Hayden's Piece of the Internet


Welcome!

Me at the Trevi Fountain
in Rome, 2020-03-06

I'm Hayden, and this is my homepage. I'm a computer science student and hobby sysadmin from New Brunswick, Canada.

My interests are broad, and I've dedicated pages on this site to a few of them. Things I enjoy include GNU/Linux, free-libre software, servers, learning German, electronics, collecting calculators and watches, 3D printing, and programming. I'm also a member of the International Society of Mad Scientists!

Apart from this site, I also run a tilde server at www.spacehippie.ca. Space Hippie offers tildes (HTTP, Gopher, and Gemini!), an IRC network, a wiki, games, and other services. Contact me if you'd like to join!

This site is self-hosted on a 4GB Raspberry Pi 4 model B, running Raspbian and Apache. It went live on 3 April 2020.

"Mit Hacken ist das wie mit dem Blues. Wer fragen muß, was Hacken ist, wird es nie verstehen. Hacken ist der kreative Umgang mit Technik. Hackern heißt, Sachen zu probieren, die noch keiner probiert hat." — Felix von Leitner (www.fefe.de)

Pages, ramblings, etc.

Here are some pages dedicated to my diverse interests, and sorted by category:

Keep up-to-date

You can stay up-to-date by adding the following RSS feeds to your news reader. RSS is better than social media because it delivers content straight to your reader with no ads, algorithms, or other brainwashing techniques.

Daily fortune!

A "critic" is a man who creates nothing and thereby feels qualified to judge the work of creative men. There is logic in this; he is unbiased -- he hates all creative people equally. -- Robert Heinlein
