Dave's Home in the Purplepixie Ether

Welcome & About Me

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.

This website, purplepixie.org, is basically a home for my various projects and my blog about software (mine and in general).
