Hayden's Piece of the Internet

Welcome!

I'm Hayden, and this is my homepage. I'm a student from New Brunswick, Canada. My interests are broad, and I've dedicated pages on this site to a few of them.

I've always been a fan of computers, which ultimately led me to set up a server in my bedroom, which hosts this site as well as some other services for my friends and me. Doing this has been a learning experience, and has given me independence from the clutches of big tech. If you have any questions, comments, or cataclysms, contact me.

I support the Free Software Foundation. If you purchase a membership with this link, it will let them know that I referred you!

I am a member of the International Society of Mad Scientists.

This server hosts an IRC network! Click here or direct your IRC client to port 6667 at irc.spacehippie.ca and join channel #general.


Pages, ramblings, etc.

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

"Why the simple site?"

Valid CSS!

A simple website is an act of civil disobedience against modern JavaScript bloat. It also looks cool.

This page is written in standard, validated HTML5 and CSS. It's also designed to render well without CSS, and to be mobile-friendly. If the page appears broken or the formatting looks off, it would be appreciated if you'd report it by contacting me.
