What do you think of my stuff....?

 

It seems I've picked up a number of dedicated readers for my British sense of humour.

 

Fine and appreciated......But no-one has yet left any comment, praise, critisism, help or advice.

 

PLEASE FOLKS..........IT TAKES JUST A FEW SECONDS TO COMMENT......IT WOULD BE REALLY APPRECIATED............

Profile Information

Hi, I'm 66, retired and living in a lovely village on the south coast of the UK.with my wife of 44 years.

My very first brush with "Communications" ....Long Before the expression "Information Technology" was even thought of was being "commanded" to answer the telephone by the matriach lady whom my mother worked for......I was about 7 and scared witless.

Since then having had a very long career in an office environment I have witnessed and used most of the vast array of gadgets and applications that have been developed over the years. Whilst I can only admire, these techological developments and their effect on all our daily lives, I do believe that each advance has begat it's humourous side either in the methods we employ to communicate with each other or indeed the changes in the vocabulary we use.

"Unlikely Conversations" is a collection of (I hope you will agree) humorous sketches surrounding IT themes

When I first answered that phone the "Internet" was not even thought of yet here am I some sixty years later publihing about 35,000 words with a few clicks and copy/pastes.

My tome is finished now.  Given the number of contributors to this site alone whether it now disappears into cyberspace I know not. It's my contribution and it's been fun writing it.....
