Programming

One of my most productive days was throwing away 1000 lines of code.

DTrace: Instruction-level dynamic tracing

Music

I mainly play guitar and a few other stringed instruments.

Below is a list of (published) projects I’ve worked on:

Defilade
My dead band. It started as a solo project in 2016 when I bought my first sound card and proper studio headphones, so that I could record music that didn’t sound like it was recorded with a Fisher-Price cassette recorder. The songs were all written and recorded before the band was formed, so we didn’t get the chance to write new songs as a band, except for one or two drafts. Compared to my other musical projects, this one has been quite “successful”, but nowadays I’m not really interested in working on it.
Friend
A Slovak friend of mine’s collective project I took part in. Here is a previous project of his.
Socrates Slit His Throat
A neighbor’s project I wrote parts and produced songs for. He now has a new post-rock project going on.

History

World History Daily
A history page I created a few years ago.

Why study history? What’s the point? It’s boring!
