Learned the fundamentals of BASIC programming in 1978 from a 4 page magazine pull-out.

Since then I've coded in hex (6502, 8080, Z80, x86), Fortran, Pascal, C/C++, VB6, C# and recently started with Java programming for Android devices.

Over the years I've done most things from electronics design/development to furniture removals, factory work, fast food delivery and network systems administration.

One of these days I'll work out what I want to do when I grow up. :-)

comment What kind of lubrication should I use for a lock?
Whilst I agree in principle, my experience is that attempting to 'blow' graphite powder into a Yale lock with such a bottle results in more graphite powder outside of the lock than in. I'm quite happy with graphite, oil or WD40 but I always coat the key with whichever of them I'm using and gradually work it into a Yale lock to free it up.
