Ian David Smith


I'm six feet tall, have very dark hair, and brown eyes. I was born at the end of 1967 in Barnet, Hertfordshire. Until recently, I have lived within 30 minutes drive of there - mainly in Southgate, North Finchley, New Barnet and Welwyn Garden City. Now I live in Ilkley, West Yorkshire


I work for what I shall describe as a very large computer company, and I am what they describe as an IT Architect.


Music, books, good food, nice wine, the English language, Father Ted, tinkering with technology, gadgets, Linux, clever people1, and Everquest (Poggin, Eides and Sonnette on Xev).


Bad music, poor use of English, tabloid newspapers and stupid people2.

1I am not as humble as I might be2Nor am I as arrogant as I sound
