gopher me

I'm a nerd who has been using Linux since 2001 and BSD since 2013. I love all things UNIX & Linux, and I am also a hobbyist developer. Mostly, I use Go due to its pleasant syntax, rapid development pace, and out-of-the-box support of concurrency. Occasionally, Bash or Python are more appropriate for certain tasks.

At the moment, I'm working on two intertwined projects. The larger is a twtxt registry server, with the second being a Go library that provides twtxt registry-related functions. twtxt is a decentralized microblogging service based on sharing text file data via HTTP. The repository for both projects can be found under the github.com/getwtxt organization.

My primary long-term project is called tilde.institute. It's a place created in the tildeverse for users to explore the OpenBSD operating system. The tildeverse is a network of *nix servers whose purpose is to foster collaboration, development, and self-education with respect to the Linux and BSD world. tilde.institute features mail, gopher, web hosting, games, development tools, and a local node in the larger tildeverse IRC network. It uses OpenBSD httpd(8), gophernicus, pf, and OpenSMTPd. On 18 April 2019, it was highlighted on BSD Now (episode 294).
