Hi there. This is a domain I purchased back at the dawn of time (circa 1999). This domain is also my last name, hence why I was so keen to purchase it back in the day.

Over the years, this domain has hosted a lot of dreams. There was the time around 2002 that I decided to try and start a small IT consultancy, Hicox Information Systems, LLC, there was also the time I decided to give being a blogger a real go. These were early days, and I built my own CMS (there weren't a lot to choose from back then). Of course, I eventually abandoned that and migrated to blogger, and so most of my early blogging exists only in the archive of the EFF's wayback machine.

In my professional life, I've been an IT programmer for the last 25 years or so. I've written a whole boatload of code, the open source bits I'm allowed to share with the world are linked over on the right, should you be interested. But the passion that's never completely left me is music. I'm not saying that everything I've put out there is a masterpiece I'm totally proud of, but it's what I do.

I write code and I make music.

This site is a sometimes-updated map of my journey through this life, reflected in the things I have posted around the internet.
