Introduction Hi, I am Jim Rippon. I am a father of three, and step-father of one :) I work in IT as I have done for the past 15 years or more. I am a computer geek, wanna-be mini enthusiast (if only I had the time) and most recently I'm becoming a biker (of the motorcycle kind) - at least for my 2.5 mile round trip to the station each day ;) Help me keep my inbox clean - and find out how to implement cloud spam filtering for yourself.
