You may be wondering why I’m doing this. I suppose there’s two main reasons:

Firstly, I want to learn new web skills, so I designed/wrote all the back-end stuff for this bit of the site myself using a combination of PHP and MySQL (web scripting language and open-source database thingy respectively). Well, with the new economy being what it isn’t these days, you’ve got to keep an eye on the old CV. At the time of writing it’s not quite finished (and it is also not linked from anywhere else on the Paste site, as I want to get things right before exposing my innermost thoughts to a wider audience).

The second, and far more important, reason is that, after a year of failing to write anything substantial, I wanted to force myself to write on a regular basis, and this seemed like a good way to do it.
