Fruit is a better view

So for those of you that do not know I recently switched from PC to Mac.

3 Years ago I would have laughed if anyone would have told me I would be doing this. Yeh, my first *real* programming experience was on Mac (albeit with Java as the language of choice), and I have used Mac’s in my past, but moving from Windows to Mac. Pah!

Oh my word, am I glad I did. In the words of John Newton “I was blind but now I see”: The whole computer experience is not meant to be this good is it? Where are the crashes, the hangs and those hilariously cryptic messages (yes many of them are non-understandable by geeks too)…

Ahhh British optimism.


At long last…

Wow. Well here it is. My Blog…
This is something that has been on my todo list for at least a couple of years now. I was looking for that perfect domain name… I registered a couple of years ago at my lovely wife’s bequest, but somehow never actually got around to doing anything with it. Well, anything usefull 🙂

Anyway, my buddy and colleague Rob has always been pushing me to get this started, an he helped me choose the domain name. So Cheers Rob!
