8,000 blog posts!?

Internet

This silly milestone aside, wc(1) reports I’ve also written 881,118 words. That’s delightful.

I started this blog as a teenager in late 2004, and it’s among the longest-running projects I’ve ever maintained. Sitting in a coffee shop in my thirties writing it, and reviewing back at home, it doesn’t seem real.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my disparate ramblings, whether you’re a new arrival or someone who’s been coming back for years. You don’t know how much it means to me. 💙

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.

You can leave me a comment by contacting me, and I might publish your thoughts. Please read the FAQs first though.

If you found this post helpful or entertaining, you can shout me a coffee or buy some silly merch. Thanks!
