Hi, My name is Benjamin Saul, a techy, writer and a conformed geek from Australia but currently resides in Mexico. Technology is my passion, I believe through technology we can achieve anything, I am an big believe in using Open Source code and technology where I am able to. I am an big believer in Linux as well as other projects like FreeBSD.I also do find myself reading an lot but not so much as of late. But if you do catch me reading you will find me reading Terry Pratchett, H.P Lovecraft, Frank Herbert, Philip K Dick and Isaac Asimov. I also do enjoy reading comics, I don’t have a favorite author but I do have some favorite comics Asterix, The Adventures of Tintin, Batman, Deadpool, Kickass, Mad Magazine, Lost Girls, Mouse Guard, Nemesis and Transmetropolitan.
Professionally I have an degree in information tech security as well as an few other degrees but information tech security is the highest and most important. These days I find myself programming. As of late I have been doing an lot of C, G-Code, HTML, CSS and some Python. Never uses to be an big fan of C on the desktop, but now that I am using it to code Microcontrollers, I find C to be the best language for the job. I wore many hats in my life, as I had an very difficult time school and found myself not often attending. But that didn’t stop me from achieving what I did. Sadly most of the roles I have held in tech are under NDA (None Disclosure Agreement) I do wish, that I could share some of those stories, because believe me when I say that, there were times when I didn’t know if I could laugh or cry.
Well that is it, thank you for reading and to everyone who likes what I do, I really do appreciate it. I just hope that I am able to give something back.
