I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

I think the story behind how I got this is pretty cool.. I posted a pic of
my poor broken TH-55 here

And promptly having cathartically dealt with my loss through moblog moved
on. Ages later I got an Email from this bloke, Sett, from Cal-Tech Uni.
He also had a broken TH-55, and being a techie sort asked if there was a way
we could trade, that way he could salvage mine for spare parts. I was like,
sure, what do you have?

His girl worked on the Mars Rover Mission, and this is the model of same.
For some reason this makes me feel so good about the way things work now the
net's around, that someone so randomply could make me so happy.

The book/Scottish gift shop that I worked in has laser-etched blocks with Edinburgh Castle in them, and some LED base-units to stand them on.

But the Mars Rover - that's impressive!
