Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.


For information on building enterprise applications easliy, delve into the XActLib project documentation (although note that I'm in the process of moving the documentation that goes with it, off of BitBucket to here so it will be a bit disruptive for a while…sorry about that).


To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.


Or simply read the Blog: below to watch me faff about trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

Square Root

To put it another way; after a lifetime of buying enough tickets to wallpaper a house, you're still 99.88 per cent guaranteed to lose.
