Windows 3.1 operating system was released in 1992, as I began studying at Ruskin College Oxford, using a tax rebate that year, I purchase a 386DX IBM compatible computer, with Windows 3.1 and Microsoft Works installed, black and white 12" screen and a dot matrix printer from Morgan Computers.

I started designing posters and fliers for student events and fixing other students computers and showing them how to use them.


While studying for a Masters at University of Warwick, my parents contributed towards the purchase of a Toshiba Laptop computer (£1,000) which again I still have, windows 3.1 using Microsoft Works and Pressworks

My introduction to the world of personal computers came with the purchase of a Sinclaire ZX81 in 1981 (now in the wardrobe) which plugged into the portable TV and used a casette record to load and save data.
