Wink Time to say hello...

After being an observer for a while, it's time I said hello out here Ironwolf told me about the last meet, but I couldn't make it since I had plans for Srirangapatnam that weekend.

Anyway, my current ride is a 2003 Baleno (black) which I've enjoyed driving over the last 4 years - she serves as my work horse during the week but I take her out of town 1-2 weekends a month to feed my need for speed And finally planning to add some upgrades after spending a fortune on my PC over the last year.

What I do? Head up International business for a startup based out of the US. When I'm away from work I'm building/testing computers, taking my monster apart or jamming to Slayer, Testament, Arch Enemy, Satriani, DT, Whitesnake, and the like - yes, I've been hooked on to old school rock/metal (some jazz rock too) for as long as I've been playing guitar.

That's pretty much it, I guess... look forward to being part of the next meet.

Hey RiO welcome finally,

After all the links I sent, you joined the gang finally eh? I see your friend ROC has also welcomed you.

RiO was my boss in my earlier Org. RiO also doubles as a Comp Hardware advisor to many. If he mods his car as much as he mods his computer (Super fast and supercooled - Its Water cooled with coolant), it would be a much faster and much hotter looking Baleno.

Hope you are half as active on this forum, as on techenclave.

@ Ironwolf,
Couldnt agree more. His Systems have always been special. Top of the line Watercooling setup for his X6800 [Read: 40k Chip] and 8800GTX is droolmaal !
Hope to see his Baleno modded just the same way, just like wolf in sheep clothing kinda thing :P
