Hi there. My name is Michael Horne. Welcome to my website! It's nothing fancy, but hopefully you can find what you're looking for.

Who are you?

I'm a ColdFusion/SQL web developer living and working in Bedfordshire, UK with my wife and step-children. I'm a Raspberry Pi enthusiast and performer/director for amateur theatre. I'm also an occasional artwork creator - mostly theatre posters but the occasional book cover as well.

How can I contact you?

If you need to get in contact with me, use the contact form or email me at or follow me on Twitter @recantha

What's on your website?

If you're a fan of the Raspberry Pi mini-computer, you're probably looking for my blog, Raspberry Pi Pod.

or you could be looking for my new site (July 2015), MicroBit Pod, a blog all about the BBC's micro:bit board. MicroBit Pod.

Or you may be looking for the Cambridge Raspberry Jam website, which I co-run with Tim Richardson.

Or you could even be looking for Pi Wars, a Raspberry Pi robotics competition to be held in December 2014.

If you're a fan of 1950s radio science fiction, you may be interested in my Journey into Space website which contains a lot of information about the legendary series.

And, lastly, I'm a big fan of Tennessee in the USA. We have family out there, so here's a page with links to the general area we visit. It's a bit of a scrappy page so please excuse the mess.
