Hi srose9 - I'm female but not working in the industry - my job is unpaid, looking after our home systems and keeping an eye on our youth sailing trust's website.

WELCOME!!!

These guys are great!

Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

You'd be surprised. I think there are lots of women around here on Geekzone, but not all them tell people about their gender. Like in gaming - that other player beating you is more likely to be a girl than you think...

My screen name is from the days when I didn't let on I was female online ;)

I figured I'd been online enough to finally put my pic on my profile a while back :)

I'm certain there are many more undercover women online... most discovered early to keep that under wraps when they were talked down to or hit on. I must say things have been improving in the last few years (I've never had those sort of issues here)
