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.

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.
