Will be buying new server hardware

Next weekend from this date, the server hardware. that me and waffelo host drgnz.club and other services will be changed. The main improvements will be upgrading fromthe 2009 amd phenom to a new ryzen processor, and also upgrading from 8GB of DDR2 ram to 32 gigs of DDR4 3600MHz RAM. A new motherboard and power suply will also be bought.


About me

I am a 18 years old Free Software enthusiast, GNU+Linux enthusiast, and GNU+Linux systems administrator from the Czech Republic. The things I do I do for free and take no money for. In free time I also enjoy going to woods and geocaching. In fact, I'm writing this in a comfy place from woods right now! I am usually very busy with work, messing with computers or other things - I rarely ever consoom any kind of media, I sometimes watch YouTube through Invidious. With Waffelo we are building our own internet world which we have control over, and not some corporation, and we try to make this easy to do for other people as well.

Services I host and/or use

This is a list of all services I use. Most are self-hosted and run on my server (though some on my friend waffelo's domain). All of them are also 100% Free Software.

Computers I use

ThinkPad X200

This ThinkPad is my daily driver and my #1 favorite computer. It runs 100% Free Software including the BIOS, it has phenomenal keyboard, has only trackpoint which I prefer, has tons of expansion and tons of ports. I also have a dock. I can hook it up to my 2 monitors, speakers, keyboard, mouse etc. It's just perfect.
