Quitting Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB6 programming and ASP development, maintaining a multitude of sites from http://www.cuasp.co.co.uk, his "work" site, to http://www.atomicwise.com, a selection of his writings on music and art. He now divides his time between being a human punchbag for his 29-month-old son Nye, composing electronic sounds on bits of dilapidated old keyboards for his music project Open E, and tutoring his cats in the art of peaceful co-existence, and not violently mugging each other on the stairs.
