About me

This is the personal website of Chris Tye.

I’ve been online for years. I used to go on local bulletin boards, with an Amiga 500 and a Supramodem 2400+. If you lived in Hull in the 1990’s, chances are you read my messages on Metnet, or Odyssey, or one of the other numerous Hull BBS’s in those days. Since those days, I’ve been a regular on the internet, and I’ve watched it grow to what it is today, from dial-up to broadband.

I work for a retail bank, via Kwik Save, Iceland and a company in Hull that used to sell guttering. Since I finished 6th form in 1991, I’ve achieved an HND in Computing, a GCSE (2008) in Geology, a Distinction in a Foundation Diploma in Fine Art, and a BA(Hons) in Fine Art (whilst studying part time) at Craven College in Skipton. I’ve not finished; as of 2020, I’m studying MA Art History with the Open University.

I’m originally from Hull, I’ve ended up living near Bedale in North Yorkshire, I’m married but never had kids (through choice), and life’s OK, but frankly could be a whole lot better with a lottery win!

Thanks for dropping by my website; hopefully it’ll keep you interested for a bit.
