De Blog

Welcome to the Saxon Systems blog. Here I intend sharing ideas, concepts, solutions and generally anything I think will add value to your life. I have had the privilege of having access to the contribution of 1000's of other people’s ideas, help and other valuable content which has helped shape and make my life a lot easier and much more interesting not to mention keeping the bank manager at bay whilst not having to do too much hard work. So here is my contribution to all those folks out there.

Keep in mind this is a work in progress and while I amuse myself with my "dark" web site theme I also have to satisfy Bianca my daughter who is a budding graphics designer and is keen to ensure her Dad's web site is made less boring. So if this Blog starts looking like a high school project you know who won the argument!
