Hi, I’m K Gopal Krishna
Welcome to my landing page! I’m a fellow Linux sysadmin trying to be a devops. The other interest that I am defined by is my love for cinema. My pronoun is he.
You can reach out to me on these platforms:
People I follow ↩︎
Here are a few people whose writing interests me, listed alphabetically:
I got to know Amolith through his fantastic website, NixNet where he hosts a variety of open source software, free for anyone to use. His RSS Bridge has been particularly helpful for subscribing to people I know on non-free networks like Twitter or Instagram.
I met Sanchita in 2020 at a film festival. We talked about the movies we had seen and debated on the inter-section of genre and subgenre, and discovered that we had similar taste in cinema. Soon I found out she writes wonderful poetry and I have been a fan since.
Drew is notorious for writing very well-thought out articles on software to churning out flame-bait, both of which I am a fan of.
Places I write ↩︎
I haven’t written about films in a long time. My prime seemed to be the first three reviews you’d find on the site about Hong Sang-soo. That was back in 2017. I try to scribble something now but find myself failing in the first paragraph itself. This might be because I do not feel confident about the existing workflow which makes me think my writing will not scale. It is likely to change once I move the blog to wordpress.
I recently started writing some technical content which I’ve thought of starting from sophomore year at college. Months of procrastination and pushing myself later, I finally have something worthwhile to show. This blog will consist of content surrounding privacy, software, hardware, stories / experiences, guides / tutorials, etc. I have been trying to write one blog post per day but I’m sure the pace will slacken as I get older.
I host a few services that you may find useful. For private services, send me a text via email or telegram to get an account.

This website is made with:
- WordPress, which is a great CMS for people who don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of web design and also for the lazy such as myself who prefer to spend the time doing something else. I’ve already written about my reasoning for choosing WP.
- Gutenberg, the block editor, which is great for easily chaining together multiple elements into a group with a simple drag and drop of the cursor.
- Twenty Twenty-One, the default theme for this year which, much like its predecessor, makes for a great starting point for your own variance of the design.
- Twentig, a plugin which highly extends the feature set provided by all the tools above.
