What Update?

Hullo. It’s certainly been a while since I last posted within my Web Blog. This kind of feels like an ice breaker, even if this is almost like speaking to myself 😉 The lack of posts in here is all due to a strategy I adopted shortly after the year began, which was to prioritize Tech Blog posts.

About Me


My name is Peter Whyte and this is my website - my place for posting whatever holds interest is all this is.

I enjoy taking a dive into different technologies and it's been a fun journey learning how to develop a website using a tool like WordPress. I love the idea of having my own webspace, particularly so I have a place to refer back to for useful links & info.

I currently hold a role as a Data/Database Administrator within a Marketing Insight/Business Intelligence team. I spend most of my time looking after SQL Server & SSIS workloads and providing application support to BI platforms such as Cognos. I enjoy it as it can be technically fulfilling, particularly when I'm tuned in troubleshooting some database or application issue.

I'm always hungry for a challenge at work. I have a passion for two things mostly, fixing software issues, and understanding why the thing broke in the first place. Being more specific though, SQL Server & Windows Server are two things I love to nerd over.

When I'm not at work, my life goals are to raise my daughter to the best of my ability... and to have fun!

I hope you enjoy any of what you find on here. Feel free to contact me if there's an urge to do so 😉
