Hello! My name is Roy Salisbury Marples. You may also know me by my gamer tags Twyst and µße®LørÐ, or variations there-of, on various internet forums and on-line gaming.

Welcome to my little place on the World Wide Web, all about Me, my interests and what I do. Here’s a picture of me at Christmas 2020.

Me at Christmas 2020

Aside from playing games, I do a lot of Open Source work, mainly to do with networking. See my project page for more information.

I’m also a NetBSD developer. I used to be a Gentoo developer, but have since retired due to political reasons. Gentoo still uses my software extensively, and OpenRC is their init system.

I’m a member of the Dead Men Walking gaming community and I’m currently playing Diablo 3 and Overwatch. We’re really looking forward to Star Citizen. I’m also trying to get off the MMO bandwagon, having spent far to much very enjoyable time playing World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2 and now New World. Who am I kidding? I love MMO’s :D

You’ll probably more interested in my blog than this page though. You can also . If you feel the urge, you can give me a donation via my PayPal account as a way of saying thanks for the software and support ;-)

You can email me at roy@marples.name for any queries. But I’d prefer you to use a project mailing list.

I’m the son of Rodney Brian Marples who has been busy digging into the Marples Family History. I’m also privileged to have the same name as my Great Uncle, Wing Commander Roy Marples, DFC & Bar.
