Welcome to the Geminispace


Welcome to my internet site. You can call me a Linux/*BSD enthusiast and hobbyist. Although I also have many other interests, you will encounter mostly (if not only) technical content on this site.

I have published some Open-Source software; you will find references to it on this site. I also read a lot of tech newsletters and blogs. I re-share the most interesting ones on my social media feeds. You can find links to my Codeberg page and my social media accounts on my contact information page:

I have also compiled a list of resources that made an impact on me:

I have switched blog software multiple times. I might be backfilling some of the older articles here. So please don't wonder when suddenly old posts appear here.
