I live in Wakefield, after moving from my home-town of Bolton. I have a keen interest in computers and technology, particularly networking and programming. My hobbies and interests include football (both playing and watching), astronomy, and some cycling (when I get chance). I also enjoy reading a variety of books, cartography, and astronomy.
For many years, I’ve maintained a strong interest in Free Software, and other projects around freedom, such as Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap.
Some of my thoughts and experiences on swimming. I used to be a regular swimmer for Bolton Swimming Club when I was younger.
I maintain a collection of books that I’ve read on this page.
I also maintain a website detailing releases of upcoming television shows to DVD and Blu-ray. You can find it at tvshowreleases.co.uk. Updates are usually made three or four times a week.
One of the biggest projects I have worked on resides at learngtk.org. The site contains a programming tutorial for PyGTK, and a huge number of examples.
