Warren Toomey

I was born in Sydney, Australia. I got my Honours in Comp Sci in the '80s from U.N.E in Armidale, New South Wales. I then moved down to Canberra to work in a Distributed Operating Systems research group. Having completed a Ph.D in Internet network congestion, I lectured at ADFA for over a decade teaching Operating Systems, undergraduate and postgraduate Data Networks, Systems Administration and half of the first-year Computer Science and Information Systems courses.

In 2001 my fiancee Lynne and I moved up to the Gold Coast in Queensland, where I lectured at Bond Uni. My main subjects were Introduction to Programming, Data Networks and Network Security, Advanced Programming and Operating Systems.

In 2013 Bond, in their infinite wisdom, closed the IT School. After a year of turmoil I got a job with TAFE Queensland, where I now teach the Diploma of IT Networking. I've recertified my CCNA and I'm also delivering the Cisco Networking Academy material and getting prepared to deliver an IT degree here.

My computer related interests are operating systems and networks, the history and preservation of Unix. I have passed the OzTiVo baton on to other people and I've pottered around on other smaller projects.

Other interests are bushwalking, kayaking, movies, SF and science history books, music by Mike Oldfield and the Alan Parsons Project.

I played bass in a blues band until my Uni grades started plummeting. I can still bang out a song or two on my guitar as well.

If you're interested, you can download my resume. It's guaranteed to be out of date!
