This is a small blog where I talk about tech, from servers to CNC. That is all.


I’m an occasional systems administrator who prefers self hosting over pay hosting or many ad driven services. I’m also a Java developer and engineer with a background in 3d design and an interest in 3d printing, lasers, etc. I also have no idea how to blog.
