Status: Been seeking work since I turned 50.
I've worked in IT since 1984 (it feels like its been over 2 centuries), and since 1989 as a contract analyst/programmer/developer/tea-maker/etc. I've been developing (on and off) in Tcl/Tk since the late 90s. My experience is (mostly) in *nix and Microsoft environments, with databases & GUI interface development.
I lived near the pretty city of Bristol in the south west of England, in a place popularised by the fantastic band Portishead (showing my age again).
Summary of last roles
I created tools (a) for analysing and displaying problematic satellite data frames/records, of various formats and structures, received by an IBB, and (b) a front end for creating Terma TSC test scripts for testing the IBB.
I designed and developed the Tcl/Tk part of the On Line Mission Support and Evaluation system (OLMSE) to manage and analyse telemetry from the European Robotic Arm (ERA) which is (will be) mounted on the Russian segment of the International Space Station for Spacebel NV as part of the Dutch Space/ESA MPTE (Mission Preparation Training & Evaluation) project.
