“Perhaps Someday We Will Look Back Upon These Trials With Joy”

Hi, my name is Irving. I used to blog actively as a student. The “used to” bits are here. I then moved on to a WordPress blog hosted on my old University‘s webspace but my new employers do not issue me with any webspace so I gave up sharing my life with the world.

This here isn’t ideal but it’ll have to do till either: a) I get a pay rise b) strike the lottery or c) my life priorities change. In the meantime, I hope to fill these pages with images of my life…and show you a world in my eyes.

ofey is the handle I use on most websites. Spot an ofey on a forum, it’s most likely to be me especially if its automotive, computing or technology related. It has its origins in that it was my hero’s pseudonym. And if you know an ofey from one, Hi!
