Hi all,

Computer work costs coffee beans.

If you’ve read my blog, The Developer’s Tidbits, or used my open-source software, you’ll know that programming can be a very complicated business. Doing what I do takes patience and perception, the kind that only a hot cup of coffee can provide. 

It’s a labour of love, though, and one that I’m happy to share with the world. Thanks to each and every one of you for your readership and feedback over the years. Your support drives me to try new things and to share simple fixes for complicated problems.

Coffee also drives me to try new things.

So please, if you read or watch any of my content, consider filling my cup so I can keep on programming.
