Jordan Finnigan's ugly mug
My Face IRL


I’m Jordan, a 30-something developer living in Boise, Idaho. I currently write PHP, JavaScript, Go, and Rust. I enjoy playing board games, reading fantasy/technical books, and cooking.

What do I write about?

I write about a lot of things, including:

What is HXL?

There are two versions of this story: The first is something grand about HXL being a ‘hexel’, a new form of digital imaging. The second, the truth, is that hxl.io was the shortest domain I could find.

Helen: Speaking of children…
Frank: We weren’t speaking of children.
Helen: Oh, thank God.
