Welcome to my site! I will write here about Arch Linux, open source, my Jolla Devices, Raspberry Pi and other stuff that interests me. Have fun looking around! If you have questions, suggestions or corrections feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.

My First Steps with the Raspberry Pi
As you may guess from the title of this post, I'm now one of the fortunate owners of a Raspberry Pi:
