Used to be a software engineer at Britain's only mobile phone maker. Unfortunately it went into administration recently (not my fault, honest!), but we've been taken over by a much larger mobile phone manufacturer, and oh, I'm still a software engineer.

Had a bit-part interest in aircraft etc since I was small and my dad was in the RAF and used to park at the end of the runway watching Lightnings, Jaguars, Tornados, etc fly overhead.

Hey I play guitar too (as well as keyboard). Maybe it's just something on this board, or maybe half the world actually plays the guitar (or local variant)?

Denny's is great as it's always open and serves great waffles with cream and blueberry topping. mmm. Why don't they open them in the UK I ask you!

Actually, a lot of us have a weird sense of humor. A really weird sense of humor.

Oh, and JP: I got one to beat your unicycle...

I drank the coffee at Waffle House.

publius, what is this group about? I'd like to get involved and help out in some space activities even if I don't get paid.


oh yeah, about my sexy self:I'm a Structural Engineer, fixing planes for rich people!

I think about work... In between textbooks. I am still up to my eyeballs in non-engineering lectures.
