Hayden's Piece of the Internet


Welcome!

I'm Hayden, and this is my homepage. I'm a computer science student and hobby sysadmin from New Brunswick, Canada.

Visit the most popular part of this site: My calculator collection!

My interests are broad, and I've dedicated pages on this site to a few of them. Things I enjoy include GNU/Linux, free-libre software, servers, learning German, electronics, collecting calculators and watches, 3D printing, and programming. I'm also a member of the International Society of Mad Scientists!

Apart from this site, I also run a tilde server at www.spacehippie.ca. Space Hippie offers tildes (HTTP, Gopher, and Gemini!), an IRC network, a wiki, games, and other services. Contact me if you'd like to join!

This site is self-hosted on a 4GB Raspberry Pi 4 model B, running Raspbian and Apache. It went live on 3 April 2020.

"Mit Hacken ist das wie mit dem Blues. Wer fragen muß, was Hacken ist, wird es nie verstehen. Hacken ist der kreative Umgang mit Technik. Hackern heißt, Sachen zu probieren, die noch keiner probiert hat." — Felix von Leitner (www.fefe.de)

Pages, ramblings, etc.

Here are some pages dedicated to my diverse interests, and sorted by category:

Keep up-to-date

You can stay up-to-date by adding the following RSS feeds to your news reader. RSS is better than social media because it delivers content straight to your reader with no ads, algorithms, or other brainwashing techniques.

Daily fortune!

Enjoy a randomly-generated fortune, updated automatically each morning:

Will Rogers, having paid too much income tax one year, tried in vain to claim a rebate. His numerous letters and queries remained unanswered. Eventually the form for the next year's return arrived. In the section marked "DEDUCTIONS," Rogers listed: "Bad debt, US Government -- $40,000."

Fortunes are generated by the server each day at 06:00 local (New Brunswick, Canada) time using the BSD fortune command and a cron job. The output file is here.

Links and Stickers

Here are some 88x31 buttons, which link to sites I enjoy. I don't own these designs (except for those linking to my sites - I made those ones).
