exeter_sw_mapI was born kicking and screaming in 1971, and that hasn’t changed much in the intervening 40+ years. Growing up is overrated.

I was born and inbred in Exeter with a comedy Devonian accent.

I have a short attention span, no patience and I get bored very easily and that applies equally to monotonous tasks or dull people.

I’m not what you would call a “people person”, in fact I prefer to keep people as far as possible from me. You’d have thought social media would be a great thing for someone with my avoidant personality defects, but I loathe that as much as face to face. But at least I can have friends 3,000 miles away and just not load up Facebook.

I suffer from manic depression and chronic anxiety issues, so I’m either incredibly happy and productive or lethargic and miserable. I also suffer from avoidant personality disorder, yes I do sounds like a wonderful person to be around.

I’ve no education whatsoever. I failed all my high school exams, and fucked up college finals apart from my 99% score in microsystems which told me to give up trying to be an engineer, and stick to being a geek.

Time to blow my own trumpet, mostly as no other fucker will do it for me, but I’m a damn good developer and I should hope so as I’ve been programming computers since I first got a ZX Spectrum back in 1983. Games bore the tits off me, so I got into programming, both at high and low-level.

Today that’s all gone to shit as I’m web developer and server administrator, mostly using WordPress writing themes and plugins for corporate web sites.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading about history and science, playing Armored Warfare in a clan, Angels of Death, and occasionally I dabble with programming for shits and giggles.

Busy, busy.

I’ve long since stop giving a flying fuck what people think of me, so bearing that in mind, if you want to message me, feel free.
