My Photo



I'm a 38 year old overweight professional computer programmer, and have been for 24 years (overweight programmer, that is -- I haven't been 38 for 24 years).

I specialise in C++ and prefer the *nix world, but I can generally deal with whatever needs to be done as long as the suck factor isn't too big.

I'm very happily married to Lisa and have one beautiful nightmare of a child named Adelaide.

Where am I? S 37.04950, E 143.71064.


I've been a fan of Formula 1 racing for a long, long time. I've worked hard at my fitness for a while now, first by running stupid distances every week, but right now I'm seriously into road cycling. Movies? Anything by the Coen Brothers or Pixar. Music? Not a big music lover, but when pressed: Midnight Oil, early U2, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and of course The Scabby Quartet.
