MY WORK

I've been a computer engineer for over 30 years. I hold a degree in computer science and I'm also a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE). I've worked in the I.T. industry since 1982. My career started as a software aprentice whilst Microsoft was still inventing Windows (!). MS-DOS was still being developed and ported to new hardware. I remember well the old green-screen days of CP/M and MP/M operating systems running on a single z80 CPU with an S100 passive bus...do you?

When I'm not playing radio I now run a Computer Support Centre in Southwell, near Newark, Nottinghamshire www.southwellcomputercentre.com

 

IMAGES OF NORTH EAST NOTTINGHAMSHIRE

*** click the images for more information about the historic places shown ***

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 you must visit Southwell Minster.

Below is a very frosty morning over the River Trent. 'The River' is one of the largest in England. It's a mile South East from my QTH. The River first rises in the Staffordshire hills to the West before it snakes its way East through Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, finally joining with the River Ouse to become the Humber Estuary near Hull. It then runs 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 to the left of the tower). 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.
