Timothy Evans personal information home page

I live in Hampshire, England.


I currently work at the UK's leading provider of air traffic control services, NATS. (Please note the usual disclaimer applies.) I joined NATS in December 2007. I work as a systems administrator with Unix, Windows and network systems.


I studied Physics at University College Cardiff, now Cardiff University and graduated in 1984. Whilst studying Physics, I became interested in Computing and decided to make a career in IT.

Having left University, I spent two years working for a Community Programme run by Cynon Valley Borough Council (which became part of Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council on 1 April 1996). Initially I worked with an Apple 3 computer then Apple Mac Plus systems. Later I worked for the Health Service at Coldeast Hospital in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Health Authority (which was dissolved). Here I introduced Apricot PCs (running DOS ) in to three area offices.

I worked at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory from 1989 to 1998. At RAL I worked extensively with Novell NetWare systems and then more generally in networking and Linux systems. In June 1998, I joined Hytec Information Systems Ltd. which became Hytec Information Security Limited , where I worked as a Technical Consultant until January 2003. In April 2008 OLM Group Limited secured a controlling stake in Hytec. I left Hytec to join Oxford University Press to work as a systems administrator, working on Unix systems until 2007.
