Hi everyone, my name is Gary and I live on the Isle of Wight southern UK. I have been programming since I played with a commodore PET (8K RAM - green screen) way back in 1979. Since then I have progressed through 380Z, ZX80, ZX81, ZX Spectrum (even programmed that bugger in binary!), Amiga, and finally onto pcs.
Self taught VB3, 4, 5, 6, VS 2003, 2005, 2008. Classic asp, asp.net, C#, VB .NET, PHP, etc.
I have written software for the British MoD, the US DoD, in VB, and Navision. I have made several websites in both classic asp and asp.net. I got fed up with people wanting websites, but not knowing what they want from them, and also not wanting to pay the going rates, so I have quit doing them. Now I just go round and fix peoples computers as I can't stand the hassle of commercial programming. I still program for myself - have written several amateur radio programs, and am working on a monopoly game with a colleague in C#.
So there you are folks, me in a nutshell.
