- Mastodon - You can find me on the instance LinuxRocks.Online. It’s the only social media I’m currently using.
- PixelFed - Like Instagram, but federated and based on free and open source software.
- deviantART - I’m a long time user of deviantART. I’m not as active as I used to be, but I still upload the occasional desktop screenshot and a few other things from time to time though.
- GitLab - I upload all my dotfiles here. If you like something from some of my desktop screenhots you will most likely find it here. I try to keep the configuration files fairly updated.
