About

He has had training and experience at Volunteer radio stations. He has trained at a Sydney Voiceover school.

A self-confessed geek, Jason Oakley was born in NSW, Australia in 1971 and has been on the internet since around 1993.

Jason started on the internet with a 28.8k modem and an expensive $5/hr account at OzEmail ISP (now pwned by iiNet).

He’s been a member of the Efnet IRC community since joining the Internet and has rarely been offline. As of 2006 he hardly goes on IRC at all, mostly living on Twitter and on Facebook.

Tech shows Jason has been involved with: The Obsidian Loft Minecraft podcast, The Old Fart GeeksAussie Tech Heads, Tech Webcast and Tech Talk Radio.

Programming is one of his loves and he prides himself in having done some programming in many languages (some you may call scripting) such as: C, Perl, PHP, Bash among others. He wrote a popular game called “Quirl” for the Palm OS. Later, an updated version named “Quirl:Christmas Edition” was created, using the same gameplay but with Christmas graphics and sound effects along with a Christmas tune in the background.

In the 2000s, he dabbled in PHP from time to time and has written a plugin for the blog application WordPress. The plugin is called “RndImgDisplayer” and displays random images in the WordPress sidebar, automatically calculating width, height and supplying an Alt tag (or alternatively, for Firefox plain text under the image).

In 2013, he developed the popular Minecraft game plugin called “Insanity Run” in Java. This is a Temple Run themed game based inside the Minecraft world.  It has had over 10,700 downloads (as of August 2017).

In 2015, he gained an awesome Work-From-Home job fighting spam on the internet.

In 2016, he bought a home to live in and, in 2017 joined up to the local Great Lakes FM radio station where he hosts the Retro Regeneration show!
