Hi I'm Dave, welcome to my somewhat pedestrian personal website-o-matic!
Currently I live in Belfast, UK, where I work at Queen's University Belfast having completed a PhD at the University of East Anglia. If this is of any interest check out my professional site. Before UEA I was in africa for a bit. As well as computers I like rocketry and am a member of this bunch of despotic clowns. When I have time I ride my motorbike and play badly with photography.
There follows a list of the larger projects of mine hosted on purplepixie.org, including both current(ish) ones still under development or maintainence, and some older projects linked here just for reference.
