sloum's software lab and documentation center

Welcome to the sloum's subpage on This page holds documentation for the various software projects I, sloum, work on.

When not working on projects here I work as a software developer, parent a toddler, cook vegan food, play music, read great writing, and spend a lot of time in the pubnix world and on the smallnet.


These programs are largely written for myself and not intended for a large audience. That said: it always makes me happy to hear that someone else likes or gets use out of them. They are intended to form a personal productivity/office suite that is being added to as time goes on. Most of the documentation hosted on this website amounts to build instructions and links to source code or binaries. nimf and tally have full user-guides with quickstarts and command/api explanations hosted here. bombadillo and slope have their own website and, as such, are external links. The vast majority of the projects come with a man page and a detailed README (slope, slosh, and nimf all have very very detailed README documents that detail the language and should answer most questions).

Code Repositories

Lots of my code, including all of the above programs, can be found in one of the following repositories:


I tend to spend a lot of time on gopher, gemini, and pubnix systems. Here are some favorites:


I cook a lot of delicious vegan food (at least I think so). I post recipes online in a few places and have decided to mirror them here. This site is mostly focused on documentation and I feel that recipes fit in very nicely with that as they are definitely a form of documentation (one much more useful to people than most of my code probably is). does not have a web presence for itself (just a few subdomains like this one), but if you point a gopher client to gopher:// you will find information about the pubnix there.
