Welcome to kassy.neocities.org. This is the main page.

hi. the site is pretty new, and largely under construction now, but a couple of pages already work as intended. it's probably going to be home to any and all trash, random screenshots, images saved from imageboards, anime pictures, some webpages that had an influence on me, some webpages that had no influence on me, my opinions or just thoughts which i for some reason didn't just dump on anonymous imageboards, etc.

General info that is supposed to give this site more context and maybe convince you to not close the tab

my name's Kassy, but I go by a plethora of aliases on the Wired.

i like functional programming (lisp & haskell, with skills in the latter being shit right now; currently looking for a project to immerse myself in to improve said skills), gnu/linux (update: BSDs are cool too) and free/libre/opensource software, existentialist philosophy (or maybe continental in general? I'm interested in it, but haven't really gotten deep yet), mathematics, [old] internet culture, NLP (as in the artificial intelligence field...), music (mostly listening; but I play guitar sometimes), anime and manga, photography, solitude, low-tech/minimalist lifestyle and so on.

i've also been trying to exit modernity as of late, and replacing all the useless messengers/social media with an email and a website seemed like a good enough step to take. let's see how it goes.

besides all that, i've been experiencing a bit of a cognitive dissonance since reading ISAIF and a couple of other things which make me feel like no-tech life is the way to go. i love the internet and computers tenderly, but it's hard to deny i might have been a lot healthier, calmer, and happier if i didn't use it (and in general computers) so much or didn't use it at all. Industrial Revolution and its consequences, I guess.

anyways, i'm not planning on abandoning the internet entirely right now, since there still are lots of things to learn and a tremendous amount of interesting people to talk to. one of them might be you, by the way!

the general style of the website might be your cup of tea, or it might not. anyway, there's no javascript on this website, and it should work in any browser (including old and text ones) as I tried to make it as minimal and basic as possible.

but in the event something breaks, or you disagree with me on some matter, or you just want to chat, here are my contact details:

email! and XMPP: Execute echo aXdha3VyYS50b21va29AZGlzcm9vdC5vcmc= | base64 -d in a Unix-like shell to get my JID & email address. And here's my PGP key (for email), my OMEMO fingerprint (for XMPP).

Email is preferred for slower non-instant communication with more substance, and XMPP is for shorter messages.

Languages I consider myself fluent in include English, Ukrainian, and Russian, you can also write in German or Japanese but then you'll get lots of broken grammar from me - I'm just learning those and am not very successful at it (yet).
