Hello visitor. Welcome to dr0.ch, my home on the World Wide Web since 2020 (although I have been keeping a personal website running since way back in 1997).

If you are looking for my Linux guide, you can find it here.

My photographs are here.

Funnily enough, droch means "bad" or "evil" in Scottish Gaelic and Old Irish. This is unintended.
