Fascinating Captain

Tech Guides and Buying Advice

The online web: an ever expanding frontier.

These are the voyages through this seemingly infinite internet universe. The continuing mission: to explain different types of tech, to seek out useful gadgets and to find out what really is worth buying, to boldly learn new things and perhaps go where no opinion has gone before.

Hi, this is Captain and you’ve probably ended up here after having found one of my posts useful or maybe even interesting. This is my little space on the internet universe so let me tell you a little about what my blog is about and why I decided to set it up.

A couple of years ago I was working as a mobile IT engineer and created this blog to chronicle my IT experiences and as well as pass on some of my tech related knowledge. Alas, after only a handful of posts other commitments in my life took priority and this blog floated silently on its journey in the sea of data that is the internet…

Fast forward last year and with a sense of renewed commitment and energy, I wiped the blog completely and started over. I was now an office based IT guy and not a mobile engineer anymore – so what was the site going to be about?

I am at heart a person who finds tech fascinating and so this blog is exactly that – helpful tech guides and videos, tech reviews and live prices for tech I recommend. I have a particular interest in Open Source software, Linux and generally building stuff.

So why fascinating Captain? Is this a Star Trek fan site?

Although I am a Star Trek fan (who isn’t? the show had amazing ideas, futuristic settings, lots of tech and a way to discuss contemporary issues from a distance) my blog is not a fan site. The blog name relates more to my fascination with technology and being the site owner I naturally became Captain, my online alias.

In homage to the great Star Trek though, I used the opening narration from the series to capture what you should expect from my blog.

I mentioned live prices for tech products and I would like to point out that these will usually be affiliate links for which I earn a small commission should you end up buying the product.

This is a great way for me to earn some money from my online endeavours; being a dreamer I live in hope that one day this site might even become my full time job.

It’s probably a good time to say that this website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.

If you do buy the products I recommend using my links I would like to thank you, after all, affiliate commission is a great motivator!

The best way to find stuff that interests you is to use the projects or category links in the sidebar. If you like what you see and want more, subscribe now to be notified of any new posts that I create.

Why not send me a tweet on Twitter if you have any tech suggestions? Or you can always subscribe to my YouTube channel for all my latest videos!

So what are you waiting for? Have a look around and feel free to leave a comment.

One last thing, I believe learning should be a lifelong endeavour and I hope I can be a small part in helping you learn something new.
