I walked into a Dick Smith store (Porirua) today to check prices for a new LCD monitor and started playing with a PC connected to one of the monitors around there.

To my surprise, when I opened the browser and start entering www.geekz... it auto-completed with www.geekzone.co.nz. Someone else visited that store, and used that same PC to browse Geekzone.

Was that you?

We need small (1cm high?) "geekzone.co.nz" (and maybe a tagline) stickers to start spreading the word about GZ further in New Zealand (stick them on the bus stop, burger kings drink dispenser, mcdonalds drive through window (on the outside so other customers see it), at the pub above the urinal, etc etc)...

Or do something really crazy, outrageous and/or controversial, and get the attention of mainstream outdated media (TV & Radio News / 'Late night bytes' / 'Good morning') etc....
