Personal IntroductionEdit

I'm a systems programmer by profession, although my degree is in Mathematics. I tend to be obsessive about details, and would appreciate a heads up on anything that I get wrong, even if it's minor. I'm interested in computer languages, fantasy, Mathematics, operating systems, physical sciences, programming languages and science fiction, although I don't have the background to write articles about everything I'm interested in. For the time being, please see my home page for information on my background. I'll try to add some text here as I become more familiar with local customs.

I write aboutEdit

I expect to make minor contributions in articles related to computer architecture, computer history in the second half of the 20th century, operating systems and programming languages. As time allows I may also write articles in those areas.

My contribsEdit

In support of my editing I have constructed a list of reference data, mostly IBM related, that others might find useful.
