Geek Stuff!

Here you will find various geeky things that don't really belong anywhere else...

I am a Pebble smartwatch developer - which is a bit weird, given it's in C... Luckily the timeline has given me a way to use PHP for most of the work. My favourite Pebble is the Pebble Time black - although the Round is growing on me. I haven't used the Time Steel enough to know if I'd prefer it or not.

I am a huge fan of the IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad. I believe that they are the best laptops for anyone who is serious about a laptop that does more than just look flashy. They are powerful, reliable, well built, and (apart from a few minor design stupidities in some models) they have a nice subtle charm about their appearance.

I also believe that Ubuntu is the best operating system, ever. Ok, it's not good for some things, but it's very good for many things - and if you're a web developer, I think you're wasting your time using something else.
