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 also absolutely love developing software. Predominantly, I use Rust and Go. Rust for its expressiveness, execution speed, and memory safety, and Go for its rapid development pace and pleasant syntax.

My primary long-term project is called 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. 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 featured on BSD Now (episode 294). I've poured my heart into this, and regularly spend 20+ hours per week working on some aspect of it.

My current side project is directly related to the tildeverse. Previously, a draft spec was written for a kind of currency simulation (not cryptocurrency) by another administrator. I've decided to write an implementation of this currency simulation using the spec. It's a fun project! If you'd like to see the (incomplete) code:

I'm always working on some kind of coding project. My GitHub account is very active, so feel free to peruse it. I like to follow other active developers working on cool things - contact me so I can follow you on GitHub.
