My name is Catherine Leah Palmer, an 50-ish woman living in London (the big one in England, not some yokel drive-through town in Hicksville, USA) near Olympia exhibition centre, and who works for a large British company which shall remain nameless as their publicity department does more than enough already (in fact their weekly advertising budget would make a nice annual turnover for many small businesses).
I currently live alone, with a lovely rat-snake and a little chequered garter snake for company, have recently acquired a pair of guinea pigs. I would love to get a pair of cats (two to keep one another company whilst I'm not at home during the day), but I have too many ornaments and antique clocks to risk leaving them alone all that time; locking them into the spare room would only be cruel.
Unfortunately for me, all of my work is PC-based, which means I'm hardly in the mood for staring at a VDU during the evening, modelling or writing; thus this takes up most of my week-ends. Without going into too much detail, I deal with databases, the standards of data that users are supposed to adhere to, the creation of questions using an esoteric language called Focus (a bit like SQL but more versatile for creating tabular data) to interrogate the data, and VB programs to automate various processes. Recently, I have learned .asp and now create web-based front-ends to various MySQL databases.
