This is to introduce myself, Patrick O'Beirne.
I have been joined to this list by Clement Dzidonu of Trinity College
Dublin. I am working with him and Professor Gordon Foster on the TRINET
project which aims to provide low-cost e-mail facilities to institutions in
developing countries through Low-Earth-Orbiting satellites such as those
used by VITA (Volunteers in Technical Assistance). You can read more about
the TRINET project on our Web page:
I am a computer consultant and software developer based in the South-East of
Ireland. My interests are Clipper, Software Quality, and quite a few other
things. You can read about them (and follow a link to my biography if you
want all the details) at:
Specifically, my role here is to assist TRINET in setting up gateway and
other facilities, and in answering any technical questions I can about PC
applications from African users.
Best wishes to all participants in this study.
