Online Handle: Seirdy
Welcome to my page on the tildeverse, a bunch of *nix computers that let people sign up for shell accounts. A typical shell account features clients for IRC and email, common terminal/commandline utilities, and (most importantly) web hosting. Read about the tildeverse’s origins, learn more, pick a tilde and get started.
This page is all I’ve got for now; I plan to set up a static-site-generator to build this site properly, with a blog and RSS feed. Generating versions for Gemini and Gopher is a must because the web is increasingly terrible.
I’ll also eventually mirror my tildeverse pages to my own domain (seirdy.one). Tildeverse pages will serve as a “rough draft”.

Interests, preferences, et cetera
I ought to come up with more interests than these, but that sounds hard.
The word “free” in “free software” refers to freedom, not price. I recommend looking it up if you aren’t familiar.
I lean towards simplicity; I usually prefer CLIs that follow the UNIX philosophy over TUIs, and TUIs over GUIs. If a piece of software is complex enough to require a funding round, I would rather avoid it. There are exceptions, of course: I use a Linux distro with Systemd (Fedora), after all.
Some software I use: Fedora, Alpine Linux, SwayWM, Pandoc, mpv, mpd, Minetest, Neovim, tmux, newsboat, WeeChat, and zsh.
More information is available in my dotfiles repo; check its README.
I watch anime. Some of my favorites, in no particular order:
- Code Geass
- Mawaru Penguindrum
- No Game No Life: Zero
- Black Lagoon
- Ascendance of a Bookworm
- Saga of Tanya the Evil
- Attack on Titan
I’ve put together a periodically-updated list of tracks that I’ve rated 8/10 or higher in my mpd stickers database, auto-generated by a collection of shell scripts. I’m a fan of glitch, trailer music, and symphonic and power metal; I’ve also recently been getting into Japanese rock thanks to a few anime openings. Some of my favorite artists are The Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, Beats Antique, Hammerfall, Badflower, Celldweller/Scandroid, Helloween, Two Steps from Hell, Nightwish, Mili, and MYTH & ROID.
