My name is Nate Shoffner. I am a passionate, self-taught software engineer based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with over 10 years of experience in various technologies, frameworks, and platforms.
Incoherent ramblings, project updates, reviews, and other writings fallen into the ether.
For years, dating back to the Athlon line, I had been using AMD processors for my builds and had been waiting in anticipation for Ryzen’s release, which debuted in February of this year. I had been using an overclocked FX-8350 for a few years, which meant there was no upgrade path in sight that didn’t require a full architecture and socket change, whether that be AMD or Intel.
Back in early November, Nvidia started bundling telemetry services with their drivers. Gamers Nexus did an analysis where they inspected data transactions via Wireshark. Their focus seemed to be moreso on dispelling the rumors of personally identifiable information being sent unencrypted, as they didn’t decrypt any of the encrypted traffic. Their results yielded from an hour of testing that nothing was being sent, the services were seemingly dormant.
I’ve just finished moving my website over from WordPress to GitHub Pages. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. Despite using WordPress for years, I’ve found it to be rather excessive for my personal needs as far as resource usage and maintenece goes.
Here are a few public projects I’ve worked on. I still have a lot yet to add here and some of these might not be 100% up to date, but I'll get to it eventually™.

Build and Shoot is a project operated by Buld Then Snip, LLC, a company co-founded and co-operated by myself that focuses on supporting and developing the classic version of the game "Ace of Spades". After being bought out by another studio and moving to a pay-to-play model, we decided to branch off and continue support for the free-to-play version.
