Over the last few years (since early 2019) I've tried to post on this blog regularly to keep my mind alert and to act as a "personal journal" of things I've done, projects i've worked on, or even some little techniques / packages I've discovered.

There was a distinctive break in my posts between Jan 2022 and summer 2023. Mainly due to a lot of changes in my personal life - however since then I've done my utmost to get back into gear and post once more; even if it's just a few lines here or there

If you have any ideas or requests for subject matter, you can always reach out to me via my contact page.
