About me

If you have heard about me, there's a good chance it's either because I'm an electrical engineer who has been in a few start up companies, or because I've been doing kendo most of my life. However, these don't begin to describe everything I'm into... more on that someday.

One thing you can tell just from the home page: I like things compact, efficient, and organized in transparent boxes!

I reserve the right to make minor tweaks to the wording of previously written articles to make things clearer, fix grammar, or improve the phrasing. This will be noted by a "Miscellaneous minor tweaks" bullet in the site update entry (and the bullet will always be there; I can't help myself!). If I do make a more-than-minor update to an article, it will be described in a footnote in the article itself.

Why "Seeking42"?

It's from the first book of the 6-book trilogy "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy", where 42 is revealed to be the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. If you already knew any of this, we probably have a lot in common. Either that, or you saw the movie.

Some time ago (maybe when the movie came out?), I remarked to my husband Dave that "Seeking42" might be a good blogging domain name, especially for someone like me who is interested in so many different things. He grabbed for me before some domain troll could squat on it.

In truth, I would have preferred a domain name having something to do with ninja. I feel far more qualified to claim ninja-ship than many of the ersatz ninja out there. Unfortunately, I couldn't come up with a good ninja-related domain name, so Seeking42 it is.

And yes, the ninja connection explains the yin-yang-ish logo I designed for the header.
