New year, new blog

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.
