Experience outside academic institutions


Casual farm labour. 1968 - 1978. Employer - E.H.B. Neill


Operating hay making machinery. 1976 - 1978. Employer - E.H.B. Neill


Landscape gardening & Handyman work. 1983 - 1984. Employer - R.M.S. Crofts


Computer Operating (MVS/JES3) 1985 - 1986. Employer - The Shell Company of Australia

While operating I was allowed to perform the following Shell operator tasks :-

  • simple job restarts
  • IPLing and shutting down the system
  • executing the daily batch run
  • executing the housekeeping suite
  • monitoring shell's network
  • operating the printers
  • mounting tapes
  • doing the despatch duties

I believe I was promoted to systems programming because of the many useful tools I wrote for the operators in my spare time. These include a tape query from the operator console and many others.


Systems Programming (MVS/JES3) 1987 - 1989. Employer - The Shell Company of Australia

I was competent at using most MVS system components such as TSO and ISPF. I could write assembler, PL/I and clist. I could program ISPF from clist, and both assembler and PL/I programs. While system programming at Shell I wrote several assembler exits for MVS and JES3. One of my tasks was assisting in the maintenance of HSM, IBM's Hierarchical Storage Manager. My most outstanding achievement was modifying the account code computer resource accounting system to use RACF and providing an ISPF management tool for the manipulation of RACF account codes.


Part Time Assistant Bowling Green Keeper. 1991 - 1999. Employer - R.M.S. Crofts


Computerising and Managing
The Berwick Cemetery Trust Register.
1991 - 2005 Employer - R.M.S. Crofts

Before I used Microsoft Access to computerise the Cemetery Register all records were stored on paper in date of burial order. Now that the Register is computerised it is now longer necessary to search the entire Register for a simple Surname query. I have also written software that allows the automatic generation of Section Maps at regular intervals. The Section Maps take the form of a Web Page because of the ease in which tables can be generated using HTML. Please note that I had to manually enter all Register records in to Microsoft Access.


Emergency Berwick Cemetery Secretary. 1994 - 2005 Employer - R.M.S. Crofts


 

Developing the ERMHA Website. 2000 - 2002 Employer - Eastern Regions Mental Health Association

I was able to convince ERMHA that I could make them a satisfactory Home Page easily and cheaply. They decided on a minimal home page in preference to more expensive options. 


 

Tape Mounting Contract (MVS/JES2) 2001 Employer - Computer Science Corporation

I mounted cartridges for CSC an outsourcer for one and a half months under contract from PAXUS in Clayton.
