This is a place where I can blow off steam literarily. Admit it, you thought that said literally. Read it again.
Random Words started life as ‘Rambling On’ in early 2012. Unfortunately, it wasn’t self-hosted and was taken down when Posterous was taken down. You can view the web archive version of that beautiful site here. Even better, you can view the archived content of that site on this blog under the Rambling On Category.
Before rebooting in 2017, the site to held my thoughts on football, life and anything else I could attach an opinion to. It almost sounds enticing, but I wrote it and therefore there’s no appeal.
In its current guise this website is about my journey in web development. Prepare to be underwhelmed. In fact, don’t even prepare to be underwhelmed because you’ll be disappointed you wasted time preparing to be underwhelmed.
My name is Efstathios Stivaros and, as I write this, I’m in my mid twenties. My leisure time is mainly spent enjoying sports, reading and computing. When people hear “computing” there’s usually that strong mental image of someone tangled up in a mass of wires or pouring over machine code. I’m not that sort of computer person — although I spent a year and a quarter as an IT Technician for Barnet FC. I was very much on my way to being the man tangled up in wires.
Having been both laid back and ruthlessly efficient (read: lazy) for as long as I can remember, IT-based productivity has been something of a saviour for me. It’s allowed me to complete more work with relatively less time and effort spent. What’s not to love about that?
With the time I free up by being productive I enjoy coaching football and offering my thoughts on productivity to local NPOs. As such, both topics occupy the majority of my thinking space.
When I’m not committing the absolute minimum to maintaining this site I might be working for my business, NTS Creative. Check it out, I will do unspeakable things for dollah.
