Had a bit of a meh turn out to the last Geekzone function - did we want to do another one towards the end of this month/beginning of April?

Sounds like a plan. I seem to manage scheduling being sick for a few days ahead of them for some reason tho.

We need to bring back Pizza nights with sponsors and prizes and beers and all the important things like free beer and free food and free prizes :-)

 

Also they need to not be in Auckland :-)

My company may potentially be willing to throw a little something at it to perhaps include a round of drinks or something :)

I thought this topic was soul searching about the function of Geekzone.

 

+1 for clearer topic titles.

I do miss the events a bit as it was a great way to network with people and get out of the house. I'd been keen even if I had to travel up to Auckland for a bit.

Sounds good :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

I'm quite introverted but may be convinced. Sounds like it could be a good time.

Taubin: I'm quite introverted but may be convinced. Sounds like it could be a good time. 

 

I've been interested to attend one but missed the last two for varying reasons.  I did idly wonder one day whether a GZ IRL meeting might just be a bunch of 'classic nerdy-looking guys nervously standing around not talking to each other'!  Of course there is zero chance of that being the reality....  someone would just need to pull out a new gadget and the room would erupt!  haha

 

For varying reasons (mostly buying/selling/trading bits) I've met half a dozen GZers over the last couple of years, and I'd be more than happy to spend more time with any of them.  Great bunch of guys in my experience so far, and generally more than willing to help.

i'm sure those who have met me at geekzone IRLs will indicate i'm extremely introverted.

 

 

 

i quite enjoy attending however, certainly build some good connections!

On a more serious note, I'd like to have a pizza night in Wellington. I scouted a place other day and was disappointed with service. Not many large pizza places in Wellington anymore, like the old One Red Dog used to be. Any suggestions welcome.

If its the weekend of Adele in Akl later this month I might be able to make it from New Plymouth, I have to drive the wife\ sister in law up and babysit while they go.  Seems like I'm already earning brownie points.

Heaven on Cuba St does nice pizza.  Medium sized place.   I'm on a diet so haven't been in there for about 6 months but used top be a favourite of mine.
