Realname: David Wisnia
About me:Consultant Head teacher, Fieldhead Carr primary school, Leeds. Started with Commodore Pet in 1981 followed by BBC machines - all varieties. Wrote Newsline, a teleprinter simulator for Leeds EdIT Centre (which runs on BBC B all the way through to Iyonix). Have also used extensively DOS, Windows (3.1 up to XP Pro) and written databases in MS Access. Now a dedicated heavy user (everything runs through the Iyonix at home, including my laptops through RDP client). At school I push Textease to do everything to support teaching and learning - an extraordinary program ! Now only working 2 days a week in school and have my own IT business involved with training, analysis and reporting together with an embryonic managed primary school websites enterprise. RISCOS is still used 90% of the time!!!
