About Me

This page is stll under construction, please check back regularily for updates!

My nickname, DJ Chalky, came together in 2 parts:

  • My full name is Daniel James White, taking the first 2 letters from my forenames = DJ
  • Chalky came from the fact that my surname is White and that Chalk is very often white!

The DJ part sort of faded away a number of years ago so the tendency nowadays is that I’m just called Chalky.

Computers:

Yes, I admit it, I am a bit of a computer geek. I was shown how to use an Acorn Archimedes by my father (who used to work for Acorn) at the age of 3/4 and I haven’t really stopped since.

Technology has always interested me and I like to get a hold of as much as I possibly can.

I am always willing to help others with their computing problems and I always aim to explain things in a way that the person will understand. I don’t try and blind people with science and talk at them.

Music:

Music is a big part of my life, I can’t get enough of it. I like going to gigs and concerts. Although I don’t generally listen to Classical music on my iPod, I do really enjoy going to live classical concerts. I have a few ‘shameful’ artists on my Last.fm profile, but I go by what something sounds like rather than who it is by. They have helped shape me into the person that I am today, maybe that explains a few things….!
