Just a snowshoe hare, with a fondness for efficient, elegant C/C++ programming, and a particular love of assembly, ARM and PowerPC/Altivec especially. What have I done with that? Quite the assortment.. from two versions of The 11th Hour, including a novel video decoder purely in ARM assembly, through a digital delivery system for broadcast radio, to firmware development for a personal media player and work throughout a leading video processing application; a radio-based audience participation device; a novel contour-based video encoding scheme, and another codec, this time for lightfields; and high efficiency cross-platform H.265 encoding.
I also have an avid interest in photography, particularly wildlife. You can find some examples of my work over on Flickr and 500px.
Whilst I do still update my journal, I'm admittedly more active on my primary Mastodon account. ("Mastodon? What's that?" It's sort of like Twitter, but instead of one entity controlling it all, it's a network made of a vast number of independent instances which mostly talk with each other. So you get the benefit of a microblogging platform, but also the huge advantage of actual admins looking after it all, not algorithms, making it a space people feel safe sharing of themselves)
Of course, there's this televisor thing people tell me about too, and I've encountered some treasures there also, such as She-Ra, Sense8, Look Around You, Orange is the New Black, Danger & Eggs, Babylon 5, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Mr Robot, The Day Today, Absolute Power, Futurama, Hilda, Dogstar, The Box of Delights, Greg the Bunny, MST3K, The Innes Book of Records, Gormenghast, Between Iraq and a Hard Place, Max Headroom, Heroes, MasterChef, Kitchen Nightmares, and (naturally) Doctor Who, most definitely including Thirteen. ^_^
