Who is Qwan?

I am a software developer with 25 years of software development experience.

I have worked for a couple of New Zealand companies
and one global software corporate.

My home interests centre on my personal computer.
I like benchmarking my overclocked, water-cooled system,
patching it every couple of hours, and generally trying
to keep it running 24 x 7, a sisyphean task.

We could also have a conversation about HDTV and audio
receivers, though I listen much more than I speak.

What is QWaN?

Quality Without a Name.
