You seem to have found my web blog/place I moan about tech/occasionally useful site thing!
Hi there! I'm Shane and I'm a web developer based in Nottingham, England. That's me on the right (the guy in the hat, not the 7 year old girl - that's my daughter).
I built this site as a fun side project in my spare time. I enjoy writing tutorials and tech related articles so that's mostly what you'll find here.
I'm always looking for fun projects to get involved in and I'd love to get more involved in open source. If you have an open source project and would like an extra pair of hands, please do let me know!
Enjoy the site!
