"Programming is fun, so is reinventing the wheel. Why use a set of libraries and simplified APIs when you can write everything from scratch? People complain about this but do you ever see a qualified and skillful carpenter import furniture parts from IKEA? Low-level programming is fun, and if you are accountable for all the software I find that is better for maintainability and sense of achievement."

active projects

  • synthropy which is a music synthesizer.

  • Play your computer's keyboard!

  • establish - The Installer.

    Establish will download a list of operating system images from which you can choose, download and directly install onto a disk for booting.

    Establish allows write to a local file but also the program will detect for local disks suitable for writing to. The auto-detection works quite well on FreeBSD, DragonFly BSD, OpenBSD and Linux.

    Once the write is complete a SHA256 checksum will be displayed for your convenience. On some operating systems disk buffering is required and thus implemented.
