March 1966 was a very trying time for me. After nine months in the safety and comfort of my mother’s womb, I was rudely pushed into a frankly disappointing world populated by an infinity of people apparently dedicated to giving me a hard time. In the decades since, things have settled down a little and I’m now just over a quarter of a century into a glorious and lucrative career in IT.
“Aaand … you’re back in the room.”
To be honest, I’ve created up this blog because I’m paying for it and because I need a release for my frustration at the fact that we in IT are still doing things as badly now as we were half a century ago. Will we never learn? Our history is not promising.
Anyway, as it says up there: about me. I like my wife, cats, music, PlayStation, pinball, cooking, gardening, sleeping and reading. For anyone who cares, I was born in Plymouth but grew up in the Birmingham/Black Country borderlands. This makes me multilingual. I now live “oop narth” somewhere (that’s another language added) and work as a Project Engineer for a world-class IT services and business consultancy company.
There – now I’m done. Send me a message via the form below if there’s something I should know about.
