This is just a boring page for the odd bit of useful stuff. Insanity may be provided on request.

A freelance technical consultant and author by profession, I am a kind of perpetual Linux n00b. Decades of experience have unearthed phobias for vi, emacs, grep, sed, awk, even cat. I can just about cope with telnet, ls, mkdir, rm, ftp and the like, but I prefer Gedit and ROX cos I don't have to keep looking up all those extensions and switches I can never remember (nothing to do with WYSIWYG, apart maybe from drag-and-drop, just that the world of extensions and switches is so horrible).

My other pet hate is the utter unrelated-ness in terms of grammar and syntax of (X)HTML, CSS, javascript, PHP/ASP/JSP/ and SQL. Oh, for a single language to write a whole web application in!

Other interests:

  • Polyhedra (http://www.steelpillow.com/polyhedra/index.htm).
  • Philosophy - especially of self, science and religion.

Pages for creation

The create this page option doesn't appear when it should. So I add new pages here: then, clicking on the link allows me to edit/save, (i.e. create) it. <<<''shudder''>>>

Template:highlight produces this: highlighted text
