About Me

This is my personal little corner of the Internet, where I will occasionally write my thoughts about things.

My name is Thomas Landin and I am a truck driver by trade, although I've always had a fascination with computers and technology. So in my spare time I mess around with these things. Most of it is me endlessly tweaking my setup, but every so often something worthwhile pops out.

I prefer FOSS alternatives and I'm a proponent for self-hosting as much as reasonably possible, but I am not a purist so I will run proprietary tools if they are either unique or offer a better end-user experience. Whenever possible I migrate away from these tools to FOSS options, which usually coincides with moving from the cloud to self-hosting.

Owning your data and archiving information is something I care about; because between corporations, link rot, and bit rot we can never trust that important data is maintained for whatever timespan we need it unless we take action into our own hands to ensure that it is.
