This is the technology blog of John Beardon. Full-time IT and Communications Manager, IT Consultant, Web Site Developer and self-confessed 'tech head'.

You may have discovered this site by links to either Ashleigh Consulting or Ashweb Creative Development. Ashleigh Consulting is a business still in operation but has taken a back seat since my transition back into a full time IT Management role.

Instead of wasting a perfectly good domain name, I decided to set up this site to share tech tips, reviews and projects I complete in my spare time. The majority of this stuff will be techie based but a number of the things I get up to also involve 'fiddling with wood' so there will be a bit of that as well.

I hope you find at least some of it useful!
