I Started this Blog in January of 2015 in order to share some computer hardware and software development skills and share any gained knowledge.

I first started many years of studying and close work with computer technology back in the 1980’s firstly studying with Acorn and Sinclair computers then working on IBM mid-range computers such as the system 38, IBM AS400 – all the way through to the I-series servers. later working with Dell servers systems, Sun Blade and Sparc systems using operating systems such as Unix/Sun Solaris and Windows desktop/server Versions.

I worked with Companies such as ( KPMG, CHASE, Italian Bank, Emi and Coca-cola ), mainly based in the South east of England but supporting national based networks through out the UK.

Most of this blog is dedicated to the current computer market such as the growth if ARM processor – development Boards like the ( Raspberry Pi, Cubieboards, I.T. project related systems etc …)

The aim of the blog is to bring together some long standing skills using today’s current technology, I want to share these skills and chat some about the history of computer Hardware and Software along with its future developments.

You will see I have selected some very affordable and easy to work with computer hardware, both current and up-to date. As time goes by I will add any new details about new models and upgraded versions along with reviewing these hardware systems.

This blog is also my personal note pad relating to projects and personal training in skill sets that I keep current and gain overtime, including exams taken and courses worked with.




I have been Learning the Violin now for about 5 years and loved every minute of doing so from the very first time I pulled a bow over a violins strings, I am not an advanced player just a lover of this instrument and its sound and how it can be played when in the hands.

For the last 5 years I have taken lesson with Patrick Rafter , Kilkenny and also Jacqueline Burke Verweij, Kilkenny.

This blog will develop as I will use it to both share what I am currently doing along with other areas that cross my mind.

I hope if you do find this blog it maybe of some use 🙂
