I have always been a gadget nut. Owning just about any gadget you could think of.....I have always enjoyed learning about them, keeping up with technology and solving technological issues for all around me. I don't keep my gadgets very long and they are always in excellent condition, so my family and friends benefit on my "leftovers" which gives me the perfect incentive to move on to the next great device!
I have worked for Borland International and Microsoft Corp. I left Microsoft and started my own technology consulting firm in the late 90s. I enjoy helping people overcome their fear of technology, setting up their computer systems and gadgets and training/troubleshooting with them.
I have been glued to technology for as long as it has been possible. For me, the BB has been a wonderful world. OK, yes....I admit it.....I am addicted.....however, I can't think of a better addiction
Welcome to Crackberry! I believe in this site and find it a perfect mix of professionalism and fun!Best regards,
Mara "Dear Berry" - advice for those addicted, trying to settle a dispute or wondering!

Hi, My names John and I'm a Blackberry Addict
I’ve been working in IT for the last 20+ years. Doing everything from full blown penetration tests on the wireless and wired side to basic network administration, including BES Administration. I’ve worked in the manufacturing, ISP+web hosting, .gov, and the pr0n (adult) industries. I have a full time IT job as a Systems Administrator at a large consulting/software development company, thankfully I’m the in house Sys Admin since client consulting got old with all the traveling and being away from my family. I have 2 wonderful kids, our son is the oldest and our daughter is the youngest, my wife who is a nurse and I have been married to her since 1996.
I have been a member of this site since it's launch. I also run Welcome to Dataoutages.com which is a site dedicated to data outages either from RIM or on the carrier side that affects people's Blackberry's.
I'm also a super moderator at NetStumbler.org WiFi Forums where you can find me handing down the heavy hand of the law against people that want to be spoonfed answers.

***EDIT: Resigned as a Moderator on 8/10/07, Thanks for all your hard work getting the site going Tmag!!!***
Well, I guess I should add my info.
Have been on the site since the launch really. I came across the site having seen an advert and thought "great another site to feed the addiction". Only this time the addiction was greater and I felt I was spending more time at Crackberry.com than anywhere else. The rest is history and I find myself on the MOD team here, amongst the esteemed colleagues.
My background in mobiles is none another than a techno geek, and loved having the latest phone, until the Blackberry. Since that time nearly two years ago, I have had pretty much every BB except the 8800, but that will come.
Aside of that I spent many years as a Sports Photographer covering everything from Cycling to Olympics in some way or another. Now however since the birth of my daughter, I have been firmly rooted in Recruitment. I enjoy talking to people and so therefore I guess this site allows me that too. I still do photography as a Freelancer as I do miss taking pictures, but not the travelling.
I am a keen cyclist and for Charity am riding London - Paris from Tommy's Charity in August 07 (3 days x 85 miles) - See Link Below
I hope you all enjoy the site as much as the creators and also the other MODs. We have a great site here, and here's looking forward to better, bigger and brighter things.
(Pic is from the more exciting days - you don't get that in Recruitment!)

Hi, my name is Trevor. I am a student and fellow crackberry user. I joined CrackBerry.com back in February shortly after it launched. Now I am going to help moderate the forums. I am a member on HowardForums & BlackBerry Forums as well. You can look for me there under the name trevor1189. I am willing to help answer questions which fall under my realm of BB knowledge and I look forward to helping out. I hope to see you all active in the forums!
As of today I have retired as forum moderator. I am leaving for college shortly and just won't have the time anymore. I will definitely be around CrackBerry still, but I don't have the time to moderate my fair share anymore and want to give someone else the chance to step up in the future when CrackBerry needs more help.
Maybe when things calm down a little bit I will come back. ;-)
Thanks everyone for making CrackBerry such a great site and best wishes!

My friends call me CC. Not chocolate-chip cookie or credit card, but plain "CC". Though there is nothing flat about being a CC.
My BlackBerry addiction all started when a friend of mine gave me $500 for my birthday. At that time, I was sporting the Sony Clie UX50 and Sony Ericsson to access my emails, navigate my way around the City of LA and watch videos. Been eyeing the BlackBerry 7520 for awhile then, because I was just curious as to why so many people were using them. So when the opportunity finally arrived for me to own one, I just jumped right in and never looked back.
Now, being a part of the CrackBerry Team, completes my passion for the BlackBerry(s).
