r3dux, on the 11th of June 2010, thinking about hats =P

Hi there!

If you’re wondering who I am, what I do, or whether you should you have any faith in anything I write on this site – then you’ve came to the right place!

I guess to start from the top, my name’s Al, I’m from Wales, and I’m a system/software engineer and university teacher. Or really, I was a system/software bod, and then I jacked it all in to move to Australia and get married to a great gal, and now I’m teaching at a local university and studying for my Ph.D on the creation of 3D objects using multi-modal interfaces.

I was raised on video games and coca-cola like so many of us, and I suppose I’ve used that initial love of gaming to push myself through the education system (gaining a B.Sc (Hons) in Computer Science, and a M.Sc in Multimedia in the process), which means that I can code in half a dozen languages and pull off Metsu Shoryukens first time at will* =P

For things I like, I guess music, gaming and coding (the more graphical oriented, the better) would be right at the top of the list, I love messing about with all kinds of tech stuff, reading, learning (and learning and learning and learning)…

The aim of this website is just to be an online repository of information and fun stuff – anything that makes me smile and/or might be useful to people. So if I code something up or if it takes me a number of hours to work something out, and I can write an article which outlines how to do whatever process and help other people out – then awesome! – mission accomplished, and if I ever need to repeat the process it’s documented. But if I just want to post pictures of kittens wearing hats then I’ll do that too – as this isn’t really a technical resource; it’s more like an online scrapbook. And if you find it useful or entertaining, then all the better =D


* = Except when I really need one. “At will” means “about 70% of the time”. Not a serviceable substitute for a loving, caring relationship.
