Why hasn’t he looked for me?

09/10/2001

You know what weirds me out? My father was a computer programmer for ICL in the early 70s. I know that much. So while he’d be over sixty now, if he’s still alive, I doubt that he’s completely computer illiterate. So what are the chances that he’s done a vanity search on the web for his own name? And it’s pretty much identical to mine. So it’s quite likely he’s seen this site. It’s quite likely he’s been here. That’s what gets to me. That he might have been here and still not got in touch.

Addendum: After a conversation with my mother, I suddenly realised that I don’t know whether it was my father or my first step-father (Brian Kelvin) that worked for ICL. I do know that my father was a computer programmer though.
