About me / Contact

I’m software professional, music fan, amateur rock critic, photographer, rail enthusiast, gamer with pretensions towards game design, and all-round opinionated blogger.

I’ve called this site “Where Worlds Collide” because it’s always been about a rather eclectic mix of subjects. I’ve structured the site in the form of half a dozen or so sub-blogs, each one rather more focussed on a single subject. You can find them on the menu above.

I’ve been been maintaining this site for more than a decade now as my personal soapbox. The emphasis here is more on my hobbies and interests than my professional life, although I do have a profile on LinkedIn covering my skills, experience and IT-related alphabet soup. Everything here is who I am and what I do.

I post as “kalyr” on many forums throughout the Interweb – you can find me on Twitter, Last.fm and The Guardian Music Blog for starters.

I can also be contacted at tim(at)kalyr(dot)com if you need to contact me my email.

    Hello. I’m an Italian model railroader and I’ve just begun to build a N-scale layout with Kato Unitrack Rails. Did You post other photos of your layout recently? Have You got something to show us about? Thank U

    Various things including a house move have put model railways on hold for the past 18 months. But there will be some developments shortly!

    Just posted on the HMRS site where there has been discussion about log-ins, user names, passwords, and the perceived vagaries of them newfangled computer thingies.
    I thought you might like a touch of whimsy with your afternoon tea and biscuit.

    So when are you coming back to Facebook Tim?

    Probably not. I think Facebook’s “Everyone you know gathered in one place” doesn’t work for me.
