I’m Piper (she/they), a software engineer by trade, computer tinkerer & entrepreneur by hobby, and master of sprouting strange new interests. I usually use this blog to write about things I’ve done that seem somewhat noteworthy, but sometimes other topics might find their way in here.
What do I do for fun?⌗
My persistent interests tend to be related to one of these broad topics:
- Computer Networking
- Data Hoarding
Currently, there are a few technologies that really have my interest:
- The Rust programming language
- The Nix package manager and NixOS operating system
- The Datomic database
- The art of data hoarding
- Home networking, though my home network has probably progressed far beyond what one would typically put under “home networking.”
What do I do for work?⌗
Where else can you find my writing?⌗
I’m still working on finding some of my old writing that I’m proud of and moving it over to this blog. Here’s a collection of some of my writing that’s still available across the web.
What’s the tech behind this blog?⌗
This blog is actually hosted in my utility room closet! I have gigabit internet at home, so I figured I might as well just run my personal blog from home. It’s a Hugo static site built using Nix and served up using Nginx on NixOS, and connected to the outside world through a Cloudflare Tunnel, meaning I don’t need to worry about NAT, port forwarding, DDoSes, or anything else of the sort.
Who made that profile picture?⌗
I commissioned it from Nathan Butler (@xXacidnekoXx on Twitter - fair warning, he posts some not-safe-for-work content) a while back!
