"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."

I'd like to be full of God's grace and to write graceful code.

I like to program using C, Go and Perl languages and also sometimes Python, JS and Rust.

some projects

  • openbsd on e

    EFL and Enlightenment on OpenBSD.

  • Contributing to and working on:

  • dropsy which is a file backup/distribution tool.
  • Open-source dropbox-like server/client.

    Hopefully bringing nice GUIs soon.

  • synthropy which is a music synthesizer.

    Here's an example recording: example.wav

  • 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.

  • raspberry pri

    turn your Pi into a WAP with support for content filtering and Tor.

  • blingbling theme for e21+ this is a slow process and might never finish but it's okay for now bringing that retro pre e17 feel back to the desktop.

  • bsd_sensors_misc

    Some sensors tools useful for status lines on FreeBSD, DragonFly BSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD. Includes tmux.conf with status line code.


everyone wants to be different, until they are different!

dear youth, don't be cool!

brush your teeth and shave in the shower or bath!

bring and read technical manuals when you visit the toilet!

I cannot believe how happy I am to still be alive!
