- About Me
- Bought first PC from newly-opened PC World in Croydon in early 1990s: learned about MSdos by trial and error; used dial-up Newsgroups; upgraded components to try then-new Windows; and so on.
Upon retirement worked as a volunteer with Mid Hants Railway (steam); invited 1998 to create website; sole webmaster until retirement 2009 with over 10 million hits a month at peak.
Introduced to Linux at PC Users Group meeting in mid-2000s by speaker Desmond Armstrong, whom you know. Tried it but gave up when unable to use programs I preferred for html and graphics editing.
Had another go at using Ubuntu when web-editing was no longer a priority and now 100% Ubuntu 11.04 on my home-built PC.
