About Me

Colin Seymour

My name is Colin Seymour, Esq. and I was delivered to mum and dad, in Johannesburg, South Africa, on one fine summer day a long long time ago, by a great big african stork. Ok, the truth, many years ago, part of me (the Y chromosome part) won my very first race, all 3 inches of it. It was a tough race as the odds were heavily stacked against me - probably in the region of about 80 million to 1, but I did it. After winning that race, I spent about 9 months in this nice cosy cabin causing all sorts of havoc and decided enough was enough on my birthday and went for a walk - well more of a stumble at that time.

In the years that followed, I did a bit of schooling - 7 years at Bordeaux Primary School, 5 years at Ferndale High School - went to Wits University for a while and headed off to greener pastures.

I may now live in the UK, however I am still...

I now share the ownership of a lovely two bedroom flat just outside Reading with my fantastic fiancée wife, Claire.

My Other Sites

I'm a true hardcore techie and accordingly, I don't run Windows. As a result, I develop my site to look good in Firefox and Safari. This is because I have easy access to these two browsers on Solaris/Linux/Mac OS X, and more importantly, because Firefox is Standards Compliant. If you spot any problems when viewing with Internet Explorer, please take a screenshot and contact me. I'll try my best to correct things, but I can't guarantee it'll be in a timely manner.

Creative Commons License

As we live in a world of software patents, copyrights and a general "sue for the sake of suing" culture, I'm looking out for #1. Everything on this site, unless otherwise stated, is covered by a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License.


I try my best to ensure that my site is as standards compliant as possible. Unfortunately, that does mean sometimes things look horrible on browsers that do no comply with the required standards (Internet Explorer mainly), but I try to code round these when I find such a problem.
