I am John Lines, born in Edinburgh, educated at George Heriots School, and read Physics at Southampton University. I then worked at Harwell until I retired in June 2015.
When I was about 12 my best friend at school had a neighbour who was a Professor at the Department of Machine Intelligence and Perception at Edinburgh University, so my friend and I used to go and use their computers after school, writing simple programmes in POP-2.
This blog covers things I am interested in – which covers a wide range. At the moment much of the content relates to Family History, but there will be more on Internet and other technical topics when/if I have time.
