f you are seeing this you are an early visitor to this site so understand please that it is still very much a work in progress. I am building this web site from scratch because for me that is where the real joy lies, making a computer do something I want it to do. What you see here is just the excuse I need to spend hours creating the content management framework behind it. As I said above, I have been in IT for 30 plus years and was lucky enough to do work I loved. Now I get to love the work I do here so the joy lives on.
Besides my ramblings on topics of interest to me I will also be posting photos I have taken. I have always enjoyed photography and now that digital images have supplanted film, the merger of tech and images has caused a re-awakening.

While I have made some progress until I get things back on track the content here will be slow to change :-( wish me luck

This is where I will add my thoughts to the volumes of thoughts by others on all things tech that I am interested inRead On
As time goes on I hope to have enough to warrant listing updates here to make it easier for the return visitor. Until then it is a place holder and a constant reminder that I have promised more...
I have decided to incorporate a gallery provided by Adobe Lightroom using creative cloud. There are now several collections of photos out there so please click thru to enjoy them all.
