Back to Top is my personal website with no affiliation or connection to any organisation or company. Therefore, any comments, articles, observations, beliefs or views expressed here are not the views of any organisation or company, and they might not even reflect the views of feelings of the author depending on my mood at the time.

Please be aware that I hold copyright on all images and content on this site unless stated otherwise, which means you cannot use them for any reason without permission. This does not mean it’s ok for you to use something if it’s for a good cause, or if it’s non-commercial, or even for your mum. It means don’t use anything here without asking first.

Talking of images, for those interested, the banner image and logo are from a picture called ‘Formation Flying’ which I took at a kite festival on Southsea Common a few years ago. The full image is (or will be soon) on my Flickr page.

I’m a software engineer by trade, and have been playing with computers as a hobby for over 25 years. In addition to that I enjoy sailing when I can, badminton and football when fit, and photography when inspiration strikes. I love technology when it works and makes my life easier, and can’t abide things which don’t work like they should.

I hope you enjoy, on some level at least, what you find here and ask you to respect the fact that this is my little corner of the web. You might well disagree with things I write, or even be offended, and that’s ok. I cannot possibly know what any one individual might be able to take offence at, and so will be unable to avoid offending everybody. If you feel very strongly about something posted here then there are several options open to you, including not visiting this site any more, writing your own views on your own website, or even entering into sensible discussion about it. As you can tell, this is not a website which will pander to peoples hurt feelings or those who take offence – it is not against the law in the jurisdiction of this site to offend people (as a rule). That said, this website has no intention of stepping beyonds the bounds of law, and if you have a legitimate issue with anything posted here, please let us know and we can try to work it out like sensible adults.

Put simply, this is the my home on the web and though I welcome visitors of all kinds, I expect them to treat it as my home, and act accordingly.
