“Probabilities collapse. I become increasingly unlikely.”

Robert Charles Wilson, “Divided by Infinity”

From Minnesota, via California, now New York. I’m always learning, and I often think most things should slow down a little, though I’m still working on that practice for myself. I’ve been a tech nerd since my teens in the 1990s, but didn’t begin to take it seriously until around 2009.

I’m now a Desktop Systems Analyst with a large global law firm, involved in desktop & mobile security, testing, deployment, and 3rd tier user support.

This site is hosted on on a plucky Raspberry Pi 4 running Ubuntu Linux, Pi-Hole, and LXD. Containerized, I also host Miniflux, Gitea, Paperless, ZNC, The Lounge, BicBucStriim, calibre-web, and Droppy — with some help from Syncthing. On a beefier server I run ZFS, Plex, and Airsonic.

I’m very lucky to have some super amazing people in my life, always reminding me of how little I know, enabling beautiful experiences, and appreciating places and systems I otherwise wouldn’t give a second thought to.
