About This Site

This site is hosted on my own server, which is a machine I hacked together from some random components--a 4790K, 16GB of DDR3, SSD storage. The server runs Arch Linux, which was probably a bad idea, but it hasn't caused any problems yet. It serves content through an apache webserver, and has a pretty simple backend: I use PHP for templating, CSS for styling, and no JavaScript at all. The server supports HTTPS using Let's Encrypt. If you're curious about anything here, you can email me at kai@kaistevenson.com.

This site is a member of the Null Webring, which I helped to create.

About Me

As previously stated, my name is Kai Stevenson. I don't really like doing the whole biography thing, but here's a quick summary: I was born (and still live) in Victoria, BC, Canada. I went to school briefly but dropped out in grade 1 due to extreme boredom, and pursued my interests with the support of my family. As a result, I had an early start on some things--I started programming in C at around 7. I took one course at my local public high school in grade 9, and then elected to attend a private school full time for grades 10-12. I pursued accelerated entry into the University of Victoria during my last year, taking an intro to micro-economics class while finishing up my high school courses. After graduating, I was accepted into UVic social sciences.

Also, I have some opinions about some things. Wrong though they may sometimes be, they are--I hope--reflective of my character. To that end, the writing page of my website is an attempt to collate some of my thoughts. Maybe it will be of interest to you.


No. If you want to support me, contribute to one of my programming projects, or just write me a nice email.
