I've been programming computers since about 1968. I started at school with Algol 60 on an Elliott 803. From there I progressed through the Z80 and other microprocessors to the PC, DOS and Windows, Pascal, C and C++.

My other interests include astronomy and classical music. All of my contributions to Code Project have arisen from programs I've written in these areas.
