About

To live is to learn, and to learn is to live.

I started this website during the Corona virus pandemic because I didn’t want to waste all of my time browsing the web, shopping on Amazon, and watching Netflix – all of which I love. I saw the lock-down as an opportunity for betterment; I wanted to do the things for myself and learn things that I never had the time for (or at least the things I used that excuse for), and come out of the lock-down better than going in.

Building a website wasn’t one of those things on my to-do list – although I have built one in the past and have kept the domain alive through the years that it’s been dormant. What rekindled my interest in doing so was when I stumbled upon an article about the Raspberry Pi while searching for a way to block ads on YouTube and CBC on my TV.

You know how the Internet works. From one web page, you go to another, then another, then another, and before you know it, how-to-ad-block became how-to-build-your-own-ad-blocking-VPN-Homebridge-server-and-host-your-own-website. That is not an actual article, yet, by the way, which is why I started this website – to write a single tutorial to build that server. Beyond that, I plan to share tidbits that I learn in life, hopefully to inspire you or save you from making the same mistakes that I’ve made.

Instead of writing about myself, you can get to know me through the things I write about.
