MY WORK

I'm a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and have been in the computer industry since 1982 (that's pre-Windows and even pre-DOS operating systems to you). I remember well the green-screen days of CP/M and MP/M on z80 CPU with an S100 bus...do you?

These days when I'm not playing radio I run my own computer service / repair centre in Nottinghamshire. See www.minstercomputers.com or www.southwellcomputercentre.com

IMAGES OF NORTH EAST NOTTINGHAMSHIRE

*** Please click the images for more information about these historic places ***

Below is Southwell Minster. This is just 3 miles north of my QTH. 'The Minster' is the Cathedral and Diocese of Nottinghamshire. It was build in 1884, and is open to the public daily. If you are ever in the East Mindlands at any time you must make a visit.

Below is a very frosty morning over the Mighty River Trent. 'The River' is one of the largest in England. It is 1 mile South East from my QTH. The River rises in the Staffordshire hills to the West and snakes its way East through Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire before joining the Humber Estuary near Hull, which carries it out to the North Sea near Grimsby on the East coast.

Below is the Priory Church of St. Peter. our local parish church in Thurgarton Village. This church is 250 metres from my QTH (I'm just behind the trees left of the church). The original monastery stood here from around 1119. the current church was rebuilt on the same site around 1853.

Below is what remains of Newark Castle, about 7 miles North East of my QTH. The castle is thought to date back to around 1135 it was built under a grant from King Henry 1st to the Bishop of Lincoln.
