I've been working in I.T. since 1997. During that time I have amassed a rather large collection of computers and paraphenalia and now have the equivalent of a small data centre here at home. If you are interested in what I'm running, take a look at my equipment list. Since November 1991 I have been a serving member in the Irish Army Reserve Defence Force.
