Hi, I'm Martin and I write software. I also have a hell of a lot of stuff going through my head with thoughts and opinions on many things. Unfortunately, in this whole jumble I often fail to articulate my point of view very well. This blog is an attempt to rectify that by trying to put all my thoughts on various subjects down in one place. If you want to get in touch, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to my new personal blog. I've decided that I need a place to write my thoughts down, rather than spewing them over twitter or IM or other more realtime forms of communication where my hands type faster than my brain works.
And before you say anything, I know that there is no X, Y or Z. I'm running on a custom blogging app written using Django. I thought that this would be as good a project as any to learn Django with. There are some things that I haven't got round to yet (RSS feeds), some things I don't need quite yet (pagination) and some things I'm just not adding (comments).
Keep an eye out for new posts as I plan to write a lot of stuff up on here very soon and possibly transfer some posts from my old, now-defunct personal blog. Hopefully it will be interesting.
