GNU/Linux is the only OS that offers its users such variety of tools from which users can built the perfect machine for their specific needs. Even better, you can customize these tools to make them even more suitable to your needs. As a consequence, each user will have a unique combination of tools with unique configurations.

Thank you Herman

A big thank to Herman Martinus who maintains bearblog.dev and makes life so easy for lazy people like me to share their insignificant thoughts with the people lost on the internet. Beardblog offers me the feeling of gemini on the www: "No trackers, no javascript, no stylesheets. Just your words."

You landed here and now what?

You probably reached this page by mistake so be ready for a great experience because great things often result from mistakes :)
I've always loved randomly browse a blog and discover new ways of using my machine, learn how to refine my workflow as well as nice tips and tricks and so I'm hoping to be able to offer this same feeling here.

What this blog is about?

I'm a space biologist by training and a(n) (Arch)linux user by passion so I have no technical legitimacy to judge computing tools/hardware and that's fine. My only goal here is to share my experience as a user in the hope that it may sometimes be useful to others and feeds your curiosity.
Over the years I became a KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) user and think that simplicity is power. Hence, my thoughts will focus on "simple" yet powerful tools. I'm also a believer in FOSS (Free and Open-Source Software) and sensitive to privacy modern web concerns.

If you're curious:

  • I also have some scripts and dotfiles on codeberg. I've posted some content there a while ago and did not yet bother updating everything so even though all scripts should be functional, some may not be optimally written.
