Free-lance Programmer (pre Sept 1985)

As a teenager I was commissioned to produce several software packages covering accounts, CAD, database management and payroll. This was at the time that home computers had just appeared (BBC micro, C-64, Vic-20, Mini, Mainframe, Basic, 6502, Z80). I also spent several months as a part time assistant in a Computer shop.



Hobbies & Interest

Software is a passion, a hobby, and a business; however it is not all that I am. I'm a social person and I love meeting up with my friends, be it at the beach, a BBQ, or a bar. I also love travelling, and have seen many countries and cultures.

I live walking distance from the city and I love the life style it brings. I cycle everywhere and don't even have a car!

I have also written a less formal story of my life .

My personal website, Tony's Wibbles , shows more about me through travel articles, geeky stuff and some plain randomness.

I have written several tools and applications, which I provide for free. One of which, Firefox to KeePass Converter , is downloaded by about 30 visitors each day, and will soon be featured on the DVD of a German computer magazine.
