Hey, I've just landed a job in the Hobbit Movies. I'm working in the special effects department doing electrical and electronics work and will be helping run the motion bases in the near future. Definitely beats my old job as a photocopier tech!

You have a lady AND she makes you go out to the garage to play with yourself? that dosnt sound fun at all. At least in aussie your nuts will be warm.

Just starting back in Taupo as one of the engineers on the Nga Tamariki project.
Been back about 3 weeks now, still going through final design stages and pitching to the client Mighty River.
Cant wait to move out to site next year and get into it.

Gonna move down to taupo late feb next year and take the 1600 closer to the racetrack............

Anyone else from the taupo area?

Wait til you become a registered drain layer. They command a pretty impressive hourly rate.
They don't call me the man with the rubber arm for nothing you know.............

had been considering trying this sort of thing, you sell it so well. and I already have vast experience with the crappy safety rules and dumb hard hat too, bonus.

yeah there are a few datto fans here in Taupo. I'm a fitter and do quite a bit of geothermal maintenance work, sometimes for MRP. Might bump into you at some stage.
