Revision as of 14:21, 20 October 2010

Hello, I am Barney Livingston.

I first picked up a soldering iron aged about 10 or 11. I used to assemble kits from Maplin with help from my Dad, back in the day when Maplin sold a huge range of cheap kits.

My first successful project was a light controlled chicken house door which let the chickens out at dawn and locked the foxes out at dusk.

Nowadays I earn my crust as a Linux systems administrator while tinkering with electronics at home.

My main areas of interest are home automation, sensing things of all kinds, and photography.

I'm very good at starting projects, terrible at finishing them.
