Hi. These pages are the personal web scrapbook of Alan Pomeroy.
For the past thirty years I have filled about fifty hours a week helping to shoehorn cube shaped financial systems into toroidal shaped companies. In retirement I am working on a number of projects to give me some personal fulfillment instead.
Originally, one of these projects was to write my life story. After all, if pop stars can fill a biography in their early twenties, then surely I could extract some interesting chapters from my seventy odd years. "Chapter One. Went to school, didn't learn much." "Chapter Two. Got up, went to work, came home, went to bed." After the first hundred pages, even I thought it sounded a bit repetitive and that the only way to make it public would be to pay a vanity publisher.
The web, of course, is a very cheap vanity publisher, but unfortunately the web does not make my life story any more interesting so, apart from a few details on the "about" page, you won't be seeing my biography on this site. Instead, you will find a miscellany of observations, comments, stories and instructions that I hope will entertain you. Since I first wrote this paragraph, things have changed a little. I have started the "Letters from the front" pages, which are a sort of diary and are certainly boigraphical, so maybe this will end up as my life story after all.
The site will be updated on an as and when basis and, as it is the first site that I have built, the design may be somewhat rough and ready until I get my head around the 1001 web development standards and tools, oh and the differences in how browsers render web sites.
