Torque:
bradstewart: I wouldnt say no to an Aston Martin DB9


Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing.

Also, with quite a few people from the Wellington region, perhaps we could organise an informal meet somewhere?


What you didn't hear about Geekzone06 ?

Ah, but JAMMAN, he did say informal and I'm pretty sure GZ06 would could as formal, well as formal as geeks get in a large group.

Oh and Adam, I do try :)

My door is always open too. From Astoria in Wellington (where Mauricio goes), simply drive to the motorway, head north to Napier, turn left at Kennedy Road, drive into town, take a left onto Station and immediate right onto Dickens.

My office is in between the church and the sex-shop, although I think officially we are meant to say "over the road from Mitre 10".

Upstairs, and second door on right.

Actually - come to think of it, the door is not always open. Its sometimes closed. Especially when myself or my cell-mate are on the phone.

Best ring first.

Pastime: Blowing the cobwebs out of the home theatre gear. Forcibly. (not that the spiders have time to create any)

Current: Self employed. Playing with computers and things with wires and cables and speakers etc

Dream job: Blowing the cobwebs out of home theatre gear and getting paid for it?

All of a sudden Aston Martin seems too common. I'll take one of these thanks.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Ah, Centaurianz, we could have gotten along fine if it wasn't for the fact your profession is the most annoying thing! I'm always having to find new ways of getting around my schools security systems, luckily ours are pretty slack except for chat as my school is full of clueless n00bs
