Month: July 2015

July 24, 2015
There was once a time – 15-20 years ago – when I was always fiddling with a computer in my spare time. I was heavily into Fidonet, and an early adopter of the internet. To my pride, I designed a little bit of software that was quickly picked by others in the UK wishing to bridge between Fidonet and the internet (the actual programming was kindly done by John English); and my old Fidonet system, Minstrel’s Hall, provided many of my friends with their first internet address.

Then a little later, I taught myself php and perl (in that order, strangely), and went to work designing modifications for systems like phpBB and Wordpress, not to mention the now-long-defunct Filklore Music Store.

The three Bishop Grosseteste University Community Choirs (Vocal Authority, Coop Choir and Treble Cliff) are joining together to bring an evening of upbeat, cheerful songs from musicals to The Venue!
