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 was initially hosted by the generous people at Lotus911 (later GBS), running on IBM Connections. In 2012 I moved the blog to WordPress, due to limitations of Connections. The main reason was that only users with accounts on the system could comment on the blog. as well as issues when trying to embed videos.
I moved the old content from bleedyellow.com to this blog, so that all the info I posted back then will continue to be available. Some formatting may have been lost in the process, though.
You can find my personal website at www.texasswede.com, where you can learn more about me.

How to contact me
I am available for custom development and consulting. The best and easiest way is to contact me through email, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You can also find me on Skype, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
My policy on comments
I require a real name (or a well-known handle) and a real email address for all comments. 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 provide some valid arguments. My blog, my rules.
