About The Site

There are so many different “flavors” of Technology out there today. This is just a blog I decided to make to help create a presence for myself online as well as to present a simple online CV showing a few of my skillsets and interests. This blog documents my experiences of using, breaking, and fixing all sorts of things technology-related; Sometimes just for fun and sometimes professionally. I’ll let you process your way thru these bits – one byte at a time – and figure out which is which posts are actually useful. One last important note: All views expressed in this blog are my own!
