Technology Tales

Adventures & experiences in contemporary technology

New year, new blog

17th January 2007

Hello and welcome.

This may be the first time that you encountered me in cyberspace but this is not my first foray into the blogosphere: that is HennessyBlog. So why the new blog then? The reason is that I like the idea of somewhere to mull over computer technology, both new and old. And HennessyBlog is already devoted to the enjoyment of the great outdoors matters else and I do not want to dilute that focus. While a technology fan, I also like going walking in the countryside and visiting interesting towns and cities, capturing any views encountered with my camera. From these photos, I have compiled my online photo gallery and HennessyBlog also features news of updates to this.

So there you have it: this is going to be my technology blog. I do build my own PC’s so references to computer hardware may appear from time to time. Even so, I am more of a software person and programming is a love of mine. Currently, we also are going through a period where there are a lot of new software releases: who cannot have heard of the forthcoming versions of Windows and Office? I have been taking a look at some of these. Like anyone interested in computer technology, the Internet is also a big interest of mine, not least because I have been dabbling in web development for most of the last 10 years. I deliberately say development because, although I can probably do passable website interfaces, I am more technically adept than artistically gifted. I did mention programming earlier: this pays my bills so it may feature at some point.
