tony sellick playing guitarMy name is Tony Sellick and I have had a long standing interest in computers and electronics. It all started when I worked as a draughtsman at what was then, English Electric Computers at Kidsgrove, Staffordshire back in 1967 when a computer was bigger than an average garage!

I was only there for just over a year but the job left me with a permanent interest in computers and electronics which persists to this day.

Later on in life I took my radio hams' examination obtaining the call sign G7LPB which I still hold and was one of the first to buy a home computer around 1980 when the Commodore VIC20 went on sale. I spent many a happy hour on that writing programs in BASIC and when the Internet started I was soon on line starting with a Windows 3.0 PC in 1995 having dabbled in the delights of MS-DOS for years:-) On line in those days meant using a 14.4k modem! Broadband didn't exist and it was not unusual for a web page to take half a minute or more to load!

tony sellick playing keyboardsI designed my first web site in 1997 using Netscape Composer which was included with Netscape Navigator Browser long before Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome were heard of. Nowadays I do my web sites in Adobe Dreamweaver and try and use CSS to make them easier to modify if needed.

My other website is about Forklift Training and is over 800 pages. I have designed other websites for my son’s School of Motoring and my Sister in law’s Child minding company.

Apart from computers and forklifts my passion is music. I play keyboards and guitar and spent many years playing in bands around Shropshire. I also have a collection of over 60,000 karaoke tracks. I'm married to Lindsay who I send out to work whilst I persue my hobbies now I'm retired:-)
