Robin Nixon has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s (his first computer was a Tandy TRS 80 Model 1 with a massive 4KB of RAM!). One of the web sites he developed presented the world's first radio station licensed by the music copyright holders. In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows. He has also worked full time for one of Britain's main IT magazine publishers, where he held several roles including editorial, promotions, and cover disc editing.

All I can say is I felt a little bit like Daniel Larusso on the Karate Kid. I had no idea why but I waxed the cars, painted the fence, and even sanded the floor but when it came time for the tournament, I was not confident I could throw any punches or block any kicks. I think I will have to find a different Mr. Miyagi before I feel confident enough step in to the ring.
