Me

I just happened to be digging this out for something else, and thought I could include it here:

It is obviously from my pre-stroke days, but only by a few years. I was a keen cyclist back then – I still have that shirt and it was an XS! It was taken on the Dutch island of Texel (I didn’t cycle there, but I cycled while I was there), really close to a memorial (a mangled propeller) of a Lancaster bomber, which crashed there during the war.

There are thousands more photos on my Flickr stream. although I don’t bother much any more. I could blame this on the stroke, but that’s not really true – there were several months between shots even before the stroke.

For many years I designed and developed IT systems for big banks. I had a stroke a couple of years ago, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing things from home, not quite at the levels I used to, but saves on the travel! My time is also filled with some voluntary work for the UK charities Age UK and the [UK] Stroke Association. Incidentally, I created this account with the alias "sca11y" but have since aligned it with the name of my blog.
