I am a long time professional in Information Technology. I have been in the business since the late 1970’s when I worked on IBM mainframes. I switched to working with Intel technologies initially with DOS and Windows, eventually becoming a Microsft MVP in Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory technologies. I have spent recent years specialising in Systems Administration on Linux systems (and I’ve dabbled in other Unix type technologies in the past).

I’ve recently restarted working which is enjoyable but I’d rather be admiring my wonderful grand-children. I live in Wellington, New Zealand. There is a saying “You can’t beat Wellington on a good day”. It’s not too bad on a bad day either.

Update : I’ve now been retired for several years and I’m loving it. One of the things that I am spending time on is writing stories. I’ve got quite a few on this site here. Please visit the link and see if there is anything there that interests you. Each story comes in three formats. Firstly a Open Office/Libre Office document, secondly a PDF, and lastly a Microsoft Word document.
