Hohokam is a Portland,
Oregon native who is about to turn 40. As a rapidly aging cyber
punk, he spends his free time working on tech projects around the
house, collecting records, and wandering aimlessly around the
internet. This site is a collection of his projects and ramblings.
Hohokam was first online through BBS's back in 1988, and was able
to talk his parents into getting him a modem. Playing around with
AoHell, he and
his friends thought they were super cool l33t h@ck3rz. He got
access to the web in 94 and never looked back. Do not get him
started on all the money he has spent on building computers, or
any other tech project he has worked on in his nerd cave.
Hohokam first cut his IT teeth working with the
computer departments of the Parkrose school system helping set up
the new high school building's network (ipx/spx. Netware!) for his
first summer job (also played a lot of Blood/Duke 3d death match
there). After college he worked on the deployment of a large data
center in The Dalles. Then he went to work on using off the shelf
tech kits to monitor the health of senior citizens in Oregon. He
currently works in healthcare IT. He probably has a professional
web page somewhere for people to look at.
He has a collection of Old Man hot takes about modern tech and
computing and will probably add them to the Blogs section at
some point. On the whole he thinks things are better now then 20
years ago, but wishes some features had survived to the modern
era. He does not think things were better when he was a kid.
He also likes the Metal Gear Solid series more than he should.
**--About This Site--**
This site is not a throwback to the web of 90s, although I do
like the style. I've played around with different CMS
platforms and found them pretty annoying. I tried Hugo style
markup pages, and I found them kind of annoying too. Simple static
sites load faster, are easier to maintain, and are simple to move
from web host to web host. I enjoy the process of making a static
HTML page in a WYSIWYG editor.
It is made with the SeaMonkey
HTML WYSIWYG Editor. The whoishohokam site has existed in some
from since 2015, and my personal sites go back to Geocities in the
90s. I regret every internet post I made between ages 12-29.
