Default Hello from Vanuatu

Yes, the tiny archipelago in the South Pacific, Vanuatu

My name is Yorick and I've owned my Dell XPS 17 L702X since early 2011. 5yrs later this beast still does the job, but I am steadily building up a hunger for a new gaming laptop, which I hope will happen this year or the next. I have my eyes set on an ASUS ROG unit or an Alienware 17. I have a budget I'll try and remain within which will significantly impact on the choice of model...

More about me, well... I was born in Vanuatu, majored in Hospitality & Tourism, and currently a managing one of Vanuatu's 3* resorts. Happy where I am although we have limited availability of hardware, software and bandwith here in the islands. Spear-fisherman in my spare time (look for yoricknicholls on youtube) and I do enjoy the occasional bout of coop multiplayer gaming. Currently adoring Elite Dangerous, when I have friends to fly with, or time for that matter.

Thank you for reading. I'm off to seek help with my bluetooth speaker now

Is that a GoPro speargun? Or did you put a sticker on it?
I though spearfishing was using a spear to throw at fish?

I wear a GoPro with a headstrap whenever I hunt. I find I get better footage than having it rigged to a speargun. Besides I don't want to ruin my nice wooden artillery with drilling or mounts, etc...
