I am an ex- Film & TV Makeup Artist. I worked on several notable films and a TV Series and dozens of smaller ones.
In 1980 I bought a Sinclair ZX80, plugged it in and typed "Can you play chess?" When it responded with "Syntax error" I thought "Hmm, there's more to this than I thought!"
Subsequently taught myself Sinclair SUPERBasic, took a Distance-Learning Course in 'C' Programming and worked in the Data Managment Team at LeasePlan UK, before retiring 7 years ago.
Currently struggling to finish my website and with SEO.
