My name is Dave Hewitt. I am a programmer, Linux sysadmin, and computer security expert who lives in The Dalles, OR.

I care strongly about privacy and security which is why this site is run entirely from my own servers. Today, it is so easy to rely on third parties to provide various services, often for free. The cost to this is control and privacy.

I primarily use this site to host Nextcloud for my personal files and sharing with family and friends. I have full control of the servers hosting site, down to the metal. It is hosted across 3 computers that are literally sitting on my desk at my house.

If you're visiting this site, chances are I've shared a file with you. I also sync my calendar and contacts from Nextcloud to my phone. It's great to have easy access to all of my files from anywhere while knowing that they're not being inspected to sell advertisements or for more nefarious purposes.
