I'm a graphic designer by day, but I have other interests that I write about here. I have a strange fascination with making mechanical and technical things work the way they're supposed to, so if I find a 'fix' for anything I think other people might also be trying to figure out, I'll document it and post my findings. Hope you find something useful or entertaining here. Cheers!
