I am a computer engineer and have a 20+ years experience of large environments and platforms.

I have done lots of storage (SCSI, SSA, fc) at the hba, interconnect and driver levels.
Non linear video editing systems (light works and avid).
Lots of networking transmission, protocols and servers.
I have been a Unix guy/ platform lead type person for the last few (7-8) years within a number of investment banks. (Many thousands of servers).

I am currently integrating a product called Splunk into HSBC.

You could just call me a nerd.

I drive an insane 2gr mk2 with an appetite for rear tyres. I have owned the car for 14 years now.

I have an extremely tedious job in Transport....It takes up far too much of my time, the hours are very unsociable, and it delivers very little in the way of satisfaction....I guess the pay is as good as a retard like me can expect though! We're based near the airport, in Norwich. :yawn:

The car is a '99 Cosmos Blue Mk2 Rev5 2.0GT T-Bar....U.K. car....Recently purchased, and currently totally standard, it shares daily driver duties with my Honda Vision 110 Scooter! :D

Sold my Kawasaki GPZ earlier this year, as it wasn't really getting used. :sad:
'99 2.0GT T-Bar Rev5....Cosmos Blue. :D
