About The Site
This site has been built using the Django Framework.
There's a joke in the Django community that the very first thing a deveoper duils with the framework is a blogging application. Who am I to break this trend ;) There's no commenting. Because I had a blogspot blog and nobody ever commented on that, so I decided not to bother. There's a Django app that I might get around to installing one day. But not today.
It's all hand-rolled, not because this is the right thing to do, but because it was a learning exercise.

If you find a bug, be a love and let me know. Ta.
Some bits & pieces
On the front end I'm using (and heartily recommending):
- YUI Font Reset CSS
I'm also using the TinyMCE WYSIWYG plug-in for my admin, but it's glitchy as hell and I can't find my way to recommending it. Sorry!
It's hosted by the fellas at WebFaction (my account name is 'gareth53', if you wanna quote me as a referrer). I did fancy hosting it in the UK and I looked at Mampi Hosting, but, in the end, I went down the tried and trusted (and cheap!) path.
DjangoFriendly.com was instrumental in the process of shopping around.
I'm a developer living and working in London, UK. This site is an amalgamation of all the stuff I'm doing on the web - writings, bookmarkings, photos, podcasts, twitterings and so on...
