Personal information

Old in enough to remember 8 bit micros, I wrote my first programmes in at high school in BASIC (yeuch) to be loaded on to a remote mainframe
using punched tape.
After taking a degree in Physics, I got into programming, at first sadly writing in BASIC again, and then building up a career in C/C++/Unix/SQL development with a fair bit of shell script on the side.
Lately I have retrained in the LAMP stack.

I like reading, drinking, eating ,being sacrcastic, playing the guitar, cooking, listening to music, new places, old friends...
