This is the personal web site of Ian Batty.
So the real question is: Which Ian Batty am I? After all, according to there are 46 Ian Battys in the UK alone. To help you decide if I am the Ian Batty you are looking for you can read my history. But even if I am not the right Ian Batty there is always the jokes section.

It provides links to my company (Maguffyn), blog, photos, Calendar as well as a collection of jokes, videos and art.
The section most frequently updated is the blog. Other sections take a bit more work (and thought) to update, so they are updated a little less frequently.

Personal web sites are often regarded as "vanity publishing" and this one is no exception. I created this site because I wanted to. I guess it also provides the ability to communicate with anyone interested in what I have to say. If you like what I say, let me know and if you don't, well there is a whole world of other web pages out there to go and visit.


I used to have a status published to this page telling the world what I was doing . For the tech minded it used Twitter and was synchronised with Facebook too, but over time I have come to think that perhaps it is better not to have everything synchronised. So, if you want to know what I am doing then follow me on Twitter (user: maguffyn) and if you know me then the Facebook status will tell you slightly different things.

However, I still see no harm in the latest status of where I am (geographically, obviously not psychologically)
