Page: What is spanspek?2008-02-27 21:09:12
1. Blog of David Rodger, sound production teacher and wanna-be PHP developer; 2. Spanish bacon; or... According to a number of on-line sources (Encarta, About, etc.), spanpsek is a melon widely grown in Southern Africa. That name is used in South Africa and if you call it canteloupe or anything else while there most people will not understand what you mean. South Africa's spanspek is vastly superior to any equivalent elsewhere. In this respect it's rather like Swedish strawberries (the commercially cultivated jordgubbe, not the wild smultron). The purpose of this page is actually not to demonstrate how widely travelled or knowledgable I am (I'm neither). If you were wondering what spanspek is, now you know and it may or may not interest you to know that I just liked the name and was delighted to find the domain name available. When my registrar had a 99 cent special on domain name registrations, I jumped at it. If you think blogging is just an extremely accessible form of vanity publishing, you're probably right. But everyone else is doing it, so I thought I might too. I'd like to write about a few things I'm interested in, like sound production and web development. The latter includes my impressions of this software, Habari, and notes about using the konstrukt framework of which lately I have become a bit of a fan. We'll see where it goes. Amazingly, the previous version of the site (a front page with a picture of spanspek) made it on the first search page in Google and this site remains there (so far).
