How I Ended Up In Namibia

Posted on July 23, 2014

Personal story for a change.  I grew up in both South Africa (in my early childhood) and Kenya (most of my school year).  After completing my schooling, I left Kenya to go and study in South Africa.

Never Stop Testing, Adjusting and Fixing

Posted on July 21, 2014

I'm one of those people who finds comfort in a routine.  I want my day to be organized, for my business to be planned out and to basically be on top of things.  But I've found that just isn't really the way life works...not mine anyway.

Some time back I wrote down my workout routine.  Since then it has gone through many changes, so I thought it's time for an update.

Posted on July 17, 2014

I recently chatted to someone who would like to start trying out linux.  I gave him some advice about what I thought might be an interesting way to get to know Linux and what it's all about. 

I thought it might make a nice blog post, so here goes.  Note, this post is rather aimed at nerds, or people who like to tinker a bit.
