About

Dan Q’s been blogging since the 1990s, mostly about his life, technology, programming, relationships, magic, and games.

He lives in Oxford, UK with his partner and her husband in a polyamorous V-shaped thingy, and their two children. Alongside freelance development, he works for the University of Oxford and volunteers with Three Rings. He sometimes finds time for geo*ing.
