Hello you and welcome to my blog.
I originally created this blog to keep track of various gardening projects I started in 2009 and being a complete novice thought it would serve as a useful learning tool for me. Rapidly I found that my blog developed into a mixture of all my hobbies, thoughts and ideas.
I’m a IT technician with a passion for all things Tech, be it old, retro or new. Everything from HTPC, Windows, Linux, Photoshop, IPTV, Tech news, retro gaming…….on and on. As well as gardening, I’m a keen photographer shooting with either my Canon DSLR, Fuji bridge camera or iPhone…especially the latter as it’s one device I’ve always got to hand.
In 2009 I attended my first Retro Computer Museum gaming event, met some great people that have since become very good friends and I now volunteer at the museum in my spare time.This really rekindled my interest in older tech and in particular, retro gaming. Although this has never pushed my keen interest in gardening to one side it does make for a strange mix of subjects on a blog.
Early in 2012, I decided to split my blog into two, moving my veggie growing and photography exploits to a new WordPress blog called StiGGy plot – http://stiggysplot.wordpress.com/ so if you get tired of pixel blasting feel free to head on over there and see me figure out if it’s a weed or plant
