I have several vices that I won't describe on this page, but they all seem to derive from gregariousness. I also love what I do for a living, which is why writing about it is not a chore. But I also like to read about and pontificate on matters not to do with computing. I'm intererested in everything -- with the exception of competitive sports of all kinds, which always seem both pointless and tedious. Oh, and give me a radio rather than a TV any day. After years of erosion of our basic democratic rights, Radio 3 must by now be the only good reason for living in Britain.

I have practised Chinese martial arts (intermittently) for the last 27 years and still enjoy that greatly. Styles (if you're interested) included, in roughly chronological order: Wu Shu Kwan, Sam'Tu Dang, Wu Tan Tai Chi Quan, Pak Mei, Shaolin, Wing Chun, Yang Tai Chi Quan.

For the last year I've been fanatically beating the Bodhran (spoons and bones too) and, less successfully, renewing my acquaintance with the tin whistle and the washboard. This gives me a good excuse to indulge in one of those vices that I didn't mention. So if you like 'diddley-diddely music', come and hear us play most Sundays at The Lark in the Park, Copenhagen Street, London N1 (2pm start).

I like cooking too, and playing Mornington Crescent (especially with people that don't know the rules). Of course, in the Patterns movement we play Composite!

Best of all I like learning about something new!
