About Me

This is my first attempt at blogging, so you may need to be a bit patent with me.

I am an IT professional, working in IT for most of my Working career in one form or another, I currently work for a company in Oxfordshire, where I run the IT department.

My job has for a long time been technically "Hands off", although I do try to keep my own personal skills and technical knowledge up-to date by running my own network at home.

I also do crazy thinks like setting up a mail server, running this blog site and the occasional website development for close friends and family, on occasions I may even host their email and web sites for them, of course this allows me to keep technically aware, a useful part of my own career.

At home, I am pretty much a family man, I am married with one daughter aged 8 years old (at time of writing).

I have been married for 10 years and I am very happy, we are a typical family living in the south east of England, life is a struggle and we pay far too much tax etc.

About my blog

Although I am a great fan of the internet, I am also very aware that some of the people that use it are not as pleasant as we would all like, therefore you will notice in my blog that I will not publish any personal photo's or names of anyone related to me, therefore the only people who may recognise them will already be close friends.

Feel free to comment on my blogs, I will try to keep them as factual and humorous as possible.
