About Me

Well hello there, and thank you for dropping by my little website.

Before I go and self-indulge myself by saying how good I am, you are probably better off coming and asking what you want to know on
twitter, where you will probably find me lurking!

Now back onto the self-indulgent talking about myself.

Well, I am Paul, Paul James if we’re going to get all official. You may wonder why the “Damien” bit from my web address – well that’s my middle name.

I’m in my early 30s, depending how out of date I have let this page get, I could be in my mid 30s – but for certain December 2010, I’m 31.

I live in Manchester, England with my partner Chris – yip I’m a poofter!

I’ve been gay for as long as I can remember now, so if it offends you, or you don’t like it then I suggest you go away, go on, shoo! As I ain’t changin’ any time soon, and I can’t really be arsed with it anymore?

I am a bit of a geek, to put this in context for you, I’ve been a geek way before geek became chic – I have been about on the internet for about two decades now in various guises. I’ve followed pretty much every trend, I’m an “early adopter”, have beta tested for the likes of Barclays Bank, Google and Microsoft, and joined Twitter even before Mr Stephen Fry!

I’m into some pretty geeky stuff, like developments in HTML, who’s buying which website, and have quiet an interest in privacy.

I have worked in practically every sector possible and have most recently finished a 5 year stint in the Public Sector – working as a Project Manager for a college, and I am now trying out this self-employment, “entrepreneur” thing – I felt it was time, I’m a grown up now and know lots of important things like how to program a VCR (I bet the kids of today don’t even know what a VCR is) so I decided to give it a go.

I don’t really know what else you would want to know. As I said come and find me on twitter, there is a page somewhere which lists all my social networks if you’re not on Twitter.

Their is a relatively large “Archive” of posts that have been brought to this domain from other blogs I have have, including a few posts from the excitingly saucy Mary Blighthouse, with her views on TV, and the few personal blogs I have had in the past.

There is still a treasure trove of stuff I need to dig out from my first website – which I will one day dig out of the archive and put online – this is where most of my online content from the old days resides so should be fun to find and put online again.
