I have taken the plunge and I’ve gone part time at work, dropping to three days a week, to give me far more time to concentrate on my lifelong passion of robotics with the aim of making it my career! This wasn’t exactly planned if I’m honest but the result of a recent epiphany, building […]
The site was migrated to SSDNodes last year as my previous host was becoming less reliable and I fancied something more versatile. I’ve not covered it on here but here is how my site runs, now with added HTTPS thanks to LetsEncrypt! A bit of history. This is a WordPress site and has been since it […]
