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

Who says we can't get along? Tongue out

I remind students like yourself who are 'network curious', that schools are small businesses and the data (some of it is very sensitive information) needs to protected as such. And from that point-of-view, they usually say "that is fair enough".

Our Internet content filtering is done by WatchDog and students have a monthly data cap. It's not very often I have to blacklist web sites.

What's you all-time favourite pastime?

LOVE going to Waikato rugby games - 2 more to go. GO MOOLOO!!!!


What Job you in at the moment?

NZ Sign Language interpreter.


What would your dream job be?

I cant see how anyone can dream of a job? My dream life would be to be financially able to spend all my time studying, learning at uni. I crave the act of learning something new.

I think you mean one more to go.... Otago will shut Waikato down and well as usual Nick Evans will dominate. We will see Wellington in the final...

If only Auckland had a good first five then you could well be seeing Auckland in the final, and hopefully a repeat of the Auckland Otago pool game Tongue out.

Bring back Carlos Spencer anyone?

and the cheesiest question of them all, What would your dream job be?



Favourite pastime, well I like many things, including cleaning my car, keeping up to date with what is happening in the world, and of course Geekzone!! My favourite however would have to be simply talking to friends.

Currently I work for a New Zealand Telco (3 guesses which one Wink), but I am also studying full time completing a NZDIPBUS.

My dream job?? Well at this point I don’t really have a reply to that one, just looking to take up opportunities within the Telco I currently work for, and enjoy doing it.

PS my vote goes to the Austin Martin.

Otago has a very good first five.... but you aint getting him. We must avenge last years finals heartbreaker, after beating Canty twice in row that was crushing. So this year Waikato and Welly going down... Time to bring the cup home....

Every holidays we come back to school (after) and find that no staff can use the internet.. stupidity really they pay some insane amount to a third party to do the network stuff for them because the of NT left... People still think I'm his brother!

It seems like such a small world on this website.  It really blows me away sometimes.


I have coffee @ Astoria at least once a week.  A few good friends go there everyday...!

I used to work in the same mall Pepples does...  I now work on Hutt road at Car Stereo Company selling and installing car audio.  Im pleased i work in this industry over the IT world as its very light hearted.  Sadly doesnt move nearly as fast as IT.  (Bit Boring)  But I am trying to hit a whole new level of geek and building a fiberglass box for a 1700XP, 512DDR, AGP to put into my boot.   It really seems like a bottomless hole full of features.  Dont think i need to say what i can do with it on this site.... (Be trying my WiMax connection on the road soon)


Dream car....   Very leading question.  I own a Toyota Soarer / Lexus SC400 right now and seem to be stuck on it... Elec Seats, 4.0 V8 Quad Cam, Dig Dash, more toys most want....  All for $5,000.    Cant bet that for value.

As for the DB9....  I recon a few people have been watching Clarkson pushing it on topgear!!   My problem is that i work on all sorts of cars.  We have the "back to the future" car at work right now and I drove a V10 8.3L Dodge Ram Viper a few weeks ago.  But once you start pulling them apart you find there is no such thing as perfect...   Far from it.

Myself i will never be happy with just one car.  One for the weekend and the puffy seat one during the week.


(Good deals for anyone who brings up Geekzone @ my shop!)
