I am Adrien (aka statox), a server software engineer at Dashlane in Paris, France.
This website is just a place for me to talk a bit about my side projects and keep a few notes for myself. You will find stuff about the topics that I like (in no particular order): Vim, Linux and system administration, doing fun simulations and games in the browser, DIY projects, improving people's privacy on the internet and software development in general.
You can email me at

Because I want to be able to know how many people read my rambling I use an analytics platform on this website.
However I think the fight for a more privacy friendly internet is one of the most important to lead currently. That's why I use goatcounter: It is an amazing privacy friendly tool which does nothing else than counting how many time my pages are loaded. So no cookie 🍪 for you on this site, nor any other invasive tracking method.
Edit December 2021 I am experimenting with the different tools offered by cloudflare to proxy this website and they inject trackers in my pages. I'm still figuring out if that brings me enough value or if that contributes to the surveillance economy more than I'm confortable with. I'll update this when I make a decision.
My professional experience is mainly focused on backend development: Maintaining and developing infrastructures at scale is a fascinating topic for me, however I'm less used to frontend development. So when I started creating a website I wanted it to be dead simple so that I get things done quickly and without friction. That's why I chose to use eleventy a simpler static site generator.
And as I'm not exactly a css expert and wanted something simpler than bootstrap I went with newcss a very simple css framework.
