Don't quit

Hi, I'm Tim Trott. I'm an experienced Software Engineer in Glasgow, Scotland, with a love for Photograpy, Space, UX and internet security.

My goal here is to share my experiences, knowledge, photography, and help people through writing articles and tutorials. I like to write about computers and technology, photography and astronomy, travel and cooking.


Meet the newest member of our family...
19th November 2007Myself
Meet Ernie, the newest member of our family. At approximately four weeks old, he was found abandoned, miles away from anywhere and very weak.
