Yes this is me.


This site represents the ramblings and a journey of learning for me, this is my place sometimes a dumping ground sometimes a fully documented howto so i dont forget, you’re welcome to use whatever you like, and if perhaps something was of interest or use … why not say “hello”

To learn, to expand knowledge to experience is the reason for living, the day i stop learning, stop pushing the boundaries of my knowledge is the time to end it.

What else do you need?
