Welcome to my home page.

What's here

Commonly used commands are burned in my memory, but the less common ones (e.g. during bring-up of a new box) are a pain to search for each time.

So here are notes I've collected over time on various things that interest me.

Tech Notes

One-liners for a variety of tools I use regularly.. Linux, openssl and so on.

Book Notes

Here is a list of books read per year, starting November 2019.

I'm a voracious reader but I can't recollect stuff all that great. I'm trying to take notes for some books that are worthy of revisits.


Here are some notes and links I've collected in topics that interest me. Several are works in progress: I'm yet to move my large collection of bookmarks to these sections.

Role Models

Some heroes that I look up to, in the tech and literary worlds mostly.


I have an XBox One S, a PS Vita, a Nintendo 3DS and I used to game on my PC. These days the Xbox is the only one that gets any play time.

Here is a list of what I have, what I want and what I've liked so far.

In Progress

Some in-progress notes topics of study.
