Introduction
Been on social media since pretty much day one, but really haven't got the scars to show for it. Old hack, who remembers punched cards, but undesrtands XML (mostly), so almost a technology historian. Proud Dad, Civil Servant, Happily Married and trying to keep a body in shape that seems to think that round is the ideal shape.
