About the Author
I'm Stephan, a Linux user with a passion for open-source, UI/UX design, and exploring what makes fiction work.
In my spare time, I focus on (and write about):
- Programming (mainly in Python and Rust)
- Retrocomputing (mostly DOS)
- Reading and Reviewing Fiction
- The odd bit of UI/UX design or literary theory

Just a quick status update. I’ve done some significant re-theming on http://www.ficfan.org/ and fixed a bug that was causing many of the quotes to not show their additional metadata. While doing so, I noticed that, because of how wp-lifestream caches … Continue reading
