I like my phone …


My 1st phone 1980's Love them or loathe them, mobile phones have come a long way from the house brick of the 1970's to the razor thin, smartphones that we are now used to. I got my first phone in the mid 80's, and it was a BT phone on the Orange network. It was … Continue reading I like my phone …

From then to now … getting the hang of it


For the first few weeks, I felt a little out of place. All the team I was with, bar one had been office workers since leaving school and most of them had been with a Local Authority, so I was a bit of an oddity.

As a consequence, certain parts of the software failed. So who’s fault was that ? The software house for sending the wrong client build??
