Part 1: What I'm hoping to replace

Usual caveats – you’re unlikely to learn anything here.Additional caveat – this is likely to turn into some rambly sort of thing – I’ve found that editorialising my thoughts helps me focus – my computer has “thinks” documents dating back to my very first software programme – windoWatch it was called, which I wrote on Christmas Day 1989. Of course a year later we got sued over the name by Microsoft – and settled out of court :-) An...
