About Me

Hi! I'm Alex. I'm a software engineer living near Boston, MA. My current technical interests include operating systems, developer tooling, and small internet protocols like Gopher, but I'm constantly learning new things that I get excited about. Occasionally, I might write about it here on my blog.

Outside of tech, I enjoy playing music, hiking, and a good board game shared among friends.

About This Site

This site is an ever-changing hobby project where I use the markup and build system as an excuse to learn and/or build new tools.

In 2020, I rewrote the site as a series of man-pages in mdoc(7), writing new blog posts in the language and developing a toolchain to support feeds, text-only versions, and eventually a gopher mirror.

At the end of 2021, I really wanted a lower-friction medium to blog on (akin to the plaintext I was writing on my phlog). Looking to keep the site buildable by base OpenBSD as a creative limitation, I took the opportunity to write my own lightweight markup parser, nihdoc. Stay tuned for more!
