This is my clean and wholesome blog. Social, techy, work, whatever – probably of interest to only a very, very small group of people - and possibly not even them. For my trenchant and sometimes funnier rantings you’ll need to search elsewhere…

First touched a computer in 1980 (Commodore PET), built extension cards for my ZX81. First used the Internet in 1986 sending email on a University VAX machine, (which, in those days, was a single machine shared by everyone on all the computing and engineering degree courses - you kids today…). Then a Senior Research Fellow in Human-Computer Interaction (before it called “UX”) helping to develop the Poplog AI development environment, first installed a webserver in 1990, taught myself HTML and perl CGI scripting.

Since 1997 a professional software engineer specialising in network security, unix/linux backend polyglot software, databases, storage, and all internet protocols. Now a software architect, engineering lead and manager. An informal interest in topology and the mathematics and behaviour of networks.

Been known to do a little Jive dancing.


Long, long ago; in the before-time
