On this blog I happily talk about techy, geeky and (for me) fun stuff. I will be talking about all the problems / challenges I find in my day to day job, with examples, and how I have fixed those things. And maybe some of my 3D printing projects.

If you are having problems with your site, or need some work done, do not hesitate to contact me for a quick chat.

If calling during work hours leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I can!
