John Charles Edward D'Alton. I have worked in the electronics industry all my life and in later years also in the computer industry. We operated our own D'Alton Sound Service for electronics and VsoftwareZ for computer software and computer club. I held an Amateur Radio licence VK4ZAG for many years.

I am a member of Brisbane Seniors On Line (BSOL), Brisbane West Senior Citizens Centre Inc. and teach computers at both places. I also teach computers privately. I write books using DeskTopPublishing (DTP) applications. I have written “My Life” and various travel books after our journeys. Also books about computer history and me and of ballroom history and us. Another of my projects is to make people aware that we should all being doing more to archive things, to advise future generations of this material. See my archiving equipment on the right.
