Free automated protection across Microsoft. Suppressing spammers, slamming scammers & catching phishers - day & night! My current favourite hobby! * * * *


Protecting Microsoft platforms and customers with 'spammer hammer' bots.

Early years writing machine code and real-time languages such as RTL2, for various defence radar detection, analysis and tracking systems for missiles and military vehicles, then civil aviation air traffic control. Moved into web development very early. I was one of the first people in the UK to develop in classic ASP, while I was working at Microsoft. Progressed through application & database development, senior test executive (IBM), solution designer, software architect, project manager, head of IT development (Guinness World Records). A Microsoft fan-boy & dedicated tech obsessive, focusing on web, desktop & mobile dev. Recent years spent deep diving every nut and bolt of Azure. 

I am very lucky. 
My hobby is also my job.

I am also busy as always in MSDN, TechNet & Docs communities. I post on several MS blogs and moderator across all forums listed above. I also created and actively maintain various community initiatives, such as a monthly TechNet Guru Competition, weekly TechNet Wiki Contributors Awards, a TechNet Guru Ninja Belt Calculator. I love spinning up projects and shared tools that help many groups, such as the TechNet Wiki Council & passionately involved with

I also run Autoadmin bots, which moderate thousands of Microsoft forums, in any language. Deleting junk posts, protecting Microsoft customers from spam and phishing scams. I lead a small crew of other MVPs around the world, who manage the service day and night.
