This website is assembled by myself using WordPress, a number of plugins, and some custom adjustments here and there.
What will I be writing about, you ask? Well, the short answer is whatever I feel like. Which most likely will be problems I have solved, things I have discovered, things that amuse me, things I ponder upon, books I read, major things happening in my life, et cetera. The topics will for the most part be in the software development category, however, since I will be writing about whatever I feel like, other interests of mine will also probably come up once in a while. For example general computer stuff not related to programming, juggling, photography and the greater questions about life.
If you are curious about the site title and tagline, this blog post might clear some things up.
