The Blogger

What I looked like on January 1, 2020. Selfie-my-way, i.e., taken in a mirror.

It might just be easier and quicker to check out my main Webpage: guruge.com. It is not as rambling as this and has more pictures.


  • I am first and foremost a writer, and have been for most of my adult life, though I also spent 40-odd years (and some of them were very odd indeed) as a computer/networking professional — 20-years as an independent consultant to equipment vendors & an acknowledged world expert on IBM’s ‘SNA’ networking methodology.
  • I write daily — even if I have to do so just in my head when I am on vacation or travelling.
  • I am the sole-author of over 30 books & upwards of 375 technical publications.
  • I blog and take photographs incessantly — and have published at least 7 photos a day, on this blog, without fail, since (at least) 2017.
  • I was born in September 1953 in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) — and ended up being a hospital mix-up.
  • I left Ceylon, with my adoptive parents, in August 1967 — just prior to my 14th birthday — and lived in Buffalo (NY, U.S.A.) for 11-months.
  • I was sent to boarding school in Britain in 1969, grew up over there, became a British citizen in 1983 and still, patriotically & produdly retain that citizenship.
  • I am a bit of a fitness freak and try to walk/jog 5-7 miles nearly every day and try, assiduously, to adhere to a low-carb diet albeit replete with a large glass of (slightly diluted) red wine for medicinal purposes.
  • I wear a high-end smartwatch 24×7, usually a Garmin, and have done so since mid-2017. I currently have two Garmin Fenix 6s.
  • Cricket has been a lifelong passion and I watch at least 40-minutes of cricket most days on Willow TV (via a Roku).
  • I own two old Jags and bought one of my daughters a 1969 MGB.
  • I have two dogs, who I take for walks every day — a female Golden and a male Harrier.
  • I started programming, using paper-tape, in 1969 while attending school at ‘Mill Hill’ in London.
  • I have a M.Sc. (with Distinction) from the University of London in Computer Science (1980).
  • I have not believed in or followed any religion since I was 18, though religion fascinates I and I have written 10+ book on/about popes.
  • Contradiction is a part of my life and I have never aspired to be normal or average.
  • Doing 1/2-day to 5-day, stand up seminars on networking, around the world, was very much a part of my life from 1981 to 1999.
  • It amuses I that I can tell people that I must be the only person whose published bibliography spans: popes, orgasms, networking & pain.
