I grew up in South Africa. In 1967 I came to Cambridge for postgraduate study in applied mathematics, and after I obtained my Ph.D. I stayed on to work for the Computing Service. Over the last 30 years I have written a lot of software of various sorts. Some major projects were text editors and text formatters for use on an IBM mainframe system.
After moving from the mainframe environment to Unix around 1990, I became more and more involved with email. This lead to my starting to develop Exim in 1995, and the PCRE regular expression library two years later. These open source projects have both turned out to be larger and more successful that I expected.
