    Talking Kiwi Greetings!

    Hi Everyone,

    Just found this place and it looks great - Android noobs, lurkers, l33ts and ... well that guy over there

    I'm Graeme (aka Green Guppy) and I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I'm married with 2 boys (11 and 13) and a cat. We were here during the 7.1 quake in 2010 and subsequent 3 years of aftershocks - scary time but an amazing life experience. All good now - just had my house fixed up finally.

    I've got an Acer Iconia A500 and a Vigo 7" tablet. Samsung cheapie phone - my boys have better Samsung's than me. My wife has some fruity phone thing.

    I was a Chemical Engineer/Plant Manager until my brain had a meltdown and I had to have a lie down and a cup of tea for quite a while. Needed something to do and been around computers forever so decided to give this Android/Java thing a crack. Just released my first very amateur game - but I'll post that in the lounge cos this forum ain't for that stuff.

    Anyhow nice to be here - party on!

    Cool - whereabouts are you? We are in Strowan. Your family and friends got through the quakes OK? We move back home on Saturday - 3 months out with repairs. Still a great place to live!

    I am in Hornby! And was out for 5 weeks. I can not imagine living in another city but maybe the US North Carolina or something.

    Hey Zocster

    Nice photo. We just moved back home in the weekend - place was a mess, carpet not in, mud all over the paths/driveway, bathroom not finished (lucky we have a small en suite in one of the bedrooms - but man it is good to be home. Don't know anything about Nth Carolina but Seattle interests me - grunge FTW! Maybe I'll visit here some day - won't be paid for by my game sales - v slow start but at least the trend is upwards.

    Take care and have fun

    Hi Stargate,

    Not originally from Nth Carolina eh? Did you by any chance gate in - hmmmm?

    Been googling NC - largest city is named Charlotte! She must have been hot to get a not only a city named after her but also the biggest one. I like that your state beverage is milk - party on NC!

    Cheers
