Hi Everyone

My name is Glyn and I'm a 52 year old IT fossil living in Leicester.

I found the RCM whilst searching for information on the second computers I worked on the Rank Xerox Sigma V back in the mid 70's.

I've been in IT since 1975, starting as a computer operator on Honeywell DDP516 minis, then the Rank Xerox Sigma V then I moved into programming in assembler and Fortran 4 on ICL2960 and 2966, Vax 11-780 & 785 and Data General Nova 3 with a Megatek 7000 graphics system before moving on to the more modern stuff.
I'm still in IT as a database manager/development specialist at a large private boarding school and have the honour of being a Fellow of the Institute of Analaysts and Programmers.

Was great having a chat with Andy earlier when he called to pickup my old Pet 8032, I know it's now got a good home and will be preserved for the future :)

Keep up the great work, these machines need champions before they all disappear.
