How I became the Clarkson of the PC component and cable world, but without the jeans of curly hair. Or any hair:
It was while I was working for the comedy named Assmann Electronics in Watford in 1996 that I first met Dale Bradford, editor of Indie Magazine.
At the time I was producing a series of adverts for the company, for inclusion in Indie.
Dale and I got chatting and he asked me to do a bit for the magazine on the industry and thus
the Tammy's tales from Telesales feature was born.
It was crap, so I was soon writing as myself about the crazy world of I.T. To the right are links to my various submissions to the magazine since 1996.
Please note, these are the pre-hacked-about-by-my-editor versions. The ones which appeared in the magazine were often shorter and less rude.
Also, they were written for the I.T. trade, so if you don't get every in-joke, I'm sorry. Become an independent computer or console dealer and all will
become clear, I'm sure. In October 2004 I began writing articles for the mag as well as columns. Sadly it all came to an end in December 2004 when the magazine was closed. Boo-hiss.
