Alligator Descartes has been an itinerant fiddler with computers
from a very early age, which was ruined only by obtaining a BSc in
computer science from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. His
computing credits include several years of Oracle DBA work, multi-user
Virtual Reality servers, high-performance 3D graphics programming, and
several Perl modules. He spends his spare time trudging around
Scotland looking for stone circles and Pictish symbol stones to
photograph. Alligator Descartes is not his real name.
