About

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm John Espiritu, a professional software engineer based in Makati, Philippines. I primarily develop and maintain websites and web-based applications.

You can find me as hikari (HKRI★, ひかり★, hkri) or johnillo in-game and on the Internet. I was a Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune player, and the 5-character limit started me to use hkri.

See this page for info about my computing environment and practices.

Why make yet another blog?

95% of blogs on the interweb are being abandoned and forgotten. I tried blogging (on Tumblr) years back, and doing it just for the sake of popularity and attention doesn't just work. Also, I'm not an aspiring writer.

Recently, I felt the need to document the experiences and knowledge I accumulate as my life goes on, so I made this self-hosted blog. I made it public, hoping that some of my insights and articles will be helpful to some people. For very personal stuff, I keep a private journal in my encrypted drives.

Sharing and commenting on posts

No "like" or "share" buttons here because I don't like the invasion of privacy of social networking services (SNS). However, feel free to share the URL of the article you like on your page or feed.

I didn't make this blog for social interactions. Please send me an email if you have any feedback.

日本語

現在、N4日本語能力がありますので、簡単日本語しかできません。だから、このブログはとりあえず英語で全部書きます。
