Welcome to!

What is this?
Well, this is my personal website. 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 Python, GNU operating systems, and free software. I am also a member of the Free Software Foundation. :)

Who am I?

I am the 21 years old nonbinary pal 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 not meant to be the magnum opus to collect every tidbit of information about me, but rather a fun little homepage in the same way that we used to have them back in the late 90s or early 2000s.
That means: Link collections, subpages upon subpages, ramblings by the means of a blog, 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 Acer Aspire 7738 NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000, 4GB RAM EndeavourOS, LXDE I use this laptop for light university work and to get creative juices flowing.
Laptop Fujitsu Lifebook E6550 Intel Pentium III 650MHz, 386MB RAM GNUinos (based on Devuan) 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.
Cell Phone Nokia 6500 slide ARM9 core, 32MB RAM 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 Kryo octa, Adreno 630, 8GB RAM 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.
