Why does this site look so old school?

If you reach this site via the modern web, please read this:

Introduction

My name is Paul Buetow and this is my personal internet site. You can call me a Linux/*BSD enthusiast and hobbyist. Although I also have many other interests, you will encounter mostly (if not only) technical content on this site.

I have published some Open-Source software, you will find some reference to it on this site or on my GitHub page(s). I also read a lot of tech newsletters and blogs. I re-share the most interesting ones on my social media feeds. You can find links to my GitHub pages and to my social media accounts on my contact information page:

I have also compiled a list of resources which made an impact on me:

English is not my mother tongue. So please ignore any errors you might encounter.

Posts

I have switched blog software multiple times. I might be back filling some of the older articles here. So please don't wonder when suddenly very old posts appear here.
