What's this all about ?

Once upon a time, in a land far away, I learnt how to program an ICL 1301 using punched cards. This developed my interest in computers, and provided a modest income thereafter.

This site used to be my company website, but the company has retired - so its going to describe the software I write now, mostly freeware, and some projects using small computers.

My interests in photography, radio and electronics have developed over the years, but computers and programming still come first.

There is always room for a commercial project - if its interesting. My last one was a radio station which communicates with aircraft and sends telemetry to the operators computer centre. It involved finding a site, negotiating the rental with lawyers, putting up antennas, configuring comms equipment and getting the necessary radio licence.
