Hi, I’m Matthew, from the UK. I’ve a little experience of programming… I did basic on the BBC Model B 32K my folks bought circa 1982. I mainly played Elite though, and would always ship narcotics as they seemed lucrative, though I didn’t know what narcotics were, or why the police would always shoot at me. I digress… I messed about with basic programming and watched contemporaries get internet connections and visit bulletin boards, and start hacking. I got into girls and beer instead. I’m pretty handy on excel and can manipulate VB code when I need to.
The internet seems so narrow now… so I’m fully supportive of attempts to broaden and balance it, if that can help us establish a happy, sustainable, non-violent way of life then I’m right behind it.
I’m always looking to learn new things, pick up new tricks, not afraid to get things wrong.
Excited to come here!
