This is taricorp.net, dumping grounds of the ideas, thoughts, and random musings of myself, Peter Marheine. The navigation links to the right list the site’s main categories:
Home - the main page, with listings of all the latest activity.
About - this page!
Projects - repository of various projects of mine, particularly hardware and software development.
Muse - the place for more meaningful articles and thoughts- as in the blog, but more complete.
Contact - a way to contact me, should you have no other way to do so.
Mentioned above, I’m Peter Marheine. As of the fall of 2009, I am studying for a BS in Computer Engineering at Michigan Technological University, with a primary focus of embedded systems design and programming. Outside of my studies, I do a variety of technology-related things, mostly involving some sort of programming. The notable (and somewhat complete) ones can be found in the projects sections of this site.
My PGP public key is available on this site, at /pmarheine.asc (ID DF2157CD, fingerprint 7F62 ECC0 B2FE 8E57 4DAC E707 7DDD 3675 DF21 57CD, externally verifiable with this tweet). A copy of my resumé, among other things, is available at me.taricorp.net.
Around the web
There are a number of other places I can be found around the web, usually going by the alias of ‘tari’ or some variant thereof. Some of the more notable places I can be found:
Some of my personal programs have repositories over on Bitbucket.
I lurk on some technology forums with a slant towards programming Texas Instruments graphing calculators (the platform which I got my start programming on). See Cemetech for the main one.
I know these people and have some interest in what they have to say:
Nick ‘in beta’ does the occasional bit of interesting and a lot of web design.
Jon ‘Jonimus’ mucks about with open source software a good amount.
Points of interest
Some of the places I pay attention to but don’t necessarily interact with in any tangible way:
** Ars Technica ** - mostly tech-related news and the occasional opinion piece.
** Boing Boing ** - wonderful things and the occasional bit of news.
** Hack a Day ** - creating and tweaking (mostly) electronics.
I like having data on what people are looking for on the site and what’s useful, so I use self-hosted Piwik for analytics, which doesn’t share your visit information with parties that use it for potentially nefarious purposes.
