Well I guess I had better introduce myself!  :lol:

Regarding my nick - originally I had wanted to use a different one but it was in use (although I no longer remember what that was) so I had to think of one at the spur of a moment. The JB007 part refers to James Bond 007 and the S is my initial (Steve). In the past I have been a malware fighter, originally trained at castlecops until its demise then I went to another known security forum to make it my home. I got drawn to LDZ by Corrine whom I have known in the forum for what I think must be around 5 years or more now.

I stopped malware fighting around 2 years back and instead I now play a part in a voluntary role with St John Ambulance as an Advanced First Aider providing medical cover at public events. I am also the events co-ordinator for our area which means it is up to me to keep an eye on events planning then find and allocate manpower to them.

In my spare time I work a 40 hour week as quality inspection at a forge/engineering company and any remaining hours left is spent with my family   :flowers:

Oh and I do have a good sense of humour :muahaha:

Thank you!

At least 5 years, Steve.  I was at CC back in those days too, although we may not have run into each other there.  (Every time you post at Sysnative, I think, to myself, "Who is that?  I know who it is." and then realize its you.  I doubt I'll ever get used to the name you use there.)

One thing you neglected to mention is that you have a very pretty daughter.

Hi Mike  :hallo:

I must admit Bedfordshire is one place I have never been, although I have passed through it via the M1 a few times!

@Corrine, thanks for your comments. It was a shame to see CC go. At the time, as well as my training there I was also very active on the SIRT team which was very interesting! I met some very fine and knowledgeable people there.

Thanks you. My daughter is the light of my life.

My real name is Pieter Arntz and I'm from the Netherlands.
I have worked and lived in Germany and the UK (both a little bit under a year) but mostly near Rotterdam.
My actual job is transport planner and security advisor for the transport of dangerous goods.
I now do that part time and work the other half for Malwarebytes.

I was trying to self educate me in programming and when I got stuck I asked a question on a Dutch forum. While waiting for an answer, I started answering other peoples questions. On that same forum I ran into TonyK who had already made a name for himself at Wilders and SpywareInfo. And I followed him there.
After a while they grew so tired of my questions that they made me an expert at SWI and an Administrator at Wilders.  :angel:

You left out one important thing about yourself, Pieter -- that you can be bribed with chocolate.  :lol:

My grandparents, on both sides, were imports from Thessaloniki.

'tis a beautiful place  :dance:  My family came to this country through New York circa 1910.  They wound up in Minneapolis on my mother's side and in Chicago, on my father's.

Well, I was born in Amsterdam (1940), parents migrated to Australia in 1951. I speak, read, write (a bit rusty) and understand the Dutch language.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Corrine, the happy dance icon, please!  Have you got a sirtaki dance icon too?  ;)
