So, exactly who is the "Nathan Dimmock" person, I hear you ask? Well, he was originally born in Gloucester and lived until the age of 18 in a very pleasant but incredibly dull place called the Royal Forest of Dean (although he did sneak across the border each day to attend Monmouth Comprehensive school). He then embarked on a degree in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge where he spent three years at Jesus College learning how to deal with permanent sleep deprivation and wondering what this thing called "free time" was (and how one went about obtaining some).
After completing his degree, he wandered around Canada for 6
months drinking coffee and apparently acquiring a "comedy
Canadian accent". He returned to Cambridge to undertake a
PhD in distributed systems, although he seemed to
spend most of his time partying, supervising undergraduates,
administering UNIX servers
and representing the graduate students on
Important College Committees. He did occasionally do some research, and eventually drank enough coffee
that a thesis was written!
After further wanderings around Australia
and New Zealand, he moved to London (via New York) and
finally graduated. He now lives in
a central London
surrounded by as much computing equipment as space permits.
