Taking a break

From September 1st, after nearly 20 years as a freelance developer (during which I’ve also been working full-time), I’ll be taking a well-deserved break and accepting no further web development commissions. I’m hoping this will allow me time to focus on other interests and explore new avenues. Many, many thanks to everyone I’ve worked with and who’ve supported me over the years.

I’m still here!

I haven’t had much news to post here in recent months, but I just wanted to add a quick note to say that I am still here and busy as ever – mainly working on WordPress themes in a third-party guise, but also managing a migration from SharePoint 2010 to 2013 (involving lots of user hand-holding and training, and development of PowerShell scripts to export and import existing content).

My Notebook

There are 7 billion people on the planet, but fewer than 150 kakapo

The kakapo can only be found in New Zealand and every year countless people from around the world - including dozens of hard working volunteers - give their time and energy trying to save the world's only nocturnal flightless parrot from the brink of extinction. You can discover more about this extraordinary bird by watching this short clip from the BBC's South Pacific wildlife series.

To show my support for the Kakapo Recovery programme, I have recently adopted Marama.
