My name is Chad, but online I go by Charims. I write code and I automate things. I have two little girls and a beautiful wife. I run ArchLinux with SwayWM. I stand for privacy. I have nearly de-googled my life, and have a hard focus on on self-hosting; especially when its federated. You can find me on Matrix or send me an email Chad@hirsch.host.
You will also find me on the fediverse at https://social.pcwideopen.com/charims.
Here is a short list of things I self-host:
- Email (postifx, dovecot, etc)
- Matrix reference server Synapse
- Pleroma (Mastodon alternative server)
- postgres (My favorite database)
Some of my skills:
- Linux Administration
- Application building and packaging (rpm, deb, pacman)
- Building “Scalable” architectures
- Data retention/compression and archiving
- Analog to Digital media conversion, archiving
