Bellsie 14 Nov 1996 - 17 March 2012
She may have been only 1.5 kilos but the place she filled in our family was huge,
We will miss you, Bellsie.
Eight beautiful cats lived at our place.
1 Scottish fold, 1 Scottish short hair, and 6 Munchkins.
With regret, Dude left us on 12 January 2013, just 3 days short of his 4th birthday. We just could not stop him finding new ways to escape our yard.
In October we lost Moonie and Ewok who both had chinchilla heritage and succumbed to kidney issues. All much loved and missed.
Once upon a time ...
... I was a programmer with Burroughs Ltd. This was the process:
1. SHARPEN a pencil
2. FIND a soft eraser
3.CREATE code on coding sheets
4.CHECK logic and punctuation. It matters in coding.
5.SUBMIT for punching.
6.INPUT the cards into card reader
7.CHECK the printout for number of errors, and correct the code.
8.REPEAT stage 7 until error-free.
9. FINALLY Run the program!
10.WAIT for payday (40c a card!)
Now here is a simulation of the process from Masswerk. at http://www.masswerk.at/google60/ (accessed 6 Jun 2013).

Note that you will be asked to make some choices along the way.
And have your sound on!
Once upon a time I created a website. As I have left the school it has gone but here is a pic from 2009 via the Wayback machine.
The links are unlikely to work now. Dreamweaver was too expensive so I learned to code. I am still very proud of this.
