Hi, I’m Chris Blankenship, the guy whose website this is. It’s mostly a place for me to rant blog about what’s on my mind, which is mostly technology but is sometimes other things.

I graduated from the University of Mary Washington in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and I currently work as a SysAdmin at Reclaim Hosting. All that means is I’m good okay at using Linux. It does not mean I know how to fix your printer. Please don’t ask me to fix your printer. I don’t know how to fix your printer. No one does. Anyone who says they do is lying to you.

Prior to working as a SysAdmin I worked as a Public Computer Assistant at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library where I mostly fixed printers.

I’ve been making music since the early 2010s, some of which I have not actively tried to scrub from the internet. I previously played bass guitar in Skumboyz (until our indefinite hiatus in 2020), and currently play bass guitar in Toxitolerant. I also have a solo thing, Einzige, where I make electronic-ish music.

Sometimes I also write stuff.

I was ordained with the Church of the SubGenius (praise “Bob”) sometime around May 2014, so I’ve got that whole legally ordained minister thing going for me as well.

Did I mention that I was vegan?
