Sparrowhawk's Profile

A profile... why not.

Some things I enjoy doing: reading, mountain biking, hiking in the mountains, anything with computers, er, most things really. I love to ski, and just wish I could go on a slope longer than 180 metres.
Partly inspired by enjoying DinkC coding, I went to college to learn a bit of Software Development and am now working with some local developers, using VB.NET and C#.

I have many things I should be doing so writing a profile seemed a good way of putting them off.

I live in northwest England (south originally) and, um, that's about it.

I'm making a D-Mod and have some ambitious ideas for future ones but don't expect anything soon!

Wow Dan sorry to hear about all that. Hope it's something treatable that will go away asap and that things take a turn for the better for you both.

Some random wafflings about my last year or so:

I caught covid last March/April (pretty sure anyway, tests weren't available then), it was pretty nasty and I was ill for about 5 weeks and short of breath for some time after. Just now at the beginning of this month my wife caught it and was ill for a week, then I got it again for a week, so we've been in isolation locked in at home with a pile of young children for about 20 days. Such fun

Another sparrowchick hatched in August, we now have 4 boys under the age of 7. Never a dull moment!

My bike was stolen at the beginning of summer, turned out to be a good thing in the end as the insurance paid up nicely so I was able to finally start building my dream bike. Brand new mountain bike I finished putting together in October but have hardly been able to touch since is driving me nuts! Hopefully with the weather turning and some more light in the evenings I'll be able to get out properly soon.

Brexit is causing headaches. The less said the better

I probably spent about half an hour D-Modding. Yay for progress!
