    And I'm an alcoholic...

    Oh, wait, wrong forum ;P

    I'm a long standing member here at Digiex. I found the site over 4 years ago while searching for a game or something through Google. However, over the last year or so I haven't been around as much as I used to be. This was mainly due to work and family commitments. My work load hasn't changed much, so from about 7AM Sydney time until after 6PM I won't be around much. But evenings? Well guaranteed I'll be perusing the forums more often now. Honestly, I probably wouldn't be back if it hadn't of been for an email from Nimrod.

    A bit about myself. I'm a 38 (OMG) y/o father of 3, all of whom love gaming in some form or another. I've recently separated from my wife of 13 1/2 years. I'm also American by birth, but live in Sydney, Australia.

    My son loves Minecraft PvP servers and pretty much any other game you can imagine as long as it involves playing with his mates. His twin sister is big in the Club Penguin/Moshi Monsters area, whereas my youngest daughter loves the Wii.

    I've been gaming since the late 70's when some of the first consoles came out, and I could reach the controls on the arcade machines. My first "online" game was playing against a mate of mine in Doom and Doom 2 over a null modem cable which later evolved to playing across a phone line.

    I work in IT as a Wintel and VMware specialist and team leader, and hope to reach a middle management role before the end of 2013. I've been working as a specialist in these areas for almost 7 years now and enjoy the freedom and flexibility that virtualisation provides.

    I'm also working on a few side projects of my own. I currently run my own forums at GameSafe • Index page. This site is dedicated to providing a safe, non-abusive gaming experience for female gamers, as well as young gamers. Morally, this site should be a big thing (IMO). I'm also in the process of teaching myself web programming so that I can develop a game server search engine that can flag servers that are safe.

    Well, I hope to see you all around more often, especially the older guys on here, and am looking forward to getting to know some of the newer guys.

    TTFN, Bonez

    PS, if you check out my site and have issues, please let me know via PM on Digiex, so that I can fix it. It is relatively new so I'm still learning, and I don't think it's 100% yet.

    Hey BonezOz, i remember you from years ago! Nice to see you back :)

    Has VM-Ware got anything to worry about with Hyper V do you think?

    Only thing i can suggest with your website is to use dark text on a lighter background, i find the text difficult to read on your website.
