[12th May 2014 update] Verse and music on this page are slowly being transferred to different blogs, imaginatively entitled David Harley’s Songs and David Harley’s Verse, and in fact there’s already a whole more information there. If you’re only interested in the security-related stuff, you might want to shoot over to my Small Blue-Green World page.

Here’s a close-to-full list of the other Small Blue-Green blogs:
I suppose you could call this my vanity site. It’s maintained as a resource for my music and for writing that isn’t (usually) directly connected to my ‘real’ job as an IT security author/consultant. (If you’re actually interested in the security stuff, see the links at the end of this post.) Just to be clear, none of this material is in the public domain, and all rights are reserved. I hope you enjoy listening to/reading it but if you actually want to use it in any commercial context, unlikely as that may sound, you are honour-bound and legally required to ask me first: you can email me at info[at]dharley.com. Or via Small Blue-Green World, which is me wearing my business head.

Quick and dirty recordings of songs I hope to revisit and spend more time on a better version. Home-recorded on BOSS digital gear which I hope to have time to learn to use properly Real Soon Now. Just one song – Bootup Blues – there at the moment, though two of the recordings added to the Songs Without Music page also qualify and will probably get moved shortly:
Settings of poems (unaccompanied demo versions)
- Bredon Hill (Housman-Harley)
- The Carpenter’s Son (Housman-Harley)
- When I was in love (Housman-Harley)
- Farewell to Severn Shore (Housman-Harley)
- The Pilgrim (Yeats-Harley)
- A Ballad for Katherine of Aragon (Causley-Harley)
- The Seasons in North Cornwall (Causley-Harley)
- A Fairy Tale (and not, therefore, anything to do with AV testing)
- Vanity Press (or The Glass Bead Game Revisited) (the joys and sorrows of working with major publishers)
- A Front Row Seat in the Security Theatre
- 24/7 Ranting
At the moment, this page consists of a floor-singer’s tipsheet a number of us compiled in the late 1990s, and a reference to a later version – not sure where that comes from, but it wasn’t me. As I seem to spending a lot of time with old folkies these days, it may be that other things might find their way onto this page in due course.
…could have been a separate page here, I suppose, but it isn’t, for historical reasons. Anyway, here’s a list of what’s there at present:
- A Torrent of Abuse (Thoughts on passwording that Paul Simon may never have had)
- Convoy II (60s hit re-imagined in a slightly different social context)
- Make Mine A Snowball (what would Xmas be without The Snowman?)
Security-related publications aren’t kept on this site now. Most of my recent papers are available or linked from the ESET resources pages including white papers, conference papers, and articles for external publications and sites. Mac and other Apple-related resources are mostly kept at the Mac Virus site. Some other papers and information on some of my security books can be found on the Small Blue-Green World blog page.
