I’m Tom Thorogood, or more formally I’m Thomas Henry Thorogood. I live in Adelaide, Australia, but I’m also a citizen of the United Kingdom. My earliest memory of a computer was playing Lemmings on a bulky computer running either Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. I can still remember the elation at getting a new computer with Windows 98SE. Since then I’ve dabbled in everything from electronics to cryptography.
