Hi! I’m Daniel. I’m a professional software developer and an amateur chess player (class F) living in Michigan.

I primarily work with C# and SQL, but also PowerShell, Bash, HTML, CSS, Progress OpenEdge, and (very occasionally) JavaScript. I also consider myself an “advanced” Git user.

I have a strong interest in computing history, especially UNIX history. I enjoy watching and reading science fiction (yes, especially Star Trek) and superhero media. Less frequently, I also play video games (turn-based strategy, puzzle/RPG), play go (the board game), and build model Gundams.

About this blog

I also enjoy writing. This blog is a place where I can write—on my own schedule, about anything that may pique my interest. It may not always be the most original content, but that’s okay.

I post, sporadically, about neat things that I’ve learned, books that I’ve read, and TV shows and movies that I’ve watched. Ideally, I’d post once every month or two, but so far it’s worked out to more like twice a year. I hope to take things up a bit in the near future, but I’m not making any promises.

I have no comments section and no analytics, by choice—I write this blog for the fun of it, and I don’t want concern over pageviews (or the lack thereof) getting in the way. However, if you like what I write, I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to send me an email or say hi on Mastodon.
