Slatians hideout on the Web

A few bits about me …

I'm Slatian (sleɪtiːan)(aka Baschdel), someone who is interested in programming, customizing their desktop and terminal, sematic web and organizing information (Ontology). I also glue lots of code together with shell scripts.

/me likes opinioated software and uses Linux distributions like Void, Artix and Alpine. Text editor: kakoune.
