About me

Freedom-focused hacker. I love everything about free software, and spend much time contributing to it myself. I occasionally write articles to help other people getting started with free software, and show the issues with proprietary software. I'm Active on a number of IRC channels, spread over multiple IRC networks. Currently I have made over 10 modules for Perl 6, which are all available on CPAN. I also write a blog post on occasion, with my latest write-up being "Hackerrank solutions: Python 3 and Perl 6 (part 1)".

If you think what I'm doing is awesome, and want to support me, you can do so through donations. More information about how to donate and what I do with the donations I receive can be found on the support page.

Contact

PGP

My public PGP key is available from my own site, or from a public key server such as pgp.mit.edu. The fingerprint is:

1660 F6A2 DFA7 5347 322A  4DC0 7A6A C285 E2D9 8827

OTR

For instant messaging I use OTR where possible. My fingerprints are the following:

Channels

Email

Email contact goes via p.spek@tyil.work. Be sure to at least sign all mail you send me. Even better would be encrypted mail using my PGP key.

I do not read my mailboxes very often, so please do not expect a timely response. If you require a response as soon as possible, please find me on IRC instead.

IRC

I am mainly active as tyil on Freenode. Other networks I frequent are DareNET and Rizon, using the same nick, tyil. I use OTR for private messages on IRC, so be sure you use this if you want to discuss something in private.

Mastodon

I am on Mastodon, as @tyil@mastodon.social. I generally preach about free software and Perl 6, and announce articles from myself and others that I find interesting.

XMPP

I am available via XMPP/Jabber on tyil@national.shitposting.agency. Like IRC, be sure to have OTR enabled if you wish to talk to me. Since my XMPP chats go via BitlBee, the response time is about the same as via IRC.
