    40 years ago today: me, IBM and Caravan

    At the tender age of just short of 16 years and 11 months, I received confirmation of my first full time employment. Starting on the 30th June, I would be employed as a vacation student, in the ROSS users group, part of RESPOND at IBM Havant. 4 years later, having studied computing science at Imperial College, and working my summer holidays in various roles in operations departments, I was re-employed full time as an IMS / PL/I programmer.

    I celebrated 25 years in 2004. Had I not left in 2009, I would now be in my 37th year.

    On the same day, 40 years ago, my favourite band Caravan were recording a session for the John Peel radio show. They played “The Show of Our Lives”, “Stuck in a Hole” and “The Dabsong Conshirto(e)”, all from Cunning Stunts.

    I still enjoy programming, and I still enjoy listening to Caravan. Every single day.
