About Me

I have been involved in computing since my university days, when I learned Algol 60, through many languages, including assemblers, several Fortrans, PL/1, C and C++. When I started work, it was in mathematical modelling and problem-solving, but computing really got a hold of me when I moved into real-time control systems. Eventually, work in this area dried up and I developed point-of-sale retailing systems until my retirement.


I have covered all aspects of computer installations, from sales support and functional specification, through system analysis, technical specification, coding, technical and user documentation, designing test schedules and in-house testing, to on-site acceptance testing. I found this variety of work very fulfilling.


I now have a network of PCs and other devices doing particular tasks around the home. I use Linux when I can, and Windows when I must.
