What this blog is and isn’t

What this blog is

This blog is something I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time.

I’ve been messing around with Linux, servers and websites for years. Some parts come easy, some parts I have trouble with. Some things I (almost) always remember, some things I never do.

So I intend to record ‘snippets’ of information, as and when I come across them, which I believe I may find helpful to myself in the future. So that I don’t have to go google hunting for the same  information every time I encounter the same problem.

What this blog isn’t

A step by step guide on anything.

Guaranteed to be accurate.

Well written.
