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 "Perl 6 nightly Docker images".

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.

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.
