Tax Avoidance For Dummies

A while back I spent two years being self-employed as a contractor. I was annoyed with my previous employer, and liked the idea of having a little bit of freedom. As such I had to create my own little company. Holiday Fund may have been in the name. That was nice, but there was a... Continue Reading →

The Belgariad

I can’t believe that it is nearly twenty five years since I first read the Belgariad.

Let’s Talk About Data

It’s quite rare that I talk about my day job on the blog. Recently there has been a brouhaha about people’s data not being properly protected.
