Who are you?
I’m Simon, a 30-something technologist, living on the edge of the Cotswolds. I work for Microsoft UK in Reading as a Consultant during the day, and have a broad range of interests and hobbies to keep the evenings & weekends busy.
I am 2013 Graduate of the University of Reading, where I studied and loved Computer Science (BSc), leaving with a 1:1 Honours Degree.
I have had a life long obsession with anything mechanical, electronic, computational, scientific or simply powered by petrol.
I have owned and loved many high performance Japanese classic sports cars, including over the years a Fairlazy Z, several Nissan Silvias – and a handful of Honda motorcycles.
When I am outdoors, I fly and build radio controlled aircraft.
At my desk I am a qualified radio amateur, currently holding an intermediate licence and working towards the next steps, primarily I enjoy HF operating and fiddling with antennas, but I can be found on VHF & UHF trying to catch Satellite skips.
I can sometimes be found playing with Video production, photography when time allows.
I am not the most reliable of bloggers, but when I find something out I couldn’t solve on the web, I like to add it to my blog to “Complete the internet” and give something back. So welcome to my space, and feel free to reach out to me if you think there is something I can help with, work or personal.
