Howdy, I’m Scott Ogrin. I’m an electrical engineer who has worked in all kinds of different fields.

For the most part, I’m a software guy, but I also love hardware. I’ve programmed in JavaScript, C, C++, assembly language for Intel, Motorola, and other platforms, Java, PHP, and probably other languages I’ve forgotten about by now.

In terms of web programming, I especially like Javascript, Ruby, and Rails.

I’ve been using computers and tinkering for over 35 years now, having started fairly young with my first BASIC program on a TI-99/4A. I’m also pretty handy with more traditional tools, powertools, carpentry, etc.

I suppose you could say I’m kind of a jack of all trades. I don’t believe in knowing only how to do one thing very well. That’s just boring. I aspire to do all kinds of things very well. But it isn’t always easy. And that’s why I created this blog!

Quite often I’d find myself scouring Google or the like to find some little obscure bit of info to solve some problem I’d encountered, whether it be with Ruby, a broken appliance, or how best to descale a calcified appliance. This blog is intended to be a record and reference tool for others out there so that hopefully, you won’t have to spend as much as time as I did finding the solutions to your technical problems.

Hope you find something useful here!
