About this Blog
The title of this blog is it a reference to Eric S. Raymond's first lesson regarding software development:
"1. Every good work of software starts by scratching a developer's personal itch."(The Cathedral and the Bazaar, 1999)
Along those lines, this blog is a venue for posting those projects that I've been working on that scratch a personal itch. In these projects, I have greatly benefited from the efforts of countless open sources tools and the programmers that support them. I hope the this can be a means to share with others what little I've done in advancing the ball forward on the things I care about.
