I'm Alexander Skiba and it's nice to have you on my site.
Should you need to contact me just use the links in the sidebar or send send an e-mail to mail@ghostlyrics.net.

I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Technology in Graz (that's in Austria, not Australia). I've previously studied Transcultural Communication for a year (with focus on English and Russian) at the Karl Franzens University - also in Graz - but that wasn't really the right thing for me.

I'm also a system administrator at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Computer Vision at TU Graz.

What kind of content can you expect here?

I often take notes on which media I consume and write on a variety of topics, but tend to focus on video games and university. While I plan to write more about my work, I rarely blog about development.

About this site

I love to write and find ways to express myself. I used to write at a subdomain of some hosted WordPress (which was not hosted by Automattic and therefore kinda crappy) then moved to my own hosted domain Firefly-Nexus where I wrote in German together with some friends on various topics that were lifestyle oriented. Now - as the site is still online but the enthusiasm behind it seems to have died - I have moved on to my own domain with a ridiculously simple self-hosted WordPress that's stripped of everything I don't need or want. GhostLyrics.net is active since December 2011.

Beginning in late August 2015, I moved to using pelican as a static site generator for the blog.
