Full Biography

Living in New Zealand.  40-ish.  Owner of computer repair company directed at home, soho and small business users.  Been at this for 25 years.  First computer was a TRS-80, followed by an Apple ][e, followed by a Commodore Pet, a Vic20, an Osborne CP/M unit, a Zenith Z80 based unit, finally my first "IBM" PC with DOS 2.1 around '86.  And pretty much down hill since then, really :)  Got a 3 yr old son (the "CEO"), a wife (the "CFO") and a management coup on the way in the form of unborn baby #2 who will unseat the CEO who we will make Vice President of Asia Pacific or something to appease the pain.  Been on the internet since 1988.  Was gating usenet, email and fidonet on a hand-coded BBS written in straight C on a 386 running Xenix/386 and serving 4 lines.  At some stage, I bought one of the first 9600 baud modems for US$1000 :)  Ah, those were the days...  since then built, owned and sold an ISP (still a going concern), write web sites in PHP/mysql for medium to corporates including Honda, Vodafone and others.  I'm tired just writing this.  I'm off to have a nap :)
