About Seth

Sethen – Seth D. Barden

I consider myself a computer geek / nerd (whichever term you prefer).  I have a degree in Computer Science from the University of Maine at Farmington, and I’ve been working with computers since I was in high school. I have been designing websites as a hobby since the 90’s and manage a handful of local websites.  In my spare time, I like to go kayaking.

I’m also a computer gamer from time to time.  I spend most of my time playing Minecraft in creative mode, but I also enjoy Diablo, Cities: Skylines, anything SimCity, and a handful of others.  I have a crippling addiction to the Civilization Games…  I tend to loose days at a time when I start playing it.

I have lived in the State of Maine all my life.  I was born and raised in Milo, attended college in Farmington, and have lived in Bangor and Searsport.  I currently live in Old Town with my Maine Coon cat, Buddy.

I am currently working as a Data Technician for Sierra Communications in Bangor, Maine.

I’m involved in a lot of stuff.  It helps keep me busy, and mostly out of trouble.

Sierra Communications

For my day job, I’m a Data Technician with Sierra Communications in Bangor. I do mostly remote desktop support for managed services clients.

WayFar Design

I’ve been designing, developing, maintaining, and hosting websites since 1996. My main clientele is small libraries around Maine.

Three Rivers Community of Maine

TRC is the non-profit website for the greater Milo, Maine region. I’ve been involved since the beginning, way back when I was in high school.  The site has been online for 25 years, and we now have 20+ live webcams on our website!  Through the website, I have been involved with the Schoodic Lake Ice Fishing derby for 20 years!  We stream the annual prize drawing live on the website.

Minecraft: Alpha

I have been playing Minecraft since April of 2012.  I’m a bit of an addict, and have created an ever-expanding medieval/fantasy world in creative mode. I’m currently running a private server where I play with my friends in a handful of creative and survival worlds.

Family Genealogy

I’ve been working on my family’s genealogy for quite a few years now. It all started with a Fitch Genealogy book my Uncle made back in the 90s.  I’ve expanded our family tree back all the way to the original Fitch, but I’m still working on tracing the Barden name back through England.
