I started off programming in BBC Basic and 6502 assembler. I got my first job programming in FORTRAN on VMS, and since then have picked up C, C++ and SQL on VMS and Unix, with excursions into VB and IBM 360 assembler.

I drink real ale, play wargames and contract bridge, and walk in the country.

And, yes, I have a beard.
