Please take a minute to introduce yourself...

How did you start writing/programming for the web?
What kind of web-related projects do you work on?
Do you have any other interests?

I started (learing) programming in 1965 (I think); I effectively "word-processed" my computer-science diploma dissertation in 1971, using a program called the Matthewman Paginator that ran on the Titan computer in Cambridge to output a tape for a flexowriter. Um I started my first website in 1999, and I am still on it, but a part (the jigsaw puzzle shop) has grown into a small business.

I do choral singing and play the piano. I do actually do jigsaw puzzles occasionally, too, but now I pretend it's work.
