|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.

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.

Techie docs for mystery Acorn CAD workstation surface
Documentation for Acorn's 1988 prototype 'high end' technical publishing workstation have been scanned and published online by collector-of-old-kit Chris Why. The A680 was an advanced Archimedes-series machine that ran Acorn's Unix attempt, RISC iX. It was initially powered by a 25MHz ARM2 and had a 67MB hard disc with up to 8MB of RAM and a monochrome display.
