Welcome to Benjamin Brown's Arctic Nexus

Welcome to my neck of the web.

I have a lot of hobbies. I do photography, I draw, I like to code, I'm working on a game, and I'm a full-time student on top of it all. I know I'm not particularly amazing at any of my hobbies, however, I never like to tell myself that.

My philosophy is that I can achieve anything I dedicate my time to achieving. I never like to berate or discredit anything I've ever accomplished, even if I didn't reach the objective I set out to achieve. I like learning, and my brain ebbs and flows around new concepts all the time. I believe everything I create and do has some level of value, and that's why I created this website.

I hope you enjoy stopping by and taking a look at what I'd like to share with you. Thank you for visiting my website.

Other site information

"Why is it called arctic.zone?"

Doesn't arctic.zone sound catchy as heck? Maybe the site could look a bit colder.

The short answer as to the site is named arctic.zone is plain and simply because it sounds cool.

The long answer is because all of my home/network devices are named after things you'd find either in the ocean, or in the arctic. For example, my primary data drive in my computer is labeled "squid." My ethernet connections are labeled "tentacles." My desktop machine is "tundra." My iPhone SE is "penguin." My ThinkPad X230 is "octopus." These names sort of stuck and so when registering a domain, I figured I would keep the same naming scheme. I also like penguins, a lot. I don't particularly plan on having an arctic theme. I don't know. What do you think?
