Dr Caine: Bastard. Legend.
My design and technology teacher at school was a bit of a hero. Quite the wideboy, had the instant respect of everyone in the school. He would frequently abandon lesson plans so we could, as a class, figure out how something he had found or seen worked.

I wanted to be a car designer for a living, and he was kind enough to let me know that I was no where near good enough to do it, so I should think about persuing another career. Best advice I ever had, I doubt you'd be allowed to be that frank with a kid now...

» Killed to DEATH

I killed a cat once...
Was driving home at night and, as I passed a row of cars I saw a flash of cat leg it out from underneath one. By the time I'd moved my foot to the brake it was already underneath the wheel (it basically ran into the side of the front wheel, neither of us stood a chance). I heard it go round the wheel arch a couple of times (whoomph, whoomph). Dead.

Felt genuinely terrible for at least a few weeks... I killed someone's pet. Even thinking about it now makes me sad.

Happy Christmas.

» Old stuff I still know

BT Chargecards
I still remember my BT chargecard number from circa 1993. For those of you who don't remember this was a number you could dial that would reverse the charges to one number AND ONE NUMBER ONLY. Usually your mum and dad.

It was a fifteen digit number. It is etched on my brain for some reason.

I can also edit tape on a reel-reel machine.
