About Me:
My name is Ashley, I'm twenty-two, and I live on the south coast of England.

I am a software developer, always have been and always will be. My love for it is rooted in the days of the first home computers, in particular my parents' ZX Spectrum. I have watched generations of hardware and software come and go, and known through all of it that I had to be a part of it. I am familiar with a range of languages, including C/C++/C#, Visual Basic, PHP, MySQL, T-SQL, x86 Assembly, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript and QuickBASIC. I have a particular interest in operating systems, and the future evolution of human-computer interfaces.

I love music. My genre of choice is rock, including everything from classic rock, soft rock, to hard , rock, progressive rock, and even on as far as metal. I like a few other things like soft piano music, acoustic guitar, and occasionally blues. To pick a few favourites... Dream Theater, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Live, Queen, Pink Floyd, The Rasmus, Evanescence, Crowded House, Eve 6, Matchbox Twenty, Staind, Train and Switchfoot.

I have at some point in my life separated a subset of my own personality into my dæmon; an independant animal-formed representation of myself which exists only in my mind. Her name, given to her by Shanna in 2003, is Shiley, and she takes the form of a black panther.

I look down at the world and society in general, but do have quite a deep interest in watching the ways our civilisation works. I am pessimistic and cynical, but my experience has show rightfully so.

This journal is entirely public, just as it should be.
