In the Spotlight: djbsuffolk

Happy Friday everyone!

Here we go with our Spotlight Drum

He hasn't been around for so long but he has already become part of the family. Hug

Thanks for your fantastic contributions and advice @Anonymous !

So say hi and congratulations below to @Anonymous

 

Spotlight.jpg

Who are you?

My name is Dave and I live in Newmarket in Suffolk. You can see how I cleverly formlated a username from this!

How old are you?

I turn 50 in October this year.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a Havanese dog called Annie, she is 13 years old.

What can you contribute to the community?

Common sense!

What was your first mobile phone?

My first mobile was a Motorola Memphis on one2one pay as you go.

What is your current mobile phone?

I currently have a Sim free Samsung Galaxy A3 on a sim only pay monthly contract with O2.

What is network coverage like in your home and areas of commute?

Coverage in and around Newmarket is excellent, with 4G recently having been introduced. I go into Cambridge quite often and coverage there is equally good.

Where do you see the smartphone in 5 years?

Tough question. More technology improving the user experience as the devices become more powerful and I hope current battery research moves on quickly and comes to the consumer device.

What is the airspeed velocity of a sparrow?

I am currently coming to the end of the 2nd year of an Open University Physics and Maths degree so I will do the maths and let you know.

What was your favourite toy as a child?

I had a knitted rabbit my aunty made for me called it Freda – when my son was old enough I handed it on to him and he promptly lost it while out one day!

Apple or Samsung?

Samsung of course!

 

Feel free to ask him anything, sorry @Cleoriff not a cat lover but a dog lover!

Hi Rodney, good to know a bit more about you....I asked Trigger (unfortunately no longer with us to correct him) what your name was.

I like the way you post, always sensible and with complete impartiality. 

Good to have you as a member mate.

And of course if we are working out its velocity we also need to know it's direction, otherwise of course we are simply working out it's speed!
