am a Motorhome enthusiast, amongst other things, and retired.
[The wife & I] live in South Wales, a country west of, and part
of the United Kingdom.
working career produced many years of experience in Computers,
Electronics, Mechanics, etc., The Computer knowledge was forced
on me in the last 10 years of my employment, I'm glad to say. So now
I build and service computers as a hobby, as well as maintain and run
this Web site is a new experience for me, but I recall in the old
days writing programmes in BASIC, for the original Amstrad, Acorn,
& Sinclair computers. While HTML is not quite the same, old
skills are being used on this production.

the period of my working life, I was a British Railway Steam engine
fireman, 2 years in the British Army as a National Serviceman,
with the Royal Engineers, 10 years a Press Tool setting mechanic,
with the Metal Box Co. where I learned my engineering skills in their
excellent training facilities. During this period I maintained my own
car, having rebuilt the engine three times during the 12 years
ownership of a 1958 Ford Anglia. 40 years ago we didn't change our
cars so often, they weren't so reliable and it was expected we would
develop maintenance skills on a car. These skills are now very handy
in reducing garage costs and the satisfaction of knowing the job is done!
also spent 26 years working for a well known American Electronics
manufacturer, repairing and installing mobile radio communication
equipment, including the new GSM mobile radiophone system in the UK.
Ending up on computer maintenance of Servers.
