I'm Andrew.

This website has the the purpose of letting my folks and friends afar know what I'm doing and also giving me an excuse to play with a few web technologies. The guest book, java test pages and server test pages come and go depending on my enthusiasm. I just update it every now and then using notepad... and sometimes an old version of Dreamweaver.

I first built this website in Portland, Oregon, in 1999. Having just moved to the US, and rented a lovely house with Linda, I had unexpectantly become unemployed and was trying to ignore the fact that I was on an H1B visa and needed to get another job quickly, or be deported.

Sometime later, and after many adventures and I'm now based in Edinburgh. Scotland is a great place. Real home is probably Australia and maybe sometime I'll go back sometime. It's not as clear cut as it once was.

Even less idea now (July2015 update).

No idea, what with Brexit, Indyref 2...(Oct 2016 update).

And by default this is Linda's website too.

Whatever is mine, real or virtual, is also Linda's (and of course it goes without saying that whatever is Linda's is Linda's only).

Linda is not particularly interested in this website but she does use the internet for finding out the latest for finding news on quality Australian TV series such as 'Neighbors' and 'Water Rats'.

And CSI (Jan 2008 update).

And "The Mentallist" (Dec 2010 update).

And NCIS (Dec 2011 update). Actually, that's more Andrew, but I use Linda as an excuse.

And anything Scandi-noir. And BBC iPlayer seems well used, as does my tablet. And receipe and crafts websites get a seeing to. (July 2015 update).

And GOT (Dec 2016 update).
