Blog

From time to time I have something I want to write about. Seldom I also have the time to do so. In these rare occasions you will find a blog post at this place.

If you’re asking, about what I write: I really can’t tell. The most things you can find here in the moment are about Linux, coding, and similar stuff. But I won’t promise that this wont change. We’ll see…

While working on fixing this issue, I also upgraded to the latest version of the feed generator (PicoFeed).

This also means that in most cases there is more than one program listed below.
