What's this all about?

There have been many occasions where I have found myself working to solve certain problems, and scanning countless pages on the web looking for a clue. Eventually I find the right pieces to the puzzle, and the problem is solved. How much easier it would have been if the right info had been indexed, and a solution had been posted on the web.

And thus, the "Brain Shed." That place where you put stuff that you don't want to get rid of, "cause I might need it someday." Hence, the "brain shed" will be assorted bits and pices of wisdom, odds and ends of useful information, recipes for solutions in any area, as well as just a spot to stick all the geeky stuff I'm interested in.

Overall this is just my little geek-spot on the web.

Happiness
True love begins when the needs of others become more important than your own.
