I am a homelabber, datahoarder, and general computer enthusiast.
After 15 years of programming, I still consider computers to be magic. There is no limit on what we can make them do. The hard part, I've found, is to figure out just the right incantation.
I spend a lot of my time trying to make life better for myself and others. Less typing, less clicking, less time waiting for the magic box. My driving philosophy is that if you click a single button and don't get your final result immediately, there's room for improvement. Even better if the button click can be removed too.
