I'm a sysadmin and this is my site. Posts are added irregularly and without assurance of quality or meaning. Everything here is primarily for my own use, but you are welcome to browse them.

If you'd like, you can send me an email at 9eb9e62bc375220a@piconet.co.uk. This address changes regularly to avoid webscraper spam. I'm not looking for a new job right now, so please don't email me if you're a recruiter.

Posts I've written can be found below, starting with the most recent at the top. Below those posts you'll find weird little music and art things that I've done (opus support is required).
