About me.

I grew up in near Bolton until I moved to Cambridge(UK) where I did my degree in Physics (well, Natural Sciences) at Churchill College. I liked the place so I stayed in the area, working as a software engineer. Some day I'll get round to writing else something here (maybe).


Here is a list of projects which I am working on and consider useful. If you would like to get involved with these, please let me know.

This is a copyleft Master Boot Loader for the x86 PC. The most recent source code is available for download. Older versions are available in the archive. Don't miss the screenshots.
