Hi all.

I never considerred myself a Geek - -but, since my current work involves sitting infront of a computer 9 hours a day - and then coming home to our family 6-PC network, mine are running Linux, this one Mandrake 10.0, my other one (KVM-switched) dual-boots XP-Pro and Ubuntu 6.06 . .

. .Well, I suppose some may think I'm "slightly Geeky.

Computers have been a small-time hobby of mine since around 1995, when I bought my first S/H 486.

My other interests include Motorcycles, riding, racing and restoring.

Love a few Wines - Red And White, depends on weather and mood.

That's enough for now.

I want to go and post my current screenshot.

Cheers.

Hehe Welcome to GZ.

I'm not far from joining your 6-packs. :-D

Got 4 actives PC/Laptop, 1 inactive and 1 getting fixed. And most probably another grunty machine for home server and possibly (planned) ReadyNAS for storage, and a couple of Pocket PC and a smartphone with WLAN/Router to TCL.

hmm.... i think i'm revealing more than i should! LOL

Internet is my backyard...
