I used to be a strange thing called a Pro-Rata Part-Time Assistant Lecturer in the School of Computing at DIT, where I worked variable number of hours each year from 1996 until 2006. I also worked as a freelance programmer, trading as Netrogen.
I used to lecture on relational database theory. If you're interested in the relational model, I have plans to create a site at relationalmodel.info espousing my own particular biases and half-assed notions about the relational model and denigrating anyone who disagrees with me with a cheap insult: it seems to be the “done thing” in that field ;o)
I share my birthday with Joseph Marie Jacquard, inventor of the Jacquard loom. Although it was not the first machine to use punch cards, it is considered to have been the machine that perfected their use. The Jacquard loom is considered a landmark in the development of programmable machines and a precursor to the modern computer.
I am a member of the Friends of Charles Darwin.
My user page on WikiPedia, User:EmmetCaulfield, will tell you far more than you ever wanted to know about me.
I also have an account on YouTube, which I never use. YouTube is the existential proof that “opinions are like assholes”.
