Lots of people are doing this.

2011: Living in a modest mid-terraced house in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, having recently moved in with julia_winolj. Self-employed by ND2 Ltd (formerly part of NDS Ltd), the company of which I'm sole director -- sole anything, in fact. There's very little work to be had.

2001: Living in a modest mid-terraced house in Bracknell, Berkshire, having married my then wife Anne about four years previously. Employed as a computer network engineer by NDS Ltd, a computer consultancy with three or four people, depending on how you count us.

1991: Living in a one-bedroomed back-to-back house (one of four one-bedroomed houses built in the footprint of what ought to be a conventional four-bedroomed house) in Feltham, in the west of London. Living on my own, but the house is co-owned with my brother who is living and working in Germany. Working as a Unix sysadmin for a small laboratory equipment supply house.

1981: Living with my parents and four brothers in a rambling five-bedroomed semi-detached house in Hanworth, in the west of London. At school in Barnes, preparing for O-levels. There are a succession of short-term pets, depending on what the A-level biology students will be dissecting later that term.

1971: Living with the same people in the same house, only it's marginally less rambling with only three bedrooms.

This post is a nonsense. It takes no account of the huge changes that take place between each of these snapshots.
