Welcome to Tony's Notebook

What's this site about?

Yet another boring technical blog?

I hope not. But sadly, it probably is...

So what's it all about?

Over the years I found that when a problem came up, I would figure out how to solve it, and then promptly forget what I did. This became quite annoying when the same problems kept cropping up. So in 2017 I decided to start this blog as a way to capture things that I learned over time. I just need to keep reminding myself to write up the bits and bobs that I learn along the way.

I've also written some thoughts on my experiences much further back in my career, in the hope that some of them may be vaguely interesting, or even mildly entertaining.

I addition to my day job as a technical writer, I've picked up "odds and ends" of programming work over the years, originally in C and Java and more recently in Python. I've also been roped into other interesting (and quite possibly nefarious) "projects" too - and they have not always been successful I might add!


And here's me being photo-bombed by a mermaid:
