Welcome to my blog.
I am Karl-Henry Martinsson, also known as “TexasSwede”. As my name (and maybe sometimes my grammar) may give away, I am originally from Sweden, but living in the US since 1998, and in Texas since 2002.
My blogging started in January 2008, and my blog have been hosted by the generous people at Lotus911 (later GBS), running on IBM Connections, ever since then. The reason I changed platform has nothing to do with them, but the limitations of Connections (mainly the fact that only users on the system can comment on entries, as well as issues when trying to embed videos) made me start looking elsewhere.
On this blog I plan to continue to write about the same things as before, a mix of Notes and Domino, web design, programming, photography and cooking. I will probably throw in a few personal thoughts on occasion.
I was also selected by IBM as IBM Champions in 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2017.

My policy on comments
I require a real name (or well-known handle) and a real email address. If the address sounds bogus or made up, I reserve the right to delete the comment. Same thing for trolls. You can be critical of what I write about, but then you must come with some valid arguments.
