About me

Hi, I'm Ben. I am interested in computers, history, and music.


Computers are my main interest these days, and so this site is mostly based around that interest. I run Parabola GNU/Linux-Libre on my laptop and Arch Linux on my desktop. In terms of programming, I enjoy writing software that makes my life easier, whether it be in shell or in C. Those are my preferred programming languages. I use Vim as my text editor and st as my terminal emulator. dwm is my window manager. All have slight modifications. My shell is bash, but I have /bin/sh symlinked to dash so all my scripts do certainly run in dash or any other POSIX-compliant shell.


World War II has almost always been my preferred era of history to learn about.


I used to create music using FL Studio. Not so much anymore, though. I am a fan of Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, and The Smiths.
