Hey there!

Have you ever wanted to just quickly type out a few short ideas. Not necessarily to have to save for later but just to get down on pad, or screen? Well, inspired by an article from Jose Jesus Perez Aguinaga I had a little play and made myself a simple, distraction free place at: https://starlifterdigital.com/scratchpad.html.

Feel free to use it for all those little moments of inspiration.

Enjoy,
Benet.

Hey Freedom Lovers,

I love Free and Open Source Software (FLOSS). If you do too why not let others know about it today 😀

Check out the Free Software Foundation Europe page for ways to celebrate this lovely day. And if you’d like to know more about what Free and Open Source Software (FLOSS) is visit the official page.

Peace,
Benet aka Dr Hitchcock.

New year, new site design.

Hey there,

Well we are well and truly into 2013. It’s a new year so I thought I’d get a new look together for Starlifter Digital. 2012 was a fun year filled with Raspberry Pis, PirateBoxes and plenty of Web Design. This year looks like it’s gonna be just as crazy.

More to come 😉
Benet.
