So many people follow me here, but I've never really written a proper . Time to change that!

Hey there, I'm Chris, but most friends call me 'muesli'. I'm a geek, a software developer, a maker, an opensource advocate and a tech enthusiast. I love programming and tinkering with things. I started almost three decades ago with Basic, and have learned & used Pascal, Assembly, C, C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Rust, Go, and Lua (pretty much in that order) over all these years.

Did you know?

Arch / AUR packages can contain a changelog!

Here's how you can display it:

$ pacman -Qc pkgname

Sadly not too many packages make use of that awesome feature (yet). If you're a packager, please consider adding one to your packages!

I appreciate any insight.
