|Me with Penny (Penny is the cat, I'm the human)
Photo taken in December 2008
I was born on Friday 13th January 1961. Yes, Friday 13th!!
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
I strongly suspect I that I actually had it for as long as 15 to 20 years before I was diagnosed which I think may partly explain some of the other problems I have had including depression, low self esteem, shyness, social phobia, Asperger syndrome (officially diagnosed in October 2010), and my somewhat obsessive love/hate relationship with my gadgets and computers.

Occupation (before COVID-19):
Well, I was a sort of struggling freelance computer programmer and electronics designer.
"So-so electronic and microprocessor designs at a so-so price"
I'm not doing much except voluntary work now though.
As a volunteer I am webmaster for Compass Recovery College,
help look after the computers in a computer room for the patients at Prospect Park Hospital
and at the Earley Crescent Resource Centre I help look after computers that are used for teaching and for public use.
