My name is Allan Bowden-Smith. I’m an avid gamer and a technophile at heart, with a hint of a tinker’s mind.
Why the moniker?
A geeky play on a geeky name brought about by a geeky past-time. Because it was unique, it became my name on almost everything online.
Why a blog?
I have been blogging since 2005. I originally started blogging on Livejournal (the results of which are here), and stayed there until 2009. I started this website in 2008 to try and get an online hub away from the one provided by my ISP, and then used this one solely. A few revisions later, and here we are.
It’s stuck through me returning to Livejournal, a brief fling with Tumblr, and a six year bout of depression.
I write when I can about what I want, and that’s pretty much all I can say about what the blog is about.
A bit more?
I studied Chemistry, CCNA (Initial Cisco Networking Course), an NVQ in Systems Deployment, and A-Level ICT at Mill Hill Sixth Form College (now known as Ripley Academy).
My hobbies include D&D Fifth Ed, Netrunner (when I can remember where my decks are), very occasional Magic: The Gathering. I am also in the process of building a racing-grade RC car, but I’m very slow at it. Same with learning guitar.
My fandoms are .hack, Ace Combat and Ghost in the Shell. And Pokémon.
