So after many years of resisting, I’ve started a blog. Not because I believe I have anything interesting to say or I think I need to reach out to people, but because it will form part of my extended memory.

Being a programmer requires me to remember so many tidbits of information it is crazy. The amount of obscure parcels of info relating to coding, configuration and hacks I have floating around my brain is hard to manage. Invariably, when you need to do this, your brain at some point will spring a leak and as new information comes in, somewhere in the haze something fades out of memory.

This blog is an attempt to keep some of these tidbits of information where I can find them, since my brain won’t agree to store them forever.
