A Brief History of Gavin
Born Gavin James Regnart on 21 January 1970 at RAF Cosford, Shropshire,
and brought up in Stafford, I'm now a 50 year-old computer programmer
living in Birmingham, England. The programs you'll find on
the Free Software pages are not my professional efforts - they
were written for recreation (and world-wide admiration perhaps).
Outside of programming and web-publishing, my main interests are
music and cinema. I have varied tastes, and among my favourites
are Clint Eastwood, Woody Allen, Frank Sinatra, R.E.M., Bob Dylan
and Steven Spielberg.
I have written a great many songs in my time, and the lyrics to
a few can be found in Poetry Corner. I cannot claim to have been
as prolific in film-making, but I did once feature in a short, silent,
art-house movie (sorry, I meant curry-house), which is available
for a free download via the Miscellany link.
Not a great sportsman, I have been known to swim and play a little
badminton (separately!). I also follow the 'fortunes' of Wolverhampton
Wanderers Football Club.
