What's the purpose of this blog? It's to act as a compendium of all the neat little tricks and tips I garner in my day-to-day life as a software engineer and Linux sysadmin—the sort of silly things that can hold you up for hours while Googling for an answer. Maybe some of these will be common knowledge. All I know is that they will have been problems I have encountered. I might also throw up a few random mathematical musings (recreational mathematics is one of my hobbies, although I'm not very good at it). Where appropriate I'll be providing code listings, too. I don't know how often I'll be posting—probably as and when I encounter a new handy hint. I normally blog over at the Libertarian/Conservative Daily Pundit, whose creator, William T. Quick, was the guy who coined the term 'blogosphere'.
