Hi! I'm M@ (Matthew Duane Hardcastle), a Software Developer located in Raleigh, North Carolina. I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in the 1980's and spent the 2010's in San Francisco, California. I currently build developer tools for a Silicon Valley startup. Before that I was
In my spare time I develop apps for macOS, hangout with my kids and wife, and play with radio; my callsign is KQ4MPS.
If you'd like to get in touch with me, I'm a huge fan of email, and you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach me on Jabber/XMPP at email@example.com.
This site contains information about me and my interests. It's deliberately anti-fancy. No shade on fancy websites. In my opinion, the default presentation of HTML in a web browser is charming. I also find comfort knowing the site will render fine in browsers from Mosaic 0.5, released in 1993, to the current version of Safari.
My goal is that every page on this website should download in under ten second on a 9600 baud modem. In other words the HTML and graphics for any page wont be more than 10 KB. Believe it or not, some modern computer enthusiasts still use 9600 baud modems. I'm thinking of you packet radio friends.
