Blog that sh1t!

Hi my name's Michael Erskine and I'm a recovering software engineer. Please sponsor my efforts to move into the world of hardware where I can't just allocate an array of ten thousand objects to do my bidding. I can't even find the right capacitor!


What on earth is "msemtd"?

In the late 80's I began working as a software engineer at my first real job out of college. At this particular company each employee's Unix username was made up form their initials and their job description. My role as a software developer in the Geographical Information Systems department defined my first real email address, IRC nick, etc. and has become a handy, generally easy to use identifier for life on the interweb waves.
