So it would seem that you have stumbled across my little corner of the internet. 

Here you will find diaries documenting my running a fleet of classic cars, information on lighting technology through the years, and pages documenting some items from my collection of vintage technology and computing.  Each of these areas has its own section linked to from the frame to the left of this page (if the frame is missing because you've arrived here from an external link click here to reload the whole page).

I welcome constructive feedback on everything here, whether positive or not, or just random queries about pretty much anything, and very much enjoy hearing people thoughts on the site.  So if you want, drop me a line, response times to email do vary, but I do attempt to respond to every one I get regarding this website. 


25th November 2022: Added a section on my links page for photography services reflecting the two suppliers I use regularly these days.

24th November 2022: Added the page for the 1978 Vauxhall Cavalier to the automotive section.  This will be updated in due course as the restoration of the vehicle progresses.

1st November 2022: Following feedback from some users stating that they found the white on black text hard to read I have changed the background from a deep black to a more unobtrusive pattern in a dark grey colour.  Hopefully folks will find this helps.

I have (finally) nearly finished putting together the page for the Invacar - this has taken forever as it's by far the longest and most involved one I have ever put together for the Automotive section.

In addition to the main page for the Invacar I have also put together a shorter FAQ page to address some of the questions, misunderstandings and dodgy facts that are in common circulation about these cars.  That FAQ is now live.  A placeholder has also appeared for the recently bought 1978 Vauxhall Cavalier.

I participate in a number of distributed computing projects through the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) platform.  My current credit count for the projects I am (or have been) involved in is listed below.
