I introduced myself. Although I used to do a little programming, my qualificatin for being here now is purely as a professional consumer of gadgets and toys!

With my partner I own a website development and hosting company and when not recovering from smashing my Harley we can be seen enjoying NZ's wide opens spaces on our 680lb beast. An idiot woman in a 4wd put paid to that for 12 months or so last October so have spent the intervening months either recovering in hospital, on my back at home, or here, checking out the latest in gadgetware (so I'm fully prepared when I can walk properly and without pain or crutches again).

In the meantime I trade on Trademe, am the archivist for an organisation initiated to keep them honest (scambusters) and try to maintain a healthy balance between net time and real time with the rest of my day.

Anyway, I've already talked too much so will leave you to enjoy the next intro.

Hey, Bruce. Welcome to the family!

Sorry to hear about your accident, but I guess that sort of thing makes you appreciate life more, as well as giving you an excuse to hang around Geekzone!

Hello Bruiser, and welcome to Geekzone (we met just before via e-mail)...

Hope you enjoy time spent here, and recovery better than you hope.
