Default Hi from Metallica

No, not the band. :laughing:

My real name is Pieter and I come from the Netherlands.
Being a PHP programmer I'm trying to learn VB.Net as well to enhance my skills.
I'm also a registry teacher at WhatTheTech and GeeksToGo. For my work in Consumer Security I have been rewarded with a Miscrosoft MVP award.

Using three computers and a few VM's ranging from Windows ME to Vista Ultimate, I can find my way on most of them.
Just don't ask me to take them apart. Hardware is not my thing.

Hope I can make some useful contributions here in the future.

Hey Metallica, welcome to the forums we are a frendly bunch over here at Tech Forums just like you guys over at GeekstoGo. We could always use a few more developers over here.
