    I myself have fallen off the wagon - I think we all do, its very hard to stop completely when you first start but it does make a huge difference!

    Software Developer by day, Gadgeteer by night.
    In my spare time, I build high end audio, and tweak my vaping gear. (and chase after the kids etc.)
    Quit smoking in May. Vaping became a hobby, not just a way to get off cigarettes.

    We have a Windows application (VB) that is quite big, and I do some ASP as well. (C#)
    Then of course MS SQL in the backend.
    The system is a financial system used in the automotive industry. It is aimed at wholesalers, but it comes with a dealer portal as well.

    Very cool, I mainly do PHP. Nice to meet another coder..

    Anyway my name is Warren, I am the owner of http://www.ikonix.co.za/

    Got into Vaping about 5 months or so. Started with terrible green smokes, then went to eciggies and got a EVOD KIT.

    from then its been downhill. Own a Evic and now this SVD, been through 3 different tanks - protank1, vision eternity ( i broke it though ), vivi nova now the protank 2. Got two batteries, 3500mah panasonic and 2200mah samsung.

    I would love to get more advanced and know how to work re-buildables nicely and not break them like I did. I truly believe that's where the vaping goodness it at.

    Hi guys. I am a robotics software and hardware electronic technician.
    Been vaping since June 2011. Never had an analogue since. No desire whatsoever to do so after 38 years of 30 smelly ciggs per day. Sies.

    Well it started like this. My wife and I got really bad chest infections during the 2011 winter. Could not smoke as it made me cough so bad that I severed some muscles from my ribs. That was really painful. Got myself a Joy e-cigg with menthol and it tasted good and did not affect my cough spells. The cartos were not available so we bought Lavatubes and Vivi Nova tanks. Been vaping this since long time ago. Now ordered Innokins for us and waiting for delivery.

    Old Techikon s4. I would not recommend it as if anything goes wrong, you are the first to be called at midnight or 24/7 only to see that it is a mechanical prob and not yours.
    Bosses looking over your shoulder while you trying to find the fault on the computer and hurrying you on is draining.
    Tell your daughter to study something else. Not worth it as I started getting panic attacks due to lack of sleep and the pressure.
