I manage and am webmaster for a number of web sites. I pride myself that these web sites only use DHTML and CSS.
In my early days I was a systems programmer - specifically a compiler writer and a co-auther of a book on the Prolog computer language.
I am a fan of the works of Gilbert and Sullivan both as a team and individually. Not being a principal singer I perform enthusiastically in the chorus of the amateur societies and sometimes character parts. I also have a repetoire of comic songs and monologues.
I also act in a technical role having been stage manager and set designer for various amateur productions, plus the design of posters and other promotional items.
I am also a member of Yew Tree Singers in Dukinfield Cheshire
I was chairman of Tameside Egypt Group and have written some articles for Ancient Egypt Magazine. I also give talks on Ancient Egypt to other societies and in various libraries.
