about me

hi

Hello there! They call me Will, but I tend to go by niceopod or deep twisty (more on that later) on the internet. I like to make stuff on the computer, like music, or art, or this website. I've heard rumors calling me such things as "canadian", "autistic", and "incalculably talented". I cannot confirm or deny any of these allegations.

What's a "deep twisty"?

"deep twisty" is a pseudonym I came up with to release music under, because everyone is doing it. It comes from some tweets from an official Subnautica twitter account where they referred to the then-work-in-progress Deep Twisty Bridges biome as just "deep twisty". I thought it sounded funny. Funny enough to brand myself on, apparently.

As for "niceopod", "nice" was the best word I could think of that rhymes with the first syllable of "isopod". I feel like it sounds like I'm trying to say I'm nice. I'm not, it's just that the alternatives were "iceopod" and "sliceopod". Isopods are nice though.

I go by Will because that's my name and I can't be fucked changing it.

Interests

Anything with six or more legs or one or more solar masses. If anyone finds something with both, let me know. I'm also into computers and videogames (shocker). My all time favourite game, just by sheer unrivaled volume of playtime, is Minecraft. I've sunk more time into that game than any other I've played by probably an order of magnitude.

If you care, which I'm assuming you do if you read this far, you can get more information about the things I like in the navigation at the top of this page.

About the site

This website (and my other one) is hosted using Nginx on a VPS running Ubuntu Server. It's written in pure HTML, CSS and a tiny bit of JS with the server-side stuff done in PHP. This website does not use a SINGLE framework, they can all eat my ass. JQuery is on thin fucking ice.

You can read about the history of this thing here.
