About Phil Donnelly.

Welcome to my Zone

This website is for your viewing if you would like to know more about me, it's also a domain linked to my email address because I like to be a little different and every professional should have one.
So my email address is me at this domain name. If you have an online presence, sell online, or provide a local service then you know you should have an online presence. And it's definitely not reliant on any Social Network service, so I choose the content.

This website has and will create problems for me, and I will overcome the problems, by doing so I learn, and so I enjoy problems.

There's lots more content to bring to this site, a lot so it's going to evolve and grow, so please check back one day. One day! In other words I don't want to bore you or you may leave.

25 years in Manufacturing with knowledge of MRP, Production Planning and Logistics. 10 years of working with SQL databases, 8 years of website development. A problem solver, a solution provider, a people person and a creative individual with a great range of knowldge and skills. 20 years of working in an IT environment using SQL, working with Oracle and B.I Systems. Experience of JQuery, Javascript, HTML, CSS, AJAX, JSON and more.

I'm also a hands on person, my hobbies include Carpentry, Building, Interior Design, Decor as well as Technology and Photography.

IT Systems

Tech Services

My experience includes all aspects of Information Technology, there really isn't one aspect of IT that I haven't had some involvement in as long as we aren't talking about specific industries. So, I've been an IT Engineer, a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, System Analyst, SQL DBA (Oracle/SQLServer), UNIX Admin (Yep! I've done my CHMOD along with my GREP)., Desktop Support, Network Installations (TCP/IP, DHCP and IP addressing), Wireless Terminal project for reporting manufacturing and stock movements. Experience of a range of Web technologies. A Project manager and Team Leader. Business Objects, Data Warehousing and even some SAP.

Web Design and Development Software pages and apps.

I installed the FIRST wireless network into a Multimillion pound Nokia Factory in 2000

I build and fix PC's. And I have done for 25 years.


I'm a techie, yep, I love technology. If I don't know how something works I find out. If I need a solution I generally find one.
Cars, that's another of my subjects, noisy cars and electric bikes. Do I know where the flywheel goes? Yes, what a Turbo does? Yes. Or even your cylinder sleeve.
Photography was my first love, it was once simple and an art. Take a photo, head off to the lab, develop the film, run to the enlarger and create your image. I hasten to add I was good at it. I still have a small range of film cameras with film in. You could always do some manipulation of the finished print but nothing like to the extent you can do today. Now you need software and on this site I talk about or list the best pieces of free photo technology or web based services. If you are really serious though you'll need Photoshop products.
One thing I've learnt over the years is not to dismiss a photo, with digital offering such large images you can often find something interesting in a very big photograph. Finding it is the job of the photographer. Framing it is also the job of the photographer.
Computers and me, I like software, it makes things happen.
And then there are Websites, that was a whole new bunch of technologies which I decided to master, just for the hell of it plus, you never know, one days perhaps.
My Twitter feed link. I've been using Twitter for a long time now so I know it exceptionally well. I have 3 Twitter accounts. This is the id I've decided to use with my website.

This site is coded on my Desktop and uploaded to Fasthosts. I use Sublime (TXT EDITOR), Wampserver(APACHE Web server) and WinSCP (FTP).

So I'm a Coder, Techie, Engineer, Photographer and would be Builder.

But I'm a whole lot more. Many years as a manager in manufacturing, logistics and I.C.T to add to all that

Phillip Donnelly started his career path in the 70's as a trainee photographer which took him into Packaging development and design, then Manufacturing Information Technology, helping get your mobile phone to you and a biscuit with your tea.

Besides being an expert with MRP (Materials Requirement Planning) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems with over 10 years sales, manufacturing and warehousing technology systems experience I know my way around them all. Basicly they carry out the same function, they just look different.


This bit is boring -: My experience includes all aspects of Information Technology, there really isn't one aspect of IT that I haven't had some involvement in as long as we aren't talking about specific industries. So, I've been an IT Engineer, a Business Analyst, Data Analyst, System Analyst, SQL DBA (Oracle/SQLServer), UNIX Admin (Yep! I've done my CHMOD along with my GREP)., BI administrator, designer and trainer, a Desktop Support engineer, Network Installations (TCP/IP, DHCP and IP addressing), Wireless Terminal project for reporting manufacturing and stock movements. Experience of a range of Web technologies. A Project manager and Team Leader. Business Objects, ETL, ERP, Data Warehousing and even some SAP.

Phillip Donnelly installed the FIRST wireless network into a Multimillion pound Nokia UK Factory in 2000.

Cars -: More interesting. I've rebuilt a few engines, broken some too, wrecked a car or two and rebuilt a few from the mundane to the more mundane. All I really want in my Christmas stocking is a Mustang, a 1965 V8 brute, and an electric bike, like a Harley Davidson LiveWire Motorcycle. My car manages 0-60 in 6 seconds and that's fast enough for the highway so how about a bike you really need to hang on to and 0-60 mph in 3 seconds, people will hear you laugh.

"In the early days of Colour Photography it was Photography for magazine advertisments and packaging, today the same service is required but now it's Photography for website production, advertising and still packaging."

Responsive Websites

I can code too! HTML, HTML5, CSS, Java, SQL. Software in use includes WampServer, MySQL, JSON and Ajax. Including SEO.

I've done a fair amount of work with SEO in recent years, it's not as difficult as some may think. It is all about descriptions, headings, contents and links. But what I really like doing is selling, getting out there and talking about the things I really enjoy living with or doing which hopefully gives me an income too.
