Callum is a quiet Scottish lad who likes playing about with his "projects". He does not dally far from techie sites, has never used Facebook or MSN. However he and his colleagues have become fascinated by TheSpoof.com
Reading spoofs by some brilliant writers brightens his day. But he is concerned.
"I taught that woman all she knows about computers. All the tricks of the trade, shortcuts, fixes, you name it, I taught my mum everything" he said. "But now, what is she doing, writing spoofs and telling the world about me. I'm not good and coming forward then she sticks me on a site where the whole world can read about me".
Callum, blames his mum and her chum in Canada who he and his colleagues follow closely on TheSpoof.com.
Admitting that he never knows what they will come up with next he often hides himself away at work under the pretext of working on serious technical problems. In his own way he is proud but seriously thinks they should stick to proper granny stuff like cooking and knitting sites. He hopes it is a passing phase, as does TheSpoof,com editor and many other writers, but he confesses to giving his mum the tools to do the job and what's done is done.
His father only wants a decent meal.
