I'm an aerospace engineer living on Vancouver Island and passionate about hardware hacking, cryptography, elections integrity, World War II combat flight simulators, and ultimate frisbee.
When COVID happened I figured like most people that it wouldn't be such a long haul. I learned to cook the 5 mother sauces and played a lot of video games. As the pandemic and lockdowns stretched on I figured I'd start blogging about things that interest me. This is my personal combination blog/notebook where I gradually collect articles that I write about topics that interest me that may or may not have any value to anyone else.
This is a living notebook, kinda like a zettelkasten but without the hype. You might encounter broken links and spelling mistakes because I'm always updating and editing.
