The humble beginnings

September 26, 2012

After quite a long time of hesitation and indecisiveness, I have finally managed to get it together and start a blog. Despite having been active in the IT field for quite a while, I have never set up a place where I could unconstrainedly express myself, i.e. personal webpage, mostly for the reason that I have never really had anything to say to the masses. (well, I’ve been writing a Windows Longhorn beta testing blog for a while, but let’s just agree to never mention it again, shall we? ☺)

Well, things have changed. I have become more proactive in my fields of interest and during my technological meanderings, I have stumbled upon some interesting problems, figured out some interesting solutions and it would be a waste if I kept it all to myself and a small circle of my colleagues. I think that becoming active in the StackOverflow community helped towards this decision the most, because I have developed a habit of regular written expression, of whatever sort it may be. Hence, during my summer internship at Arnes, the idea of this blog was born et voilà, here it is. To the more fundamentalist of you: Yes, it is powered by WordPress and no, I am not ashamed. I find it quite exquisite thus far.

The content on this blog will probably revolve around topics that interest me most. Generally, you should expect some networking (routing software/hardware, IPv6 deployment and developments, …), some programming (C++11, alogrithms), and almost certainly some mathematics and linguistics. Occasionally I will (probably) drop in some non-technology, Real Life™ stuff. Maybe.

I guess that a promise that I will be posting regularly is in place but I consider this a bad omen. I hope it works out ☺.
