Everything you ever wanted to know...

My name's Tim Browse, and I'm probably best described as a programmer. I should warn you that I went through a lot of expensive lawsuits to ensure that this is the case, so don't try getting funny about it.

I used to be unemployed, and loved it! Then I was employed again, and it sucked. Now I'm unemployed again! It's great! Well, I'm doing a bit of freelance work to pay for luxuries like the mortgage, but you get the idea.

The last project I worked on before my current job was the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" game for a company called Phase 3 Studios. Sadly that game never shipped. Which was a shame, as it could have been great. Anyway, in my spare time I do various bits of development. I learned a bit about PHP - as you may have noticed, this web site uses PHP pretty heavily.

Rap Sheet

In my long and lustrous career, I have worked on the following projects, which are in reverse order, like all the best awards ceremonies:

As you can see, I have left a trail of gasping and/or moribund companies in my wake, as I bestride the world like a Colossus!

Or something.


Here's where it all started for me...

7167 bytes free. Ah, bless!

The first computer I ever used was a Commodore PET 2001. Yes, 7,167 bytes free when you turn the machine on. Read that and weep, web programmers. You know who you are - as one of my lecturers used to say: "The kind of programmer who can't even store the time of day in less than 8k." (He was referring to AI programmers at the time, but the sentiment still stands.)

Here I shall shortly ramble on about the computers I owned and/or used, as if anyone really gives a toss now.
