About Me

Ray McCarthy is the pseudonym used for my novels. Though I really am called Ray and my Great Grandmother was Jane McCarthy.  I have been ‘Online’ since 1981 (Prestel and 300 bbs) and using email since 1987. Using the modern Internet via an ISP and browsing Websites using a server at home as ‘Gateway’ since 1994 approximately. In 1994 a web page was ‘written’ using Notepad text editor and uploaded at 9,600 to 14.4k bps. Later we got 128 k ISDN, though in 1998 we moved house and the phone line deteriorated to about 19.2k. In late 2005 we got broadband at home.  I used broadband since early 2002 in work as an upgrade from 128k ISDN.
