What is the all about?

Perhaps you think this website is about me or that I think the world  needs to listen to what I have to say. Not so or more precisely, THIS  website is about something else entirely.

As I get older I find my memory is not what it was; the fine detail  needed to tweak some configuration file or some idiom needed for a  quickie script becomes stubbornly evasive and invisible. On top of that,  there are times when I google for answers to some of life's  irritations, find a plausible solution only to  discover that barely 24  hours later, google itself seems to have forgotten all about the magic  answer. If I had learned the habit of taking notes and documenting my  entire life, these sort of problems would not be an issue at all.

But I didn't, so they are. Faced with an information overload, these  essential tit-bits are the difference between letting chaos reign and  imagining that

I am in control

With all this technology, the answer was easy: create a blog where I can store this trivia for safe-keeping.

And this is it.

Of course, a useful side-effect is that the entire world gets to  share it as well. This is probably a good thing; quite often the  solution to problems I have been searching for do not fit neatly into a  convenient or obvious search term so my contributions to the  global network are a few well chosen words to help you find the answer  to the problems I managed to figure out but the Interweb preferred to  conceal from both of us - till now.

Good luck with your own problem swatting.
