Welcome, dear reader. Like many folks who keep an on-line journal, I eventally decided to split off my geeky alter-ego from the traditional blog. So now I have this page here, for all that's techy in my life, and another page with stories about cats, gardening, friends, and SWMBO.
Let me introduce myself. My job title is "Senior Network Development and Support Officer", and I work for the University of Oxford. In plain English, it means that I co-admin a lot of Cisco kit, some DNS/DHCP/SMTP/RADIUS/etc servers, and write a ton of Perl, along with my colleagues Robin and Andy. I guess my two geeky loves are IP networks, and Perl
As we all know, it's Perl that glues the Cisco/DNS/etc bits together, and that's what I want to write about here. I hope the things I do will prove interesting, and from time to time I'll throw in something from home (MythTV being an example).
