Hi, I'm Ryan Casalino.🖖
I'm a programmer that's more of a rambler in the groves of academe than a serious student. I read comparatively little. I try to understand as best I can most everything I put my mind to. I more often than not come up short. I feel we can sometimes enter a boring tranquility of sorts wherein little is ventured and much less else is gained. In the realm of $WORK, I tend to fallback to intellectually certified individuals:
The most effective debugging tool is still careful thought, coupled with judiciously placed print statements.
The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination.
Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.
A static site generator written in Python that was used for this website.
Not yet completed "Newspaper for the masses" which will likely cost five cents a week. I hope.
I read the Wiki Way recently (2020) and I wanted to see if I could get something hosted. I learned some stuff about Perl along the way. Nothing much has happened since. Please, contribute a page!
A few of (maybe) useful scripts.

Tools I use (and like)

- FreeBSD - used as a desktop machine.
- Numerous Raspberry Pis for a multitude of personal projects (they're great fun!)
- I self-host this and other websites on those credit card sized servers using nginx and apache.
If you got down here...thanks for stopping by!
