I was never a big fan of blogs. And I'd never think I'd actually start one.
Anyway, the reason I hopped on is simple. I'm a software engineer who likes to tinker with computers. This quite naturally means I like free software. Specifically, I enjoy fiddling with linux, doing all kinds of odd things with it. I sometimes manage to run into things that I'm not able to find good answers to and figure out stuff in the process. Up to now, the results of my tinkering were staying locked up in my installation of Zim. But I was thinking that maybe someone else might find them useful too.
So this is the premise. Let's see how this evolves.
