Stewart had over 20 years of experience in the print publishing industry working at the bleeding edge of technology before deciding that this new-fangled interweb thingummybob was the way forward for a jaded middle-aged hack who likes to spend more time with his dogs than is probably healthy. He stole a Sinclair ZX81 from a rich friend who couldn't be bothered to work out how to use it in the early eighties and soon moved on the the Spectrum, the Commodore 64, the Amiga and the Atari ST. In the mid eighties he saw a Mac Classic in a Travel Agency in Rickmansworth and immediately fell in love. He has never been the same since.
