Robert started life as a comparatively fast sperm. At age 13, no longer a sperm, he got his first computer and broke it. He has spent much of his adult life devoted to helping others not to break computers; first as an IT Pro and now as a senior software developer.

His work in helping others has earned him numerous Microsoft ALM MVP awards in the past and many opportunities to speak at major software developer events.

He is most proud of his son. His website is www.sadev.co.za and can also be found on Twitter.

comment Polo TDI 2004 - intermittent power, smoke, turbo issue
Pretty damn close to what the problem was. Took it in eventually and it was some sort of boost leak but not from a pipe, and only showed up once the car got hot. In addition the leak also allowed oil in which killed the internals of the turbo so ended up having the entire internals of the turbo replaced to solve it.
