Moving to Grav4>
Up until now on my Yunohost server I have been running the officially provided Wordpress install.
Over time I have become progressively less satisified with it. Wordpress is big, clunky, and slow. And is far too much for me and my little blog. However I didn't want to go all the way down to a st...
Getting started with Rust FFI4>
Rust is a fantastic systems level programming language known for it's memory safety and painless concurrency. But as a relatively new language it can sometimes lack mature libraries for various tasks.
One common way to solve that is to use Foreign-Function-Interfaces (FFI) to call code from anoth...

How Piracy in the 2000s caused Netflix and Spotify
This is a copy of an essay wrote for the IT & Society course I am taking at RPI and as such is formatted as one with citations.

npm, am well versed in the HTML/CSS/JS trinity, etc.
And until now I can't rightfully say that I truly enjoy webdev. Sure the feedback loop of code...
Welcome to the new and hopefully improved Rushsteve.us! Instead of being a hodgepodge collection of Docker containers tied together by a reverse proxy, this site is now a single YunoHost deployment. This gives us lots of fun stuff like built in email and LDAP single-sign-on (something I have wanted...
Hidden Gems of Anime4>
With all the anime there is out there it can be hard to find new things to watch, and over time I have had to dig deeper and deeper to find things that I think I will like.
