About me

I am a Free Software enthusiast, GNU+Linux systems administrator from the Czech Republic. I am an administrator of drgnz.club and other servers as well. In free time I also enjoy going to woods, geocaching and studying the Bible. I am usually very busy with work, messing around with computers or other things. With Waffelo we are building our own internet world which we have control over, and not some demonic corporation, and we try to make this easy to do for other people as well. That's why drgnz.club exists.

I can libreboot your computer!

If you are interested in librebooting/corebooting your computer, you can contact me, and we can make a deal about a send-in librebooting service. I have flashers for both SOIC-8 and SOIC-16, so that encompasses most computers that can be librebooted. Note that it's probably easiest if you are from the EU or Europe in general, shipping from countries outside Europe may not be worth it due to the cost of shipping.


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

Main PC

This is a copmuter that I built a few years ago and continued to upgrade it ever since. I use it as my "main" computer at home. I use it to play video games, It's more of an entertainment and general purpose machine than anything else, for work and productivity I use my ThinkPad T400.

ThinkPad T400

This ThinkPad is currently my daily driver. 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 replaced the battery for a new one.
