Alex Standing by a Fence

I am a thirty-something software engineer who works for a local university; it is local, but it is a large research institution. I program (or have programmed – past tense) in languages with names like java, ruby, php, python and a host of other names. I enjoy programming/coding; it provides mental stimulation and also pays the bills.  I am also a computer science graduate student at the same institution that employs me.

You will likely not find much if any information on programming, software development/engineering, or much in the way of overtly-tech-things.  You can check here if you are curious with things-tech.

You are more likely to read my ramblings on beekeeping, travel, gardening, and things in between.

Abushiri – thanks for the kind words. I apologize for taking such a long time to get back to you. The beekeepers I met in Japan all had a similar problem of sorts (unrelated to beekeeping): they did not speak English. I would be more than happy to put you in contact with them, but I fear that you would not hear back from them. It was not until I enlisted the help of native speakers that I started a very long, and slow back and forth “conversation” with them.
