I'm an independent computer programmer based in the north-east of England.

I mostly do Ruby, Python, PHP and C: I've made web frameworks; template systems; search accelerators; search engines; databases of various forms; hardware monitoring tools; blogs; payment processing systems; archivers; email processing systems; etc etc.

I also have experience with system administration, managing FreeBSD, Linux and Solaris servers in various roles, including large replicated MySQL setups, redundant webservers, email, DNS, VPN, source control, system monitoring, deployment, development and so forth.


Bugging me on IRC is by far the most reliable method.
