Hi, I'm Phil, aka Phlash (it's a long story or a plausible abbreviation of my real name).
I've recently retired from a fairly complex career mainly in software engineering, with a bit of electronics and people engineering on the side!
I'm a Dad (6 grown children), Grandad (4 times so far..), UK resident, musician, sailor, holiday enthusiast :)
Nice to be here.

tbh if you're writing c code then you should probably start by writting a fuzzer harness instead of a test harness. find the crashes early and the actual logical bugs become easier
