Welcome

I'm David Llewellyn-Jones and this is my homepage. I'm a software engineer at Jolla, who's also interested in programming, security, privacy and graphics. I occasionally crave adventure and a good thunderstorm. You might be interested in my software, my research or my random musings.

Want to know more about me? Here's a personality sketch written by a psychologist when I was in school.

“David is of high intelligence, although lacking in true creativity. He has a need for order and clarity, and for neat and tidy systems in which every detail finds its appropriate place. His writing is rather dull and mechanical, occasionally enlivened by somewhat corny puns and by flashes of imagination of the sci-fi type. He has a strong drive for competence. He seems to have little feel and little sympathy for other people and does not enjoy interacting with others. Self-centered, he nonetheless has a deep moral sense.”

Wow. Harsh. But disturbingly accurate.

18 Jan 2020 : Waste data dump #
Another week of waste, but my strategy of avoiding glass and tins seems to have paid off. My general waste was about average and my composted waste was more than I'd have preffered, but total waste output was very nearly half of my average from last year. If I can keep this up my new year's resolution will be in the bag.

After the new year started badly, I've managed to be much more restrained this week with my waste output. I'm trying my best to cut out tins and glass jars entirely, which at least I managed this week.
