Hi, I’m Eric or @cyanbane, I have been writing on the internet since before the “internet”

When I was 12, I started my first BBS and started interacting with others on what would eventually become the web today. Door games, hacking and phreaking texts, warez, gamez, and ASCII Art were fantastic and hooked me from a young age. I eventually took up Visual Basic 6 to create a Dungeons & Dragons character generator, and here I am 30 years later, still loving coding. I am a coder by trade and have had this blog for over two decades. It has evolved over time and interests, and I have found myself multiple times just canning all of it and going back and starting it fresh. The site you are viewing now is probably about my 30th iteration, and welcome to it.

This iteration of the blog is written in React using Next.js. Most of the styling comes from Tailwind and is hosted up at Vercel ( thanks guys! ). It is also a vehicle for me to get some more practice using those technologies, so if you see anything broken - let me know.
