What do you mean you've never heard of second breakfast?
Introduction
Who am I: I'm a hacker. Mostly the computer version of that, but I tend to apply the mentality to everything, including marriage and parenting. The constant question is "how can I bend the resources at my disposal in the situation I'm in to get the outcome I want?"

What I do: By day I'm a mix of sysadmin and developer at FastMail. We use Perl, Cyrus, Postfix, MySQL and Linux to make mail awesome.

By night, I'm a developer and merge monkey for Pioneer, a space trading and combat game in the tradition of Frontier. Over there its C++, Lua, OpenGL, physics, maths, and community management. Mostly everything that work is not.

In between all that I'm a father to three headstrong daughters and husband to the single most inspiring person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

What I post about: Mostly things I'm working on, especially if I can show screenshots, and occasional photos of the kids. Pretty much anything that tickles my fancy though :)

It's been another busy year for the Cyrus mail server, the open-source engine that powers FastMail, and there's still loads more to come in 2017.
