Secondly, a note about my account name: it has absolutely nothing to do with the recent connotations that the term 'to cyber with someone' has acquired. Okay... glad we cleared that up. Also, you get bonus points if you actually know the etymology of 'cyber' -sure, go Google it if you like... you'll probably be surprised.
Now some other mildly interesting stuff about me...
Born in Nottingham and eventually moved back here after living in Leeds, London and also in Harlow which, quite frankly, I'd rather forget about.
I once hitchhiked to Tunisia almost entirely by accident (long story - was aiming at Paris and missed... got there on the way back).
Used to work in a juggling shop and in a photography studio before I figured out my natural affinity for programming. Now I write engine control software for a major aerospace company. My apologies if you have suddenly developed an inherent fear of flight.
I also used to help run a cabaret / alternative comedy venue. I appreciate people being funny on my behalf because I'm terminally lazy and it's easier to laugh at someone else being funny on stage than to think up my own jokes. Whilst running the cabaret we had an unknown comedian called Lee Evans on. I think we paid him £50. Currently Tim Minchin is rocking my comedy boat. Al Murray and Dara OBriain are also great live. Oh yes, the late great Bill Hicks is still funny after all this time (although his material has dated somewhat ...hard to believe it's been 20 years).
Anyway, this is a work in progress... just like me. I hate writing these things, but then I think most people do... except for those lucky extrovert types of course.
One more thing - I'm not currently an A-Lister so I can't see if you 'Like' me - just drop me a message if you do - I'm not that scary am I?
