A PERSONAL BIO

Well, let’s start at the beginning. I’m Vincent (or Vince) and I am getting closer to my forties then I would like! I currently live in Colchester. I’m still getting the know the area but I do like the fact that I’m a very short train ride away from the east coast.

I currently work for Civica. I am the team leader for their Keystone Application support team. I currently spend the day dealing with customers on the phone and via email. The application is based on MS SQL and IIS.

Previously I worked for Subex UK, in their BT Support department. I helped ensure that several Unix and Oracle SQL systems were running. I also helped keep the Business Objects system ticking along. This involved being on call 24/7 for one week every month!

I have previously worked full time as an IT Consultant making sure the HR and Pension systems don’t blow up or delete everybody’s details. During this work 1 week a month, I also handled the call out for these systems.

Home Life

During the evenings and weekends, I keep my self busy with occasional picture taking with my Digital SLR or playing with my Raspberry Pi.

I love technology and electronics and I am currently looking to build a “plug & play” home automation system based on the Raspberry Pi platform. This will include control of plug sockets to start with, but I do intend to include other controls later.

When I am not playing with my SLR or Raspberry Pi, I will be blogging over on my Tech Blog (www.talktech.info).

Thanks for reading this far. Why not head over to my personal blog?

Thanks,

Vincent
