Introduction

I've worked at some places you may have heard of, and others you may not have: <list of companies>. I could say I focus on <>, all of which is true, but I like to think I work on whatever is necessary to make a company successful.

Notepad, thoughts out loud, learning in public, misunderstandings, mistakes. undiluted opinions. I'm <>, an itinerant developer. I live (and try to work in) <> on the south coast of England. Please don't mistake me for an expert in anything. I love technology and programming, but make no claims to be any good at it. Much of what you read here may be poorly thought out, wrong, or just plain dangerous.

FTC Disclaimer

From http://dmad.com/disclosure/:

Why hello there. Welcome to my sexy disclosure policy.

I think in general advertising sucks so I won’t be putting many ads on the site. I will however add affiliate links to some products I recommend so if you end up clicking them, I will sometimes get a small cut of the action.

I’m not an asshat so I only recommend things I have used (or vary rarely if I haven’t then I’d at least want to buy if I had the chance. Sometimes that Aston Martin DBS falls outside of my budget, dammit).

Let me rephrase that in “scary FTC talk” that I ripped off from a guy who ripped it off another guy:

Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links on this site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials.”
