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. 


18th March 2021: Updated the page for the 1983 Citroen BX 14RE.  Also made a couple of changes to the wording on the landing page and have updated the Favicon to something less cryptic - the old one was meant to be a stylised representation of a compact fluorescent lamp - though there's only so much you can do with a 16 pixel square!.

13th March 2021: New page added for the 1983 Citroen BX 14RE which has been added to the automotive fleet.  I've also rearranged the table on the cars page so they are listed chronologically by date of manufacture.  They were just listed by the order I'd written the page before and it was getting messy.  Similarly I'll be going through the lighting pages and rearranging things alphabetically where relevant...No idea why I didn't do that originally.

10th February 2021: New page added for the Prinztronic Mini 7 Calculator to the Vintage Technology Page.  For all it's a relatively inexpensive one from its period, has to be one of the nicest looking designs I've got in here I think.

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.
