Ex Ships Radio / Electronics Officer - to 1974

Built from kits - Nascom 2 computer, Maplin Modem, Teleprinter terminal unit, AX25 Node controller

Repaired and (briefly) operated a Creed 7 teleprinter - at 45 baud!.

Ran the Cider County BBS, until the Millennium Bug (and the Internet) killed it off.

Became interested in Linux in the late 90's and started to embrace (rather than resist) IPv6 about 2005.

Currently, I run DNS, Web, Wiki, and Stratum-1 time servers for my personal use, and operate a public-facing mail server.
All except the Wiki are IPv4/IPv6 dual protocol.
