I was born with FSH (facioscapulohumeral: "face, shoulder, upper arm") muscular dystrophy, a muscle-wasting condition that is usually inherited but shows no sign in either of my parents. The doctors call this a "novel mutation;" I call it bad fucking luck.

I grew up in Worcester, UK, lived in Kidderminster for a while before ending up in Gloucester.

I worked at a museum for a few years back in the days of FoxPro 2.0 and Windows 3.1, before working at a printing factory and enjoying the thrills of maintaining a network of Windows 95 machines. (In 2003 I bought my first Mac and have never looked back.) Nowadays I build average websites and fix software (i.e. user) issues for fun.

The last movie I watched was Alien Resurrection (1997) and I am currently reading .
