Thank you for your curiosity, it’s a value that is always highly valued.
ZOIS itself is a small consultancy specialising in large UNIX and Java based On-Line Transaction Processing systems. We would encourage you to read the papers on the
ZOIS public web-site. They give more detailed information on what we do.
ZOIS branched out into a secondary vehicle for the exploration of Government funded Public Employment web-sites. Indignation and the occasional bit of positive feedback resulted in a not-unappreciated ‘better’ version of an official UK one. This has since been shutdown and replaced by a simpler Archive, which can be used for data-mining. The majority of posts in the Blog relate to this work, and a bit of whimsy provoked by it.
The Blog is largely been written by Martin Sullivan. He’s a some-time computer programmer, living in the quaintly named town of Cockermouth in north-west England. You can send feedback on this site to him personally via e-mail, or by leaving a comment.
Martin is currently on a health sabbatical, but is interested in the odd bit of pro-bono work by the way of therapeutic recovery. So, if you’ve anything that he can tackle on a non-commercial basis from his base in Cockermouth please let him know. Unsurprisingly, he’s particularly interest in biology, again, and the application of computing to it.
