I am thumb. A linux enthusiast and film camera romanticist. When I am not at my computer, I am usually playing with my kid, reading books, taking care of the lawn or learning how to take better pictures. The various cameras and lenses in my possession bear testimony to the gear acquisition syndrome.

Simbly is just how simply may sound when spoken with a heavy Malayalam accent. It's silly and is a nod to my roots.

This blog resides on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and is published with Publii. The previous version of this blog was made with Jekyll and although it was great in keeping the website light and accessible, Publii offers the same without the cumbersome workflow.
