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.
