Welcome to my website!

This site was started on 28th March 2007.  It’s still very much under construction, but I’m adding more content all the time...

My website is divided into three main sections: software, music and other stuff.  You can also view a site map of my website, contact me, or send me a donation for one of my free software applications.



Software (image generated by FractalNet)

One of my main interests is software engineering, and in my spare time I enjoy creating my own software.  My most well-known project is my Guitar Chord Explorer, which has had over 140,000 visitors so far, and has received some positive feedback.

Other projects that you can use for free include: My other projects include:

Music

I’ve been playing the piano since school, and the acoustic guitar since 2002.  I’ve created some beatless ambient music under the name of Slowspace, and in 2005, I recorded my first amateur album, The Eternal Realm.  I’ve also recorded some beatless ambient mixes.

In 2007 and 2008, I participated in the professional recording of two albums with The Newsong Group (acoustic guitar and tenor vocals).  I’ve composed some songs in GarageBand, and I’ve created some drum & bass tracks, mixes and remixes under the name of DJ Banana.



Other stuff

I’ve created Conway’s Game of Life: An Illustrated Guide and a small collection of useful AppleScripts, and I’m currently developing various TV episode guides and a guide to the Mac OS X Terminal.

You can view some photos and videos of “Foxy” (a friendly fox who visits our back garden every day ), and see how I memorised Pi to 100 decimal places.  I’m also building a collection of links to useful or interesting webpages.

Wiki contributions

I’ve been a member of Wikipedia since November 2006.  I’ve started several articles, and made over 400 edits so far.  I created the articles (1 2 3 4 5) about the ambient music artist SleepResearch_Facility, who then thanked me in the booklet of his latest album, Deep_Frieze (click here to see my name in the booklet).  I’ve also made major contributions to the Journey into Space article, since I’m a big fan of this 1950s radio show.  For more info, visit my user page.

A favourite quotation

Start quote Everyone has the right to doubt everything as often as he pleases, and the duty to do it at least once.  No way of looking at things is too sacred to be reconsidered.  No way of doing things is beyond improvement. End quote
Edward de BonoThe Use of Lateral Thinking, Chapter 5
