Howdy, I'm Wes.

I'm a geek that likes making things with computers. Passionate about the web, I've been programming online and off for the last ten years.

Here's some stuff I've recently written:

Blog

Dual Booting

I recently installed Solus as a dual OS to Windows 10. While I often use Linux for servers, I hadn’t used it as a desktop OS in years. I hoped to gain experience by using it as my daily driver, with a fallback to Windows for games or specialized software.

Homestead

One of the things I love about Minecraft is how open its modding community is. Despite the game never being designed for it, a vibrant modding ecosystem has emerged upon which thousands of mods have been developed.

Web of Trust

I’ve been using the excellent KeePass password manager for many years. It helps me keep track of hundreds of passwords with various sites and services. It syncs securely through Dropbox so I can manage my accounts from all connected devices. It’s a great tool that I would (and do) recommend to everybody.

Projects

Nutrition

I recently finished my second Minecraft mod, titled Nutrition.

Watering Cans

Watering Cans is a mod written for Minecraft. It adds 4 types of watering cans to help speed up early-game farming.

GameDeal Hunt

GameDeal Hunt was an Easter egg hunt thought up by myself and the other /r/GameDeals mods. The idea was to create a series of puzzles for the community which let them win prizes for completion.
