Welcome to Bob’s Project Notebook

You’ve stumbled onto my stash of project notes.

What is this place?

I’m a firm believer in Rubber Duck Debugging, the process of solving a problem by explaining it. Rather than consulting an expert, try to clearly explain the problem to a fellow human or even an inanimate object (such as a rubber duck). The solution is likely to be obvious once you’ve examined the problem thoroughly.

These notes are my attempts to fully understand a variety of tech-releated problems by explaining them. In this case, to a text editor.

Here’s more on the Rubber Duck Troubleshooting methodology.

Who is this guy?

I’m Bob. I’ve been making my way in this world doing computer, programming, network and cyber security work as a designer, integrator, installer, maintainer, trainer and consultant for a very long time. It’s in those last two roles that I’ve found this approach quite useful.

Standard disclaimer applies

Be forewarned that I don’t claim to be a particular expert in any of these topics. I’m not charging for admission, nor am I generating ad revenue from these pages. I do hope that my explanations of these project challenges will be useful. If not, may I suggest explaning your problem to a rubber duck?
