Ah yes, the introductory ramble; the part that no-one ever reads. Oh well, at least I will be able to refer to it myself if I forget what this blog is supposed to be about.

Firstly, a little bit about me: I’m a developer and I work on financial software (hi!) Until recently, my tools of choice were C++, Perl and Apache. I’m still paid to work with the first two. For a number of reasons I’m not particularly enamoured of C++ anymore (damn useless tools) and Perl is also losing its shine for me. Apache is still awesome though! I may write more about why later but for now it is not important.

I have a couple of ideas for series that I am going to publish here. The first is going to be about customising Emacs using elisp. The second will be about setting up a blog. I will be attempting to drum up a few readers as feedback is nice. Primarily though, it is going to be for the purposes of getting my notes in one place. I frequently forget how I did something so if that happens in future I will simply be able to refer to my blog.

That’s it for now…
