Hello! Welcome to my wee, constantly evolving, digital space.

I'm currently in the process of writing scripts to integrate my GoToSocial account into the site and once the current technology stack permits, will be adding cactus comments. So there may be some minor disruptions.

If you are interested in keeping in touch then there are various contact options under my photo on the right, and if you just want to follow my updates then please click on the feeds link at the top and copy your preferred feed link into your RSS reader of preference.. not sure what RSS is?
