Web design is my main interest, and is why I am involved in making a web based game. I have thoroughly enjoyed programming and designing the game and it certainly is an interesting experience dealing with user feedback. Much of my time during 2003 was spent developing and maintaining Voidwars and improving my PHP and MySQL skills.
I often help with hardware and software problems of friends and family, such as installing new hardware or reinstalling their system. I have also built my own computer from components several times since I prefer it to be customised to my needs.
Outside of computers I'm a keen reader of mostly fantasy books, such as books by David Eddings and Ian Irvine.
