About this site

This is a basic IndieWeb site.

In addition to its canonical url, a “rough draft” of this website also exists on my Tildeverse page. This site’s content also appears on my Gemini capsule.

For more information about the site, its design, and available feeds: see the “meta” section.


Here’s a selection of my best articles, in featured order. To see the rest, visit my Articles page.

I edit some of these articles quite often; some are updated indefinitely. Check the “updated” timestamps.

Timestamp format: YYYY-MM-DD, as per RFC 3339 and ISO 8601. Sorted newest to oldest.

    About 23 thousand words; a very long read

    3192 words; a read


This site is part of 17 webrings. A webring is a collection of sites in a circular doubly-linked list; each website links to the next and previous site in the list.
