About Nimrod

I don't give too much away on the Internet, as I don't agree with forming unneccessary trust relationships. My natural paranoia is mainly a by product of my calling which is that of a professional geek.

In brief, I am a male in my mid thirties, born, bred and living in Bristol. I am married and my wife and I have four children. I include football, snooker, martial arts and computing amongst my hobbies and interests. I am very outspoken and fully believe in speaking my mind. I do not suffer fools kindly and will often make a point of expressing displeasure at things I see, that I don't agree with. I believe that good people will show modesty, empathy and will stand up for what they truly believe is right. I don't like to see people arguing, although when I become embroiled on one myself, I will never back down.

I believe that ideas should not be patented and that inventions and technologies that benefit mankind should be owned by mankind. As a result, I choose to use genuinely free software in computing. It usually involves more work on my part and less compatibility with mainstream software, but the ethics are what keeps me hooked.

I detest racism, sexism, infidelity and greed. Being an old fashioned bloke at heart, I am often appalled by the distinct lack of morals that is becoming the norm. Take advertising, for example, where it is not uncommon to see infidelity used as an attention grabber, even for such mundane things as paint! This world is a money oriented, shock value driven disgrace.

I love my wife, my children and my football club of choice, in Bristol City.
