About

Hi, I’m Ricky Dee and this is my personal site where I can post about anything and everything but mostly nothing.

Professionally I’m an Engineering Product Line Manager in the Oil & Gas industry and live in the NE of Scotland but originally hail from Northern Ireland.

Personally, and the main focus of this website, I have a financially ruinous relationship with Hi-Fi (particularly headphones), a passionate interest bordering on ignorant wonder of Arduino/Raspberry Pi/Internet of Things/Smart Home technology and how it can save me electricity (I long accepted I’d turned into my Dad the first time I opened my very own Electricty bill) or remove the need for me to move off my sofa or any technology or topic that takes my fancy.

As a timeserved toolmaker and professional Engineer I’m also intrigued with the Maker movement – 3D printing, desktop CNC machines etc. My dream would be to own a fully loaded machine shop, I’d never leave it.

So, enough about me, I hope you find something of interest or maybe answers to a question that brought you here somewhere within my website.

All opinions presented here are my own and I’m unanimous on that.
