More about me...

You may have guessed I'm a bit of a geek.

I'm a few other things too, all of them a bit geeky in a way now that I think about it.  That's life I suppose...

  1. Kites are cool.  I started with sport kites, the ones like miniature hangliders, but these days I spend more time kite-landboarding and kitesurfing.

  2. Books are cool.  I've got lots of books.  Too many, if you speak to my girlfriend, not enough as far as I'm concerned.  I work in a bookshop, it's a handy outlet that quite probably stops my better half murdering me.  I also use my Cool Science Books blog as a bit of a vent.

  3. I like messing about with software, specifically open source stuff.  I run Linux, code bits of php/mysql and am trying to get to grips with Blender - here's a few short demos of the stuff I'm messing around with.  I particularly like the physics engine.
