Hello, my name is Dan.
I am a software engineer, mathematics lover, radio ham and musician.
I work remotely to care for my future wife, Tsumiki.
I also enjoy discordant and nonsensical commentary.
I can speak about maths, physics, computer science and linguistics at length.

Both my physical and mental health are very low at the moment, but I am always more than happy to talk about them.
I think I'm addicted to caffeine, which I wouldn't recommend.
I have been diagnosed with the following things, both physical and mental intermingling:
Mathematics has always been a great pastime for me.
I have invented quite a few visualisations and generators for several interesting pieces of mathematics, some of which you can see and try on repos like my projects repo on GitHub
Some notable (read: working right now) examples are:
My current OEIS contributions are:
This website entailed a few design and code decisions which I would like to explain.
The layout was based on Bootstrap. I kept the header component and chose to be without a footer component. The menus are actually a hack, such that the chosen menu item is linked to a hidden radio button which chose which sub-page to show, rather than using JS for the menu.
The code actually contains no client-side JS at all, therefore, also adding to the preference of more and more users these days to not have tracking. The website code is compiled using the Pug layout engine, and uploaded to GitHub Pages. It uses my custom website theme which is published under the JolHarg organisation.
The font choice was difficult to make, as I was (and am still not quite happy enough with it, and so therefore still am) looking for a suitable, free software natural sans-serif font style, which has the single-storey "a", non-looped "g", and the double-seriffed I and J amongst other things. For now I've settled on Caudex, which whilst it is still serif, seems to be the closest I've yet to come across.
