Mike Fendalton is your average incompetent, unlucky computer programmer, incapable of writing a working program, who hangs out at the pub and fails to get laid. So it's a major surprise to him when he is called upon to use his programming skills to rescue an entire planet from financial ruin...
"Saving Romford" is the perfect irreverent gift for any broad-minded person in the computer industry
"Saving Romford" is the tale of an incompetent computer programmer whose main joys in life are going to the pub and, on rare occasions, finding a woman. Mike Fendalton puts up with being the person most likely to be called in the middle of the night to fix a broken system and takes it all in his rather inept stride.
Amazingly, he is erroneously identified as a computer whizz by the inhabitants of a distant planet who decide he is the ideal person to fix their defence system which is destroying the planet's budget.
"Saving Romford" is sometimes (mostly?) funny with just the occasional reflection on earlier screw-ups. The content is mildly "adult" in nature but nothing too lurid - just don't buy it for the vicar.
