What is this?
Well, this is my own website. Novel concept, right?
My name is Lian and I am an enthusiast for a lot of things, among them the sleek, (X)HTML-only internet and the recent wave to combat internet bloat. Additionally, I am into tech - specifically GNU operating systems, free software, computational linguistics, web development and Python. I am also a member of the Free Software Foundation.

Who am I?

I am the 21 years old nonbinary friend who owns this website. I am from Germany and currently enrolled in university, working on my Bachelor's degree in linguistics and computational linguistics, both of which have been my passion for a considerable time even before starting my studies.

This website is meant to be a semi-professional repository that I can use as a front page for my public self.
That means: a blog mostly about tech opinions, link collections, and some other stuff that might or might not interest you.

If you want to check out what is on this site, go ahead and consult the table of contents above!


My Computers

Type Model/Make Specs Software Why?
Desktop Computer Custom Built AMD Radeon 5700XT, AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 32GB RAM EndeavourOS, xfce4 DE My main machine; mostly for work, the web and entertainment. Not libre software because my university unfortunately requires use of nonfree software.
Laptop 1 ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED - stock - Arch Linux, XFCE4 My new laptop for daily use: development, light gaming, chatting, office work.
Laptop 2 Acer Aspire 7738 - stock - Arch Linux, Trinity DE/Ratpoison WM I used this laptop for light office work. Since my new laptop arrived, practically unused.
Laptop Fujitsu Lifebook E6550 Intel Pentium III, 386MB RAM Red Hat Linux 7.1; KDE 2 A hobby project; I picked it up for €20 online and made it a challenge to get a modern GNU/Linux system working on it with the limited resources I had available. I ended up putting an era-appropriate OS on it though, later on.
Cell Phone Nokia 6500 slide - stock - Series 40 In an attempt to curb unhealthy behaviour with my smartphone, I side-graded from my old OnePlus 6 to a Nokia 6500 slide; a proper sliding phone that does calls and SMS and nothing else.
Smartphone OnePlus 6 - stock - LineageOS A smartphone that is as libre as it gets for me (as Replicant is not available for this model). F-Droid only; ungoogled of course.
