Currently bludging at the beach, Bribie Island

I went to The Gap High school (Brisbane), among others, and left in 1978 to take up work at Better Brakes as a junior labourer.

I am divorced (2003 ) and have a lovely daughter who is currently at UQ studing economics.

Before I found out about Atomicmpc, I used to sub to "boot" magazine from the US, which later became "MaximumPC" magazine, I soon dropped that sub, because atomicmpc was better, relevant to Aust. and easier to sub to. But the content and attitudes were very similar.

In the past I have worked in manufacture of transport air-conditioning, Building small (upto 18T) pick and carry cranes (I assembled and fitted the jib)

Also, in no particular order, as a storeman and packer (with fork ticket)

as show crew for high profile AudioVisual companies, SEQld (southeast Queensland)

as a lecturer at the School of audio engineering, Brisbane.

As a sound and lighting technician for several hotels and clubs around SEQld

As a radio tech at CHUBB, fixing fastfood drivethrough comms, or anything from high powered amplifiers to large mixing desks, to security pir's and cameras,
and pagers and pagerbase systems for hospitals and nursing homes.

I have also work in the manufacture of telemetry equipment, In case you don't know, this is the electronics used to open and close dam gates, valves and all sorts of monitoring devices remotely.

Got my first PC 1994, a packardbell 486sx with 8mb ram and a 256mb hd.

Started overclocking the A7v (with a soldering iron) I ended up having 5 of these, -m -e -133 ,

but it's no fun now, with easy bios settings.

I like to play counterstrike (css) against my bots on the pc.

I play and write with my guitars and what audio equipment I have left. I have a 1973 Fender Quadreverb (mods, black-face, valve insert send and return, 2 12" celestians 75W, and a reactive volume-reducer (which also gives a post amp line out, hp out and 3db pad.) also a switch to turn off half the output stage.

I have also designed and built a valve amp, called "DUALLY", 2 input sections (like a mesaboggie) and dual output stage (this is an AB amp, but also class A, by a switch). One real love, adrenaline pumping power, especially when the chasis is on the bench, and a DVM, signal generator and crow setup, to monitor a 400Hz square wave and watch how fast it heats up, with the soldering iron and a bag of caps and resistors at the ready.

I have a Black US 1991 fender stratocaster, with a monster switch (10 combinations, want a schem, pm me)
and a Maton cedar top EMJ-620c acoustic guitar.

Still looking for a new partner (fm), one day, I guess I'll have to go out for that, lol.

cheers, Glenn
