Born: Apparently so, eons ago, ... and raised by a company of wolves - oh no, that was Eddie Izzard when his name was Grrr :D
History: Chequered
Likes: Listening to (most kinds of) music, (Self-evidently) The Goons, Playing the drums (what therapy!!) and (needless to say) *NIX, perl & beer
Dislikes: Lager, Windoze, hip-hop, garage, modern day R'n'B (if only they knew) i.e. most of the s#!te passed around today as music
Things I'd like to know more about: perl, OO, design patterns, The PM, life, the universe and everything else
