Tux - my relationship with tech

I am tech curious but by no means a professional or even a gifted amateur. I am, however, habitually drawn to things that are just one step removed from the mainstream... which is how I found myself here in Gemini Space and at The Midnight Pub!

These days it is easier than ever to walk the tech path less trodden, so that is what I've started doing - but as with many things in my life, I take a pragmatic approach. Show me that less trodden path - but don't expect me to walk down it if I have to yield a machete to do so!
