Vell, Zaphod’s just zis guy, you know?
        - Gag Halfrunt, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

…except that I’m not Zaphod Beeblebrox. I’m Alex.

I do a bunch of random nonsense like play music (“rock” guitar, bass, and vocals), computer stuff (full-stack development, cloud engineering, Linux), cook (bachelor haute cuisine, Sunday meal prep, mixology), and be a full-bore hipster (obscure synthpop and Dad rock, minimalist/barefoot running, mechanical watches). I no longer have social media outside of LinkedIn so this blog is a dumping ground for longer-form versions of what I would’ve put on Facebook years ago. My aim is to balance my self-indulgence with my perception of what others will find useful; I hope something on this site tickles your fancy.
