These pages should eventually contain a stack
of stuff about me, my family, work etc.etc, but for now, just
a lil bit about lil ol me....
My name is Colin Michael Ormsby, and I currently
(updated 10th Feb 2005) live in the town of South Shields, in the North-east of the UK. I just got back from a year in Australia, a beautiful country with MUCH better weather than we have here!!! Lots of memories, some good, some bad, some wonderful and some terrible - but overall, if I could go back a year in time, I'd still go, so overall can't have been a bad thing.
There are some sections of this site which will
be updated on an almost daily basis - others which will remain
untouched, potentially for months - this site is, as much as anything
else, an outlet for me - somewhere I can vent my spleen, state
my opinions, rage at the world or just sit back relax and have
a smile. Somewhere I can come to relax and appreciate how good
things are, or somewhere I can come and hide when things aren't
There will be, undoubtedly, some extremely useful
information contained within the site - but information is, by
its' very nature, only useful to those who have a use for it.
Not only that, but I have every intention of letting this site
grow in as organic fashion as possible - if I think of something
I want on here, I'll find a way to add it. This may lead to a
confusing maelstrom of opinions, information, and nonesense, but
I repeat, this is MY site, and it will serve whatever purpose
I decide I need it to at the time.
With a little luck, it will also serve you, the
visitor, in some fashion - maybe as a source of information, a
source of entertainment - something to make you smile, cry, grin
like a loon or even give you the opportunity to think "What
the hell is he on about - he's a fool". You have as much
right to have an opinion of me, as I have to put my opinions in
Anyway, more about me, and less about the site.....
I am the proud father of 2 wonderful boys, Jack
and Dominic, and a kind of step
father come uncle to a beautiful young girl, Bethany.
More information about them, should you want it, is in the family
In my spare time I do a little work for myself,
producing Web Pages and other computer based products for a range
of companies, including Sunderland
Body Art, Able
Group Security, Jetpatcher
(UK) Ltd, WinSunD
Ltd, MAJ Paints Ltd, QRP
Ltd, and QRP
Northern, all of which I do under the guise of Isotope
If you're at all curious about my use of the nickname
Slaveofconvention, then you'll just have to get to know me, THEN
ask.... I might even tell you.... Or, look around, there may be
an explanation on this site somewhere :p (like
I have nothing else of any great importance to say
at this point, so if you feel like getting in touch, for whatever
reason, feel free to contact me.
