I’m Samuel Penn, a software development manager currently living in Hampshire, England, and currently working at Perforce Software. Previously I’ve been a Java/C developer and document management consultant working for a number of companies since the mid nineties. Prior to that I studied Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Edinburgh University, and initially learned to program on a BBC Micro using Basic and assembler (6502 and later ARM).
For some years I’ve managed a site at https://www.notasnark.net/ which mostly contains RPG and Wargaming material. Since 2011 or so, I’ve posted a lot of material (science, science fiction and gaming related) to Google+, but since the demise of that platform I decided to start my own blog. Which is where you are now.
The title of the blog is Gaming Chronicles, and mostly contains write ups and notes from the various RPGs I play and run. I will also include other content as takes my fancy, but it will probably be limited to gaming, fantasy and science fiction material. This may include discussion about software products related to the above.
Other places in which I can be found on social media include:
- email@example.com – maybe my main public social media presence, but it’s not as good as G+ was, so I don’t have much enthusiasm for it
- https://mewe.com/i/samuelpenn – my other social media presence, but it’s a walled garden so I don’t post much there either
- twitter.com/NotASnark – not used much, except to post links to here, and deleted after 30 days
