My name is Jake though I usually go by “jbauer” online. I am a hobbyist sysadmin and staunch supporter of online freedom, privacy rights, and free and open access to information and knowledge.
I blog mostly about technology and computing. I also took part in #100DaysToOffload in 2020. Here is a showcase of the blog posts I am most proud of:
- Why IRC is Still Good in $CURRENT_YEAR
- Why Email is the Best Discussion Platform
- Choosing a Self-Hosted Git Service
- Paying for Software
- The Joys of Old Tech
- A Month-and-a-Half of Self-Hosted Email
- Are TODO Applications a Waste of Time?
- Why I Hate The Term “Modern”
- My Journey With Computers
