Hello. I’m Garry Pettet. I’m a Consultant Radiologist, software developer and retro computing nerd living by the seaside in Torquay, Devon, UK. I have two beautiful daughters, Aoife & Maebh and a very tolerant wife Fiona.
About this site
This site is a place for me to express myself either through blogging or sharing projects I’m working on. I can’t pretend to be a prolific writer but I do like to put my thoughts out there from time to time. I used to use WordPress to power my site but then this year I decided to re-invent the wheel and write my own static site generator in Xojo, Aoife. It also powers most of the other sites I maintain (like aoife.io and xojo.blog). It’s easy to use and free so please check it out if you’re interested.
This site is currently hosted on a VPS with DigitalOcean because they are awesome and competitively priced.
Everything you see on the site, from the CSS to the content is written by me. In fact, since Aoife powers the site I’ve literally written every line of code you see. Nerdy but I’m pretty proud of that.
