I have two main areas of interest and
expertise, geology and computing. At various times, I have
taught both subjects to students at University and
Technical College level.
Dam Site contains material
drawn from my 20 years working for the New South Wales
State Government in Australia as an engineering geologist
on the construction of large dam projects across New South
Included are answers to many frequently asked questions
about dams such as how and why they are built, why some
fail and what effects they can have on the environment.
One special interest of mine in the field of dam
construction is the geology of dam spillways including the
erodibility of the spillway rock and the suitability of
the spillway rock for use as rockfill in the construction
of the dam embankment.
Computer Place contains
material drawn from the 10 years that I have spent in the
fields of computer networking, PC hardware and web site
management working with the Windows and Linux operating
I have IT certification as MCP and MCSE. I was previously
certified as CCNA.
Please note that while I am more than happy to discuss any
of the topics covered on this site and answer questions
where I can, I do not guarantee to answer every email if
you are asking for something that you could have found
just as quickly yourself by searching Google. Please do
NOT ask for braindumps for IT exams!
