About dnt.im

Hi there, welcome to my little space on the t'interweb, enjoy. In some ways this is a test site, i'll add/chop/change/remove things to suit my liking at that time. I've found that designing this sites template from scratch isn't that easy, one day I may finish it or just keep adding bits has I see fit, so in some ways this site will never truely be finished. The site is running on my own bloging software so is probably full of bugs which I'll iron out has and when they appear, so far so good :).
