After more than 50 years working with computers, almost 30
years running my own IT consulting company and about 25 years
as an ACT! Certified Consultant I have decided it's time to
take a long holiday. I've moved out of Sydney to a place in
the country, deregistered the company, turned off the business
phone and fax and settled into a life of leisure.
Actually, there won't be too much leisure, because I will
continue to write about science and critical thinking at my
hobby site and for publications like
Australasian Science, write occasional articles about
business and computers on the blog here, post informative stuff
on Twitter at
collect everything together at my personal site and rant on
its blog at
finish writing the three books that I should have finished long
ago and spend weekends chasing rally cars for
and various newspapers.
Just because I'm not doing it full time doesn't mean that
I've forgotten everything I know or used to know. I can still
sell copies and upgrades of Act! and Handheld Contact, and I
can even provide some support and training. I might live in
the bush but I have the NBN and I've had success operating clients'
computers from a distance, so if you want anything just drop
me an email using the link at the bottom of the page. Email
gets checked a couple of times a day so you will usually get
a reply by the next business day.
I would like to thank all of the clients and suppliers I've
worked with over the decades. I have had very few bad debts
caused by clients simply not paying and a couple where business
failures were legitimate, but overall clients paid on time and
what they owed me. Several were clients for many years, so I
must have been doing something right. I won't insult them by
selling them to another company but I'm happy to refer them
if they need something that I can't do or don't choose to do.
Now, I'm sure there's a fishing rod in my shed and the local
paper tells me that the trout are plentiful in the dam ... .
