About me

Hello there!

I'm Filipe Rodrigues (IPA: /fi.ˈli.pɘ rʊ.ˈdri.ɡəʒ/). I was born in the very-late-80s in Portugal, where I still live. I don't take myself very seriously, nor should you!

On the internet, and often AFK, I usually go by "shello"(IPA: /ˈʃɛ.lːo/), the handle I've used since the early 2000s.

I spend probably too much of my own time among computers, but I'm also paid for doing that, working mostly on back-end web development.

On the technology front, the topics I like to explore, and hold firm opinions on (ranging from educated to laughably informed) are UNIX-like systems, scripting, security, and programming habits.

Beyond computers and technology, my interests span sciences, electronics, visual arts, puzzles, and nature. Some of them make part of my pastimes.

I'm a lover of furry friends like ferrets, otters, hedgehogs and owls—but I'm not a guardian to any animal.


You can find a list of web places I frequent on the home page.

If you care, my PGP public key (keyserver) has the fingerprint AC52 27BB DC25 CB68 E541 BEBB D284 90BC FBFA AEAD.
