Welcome to the place of Austin

I swear that I did not forget about you!

Finally, an update to this, September 12th, 2023

Hello World! I am finally updating my website after so long of nothing. I was busy with school, work, and living life, as one should be. However, it was always in my mind to update this. I have been moving to more FOSS and away from big tech and other medias. For starters, I got rid of Snapchat, Facebook, and Reddit. I have in turned started using Mastodon, Lemmy, and Instagram. I know, I know. Instagram, gross right? Well, I still need it in order to stay active in the Japan Association club. But, I would ideally get rid of it once done with school. However, Lemmy and Mastodon will be the main socials. The reason is since they are running on a fedaverse, meaning they are not running on a centralized service. So, no more big tech watching what I like or bookmark. Another update is I am using OPENSUSE. So far I am enjoying using it as a primary OS on an old laptop I have acquired. With this, I am able to use an OS that Microsoft cannot see what I am doing on, but work still requires me to use Windows 10. Another thing, I changed a lot of software from Spotify to Foobar2000 or from Google Photots to Ente. I am really enjoying getting into more FOSS and learning more about how much big tech actually monitors you. I will make another post about what FOSS I would recommend or another tab on the site. Keep watch to see what I do. That's it for now, see when I have the will to update this again.

Break Time for Website

Break time = website updates?, January 26th, 2023

I had time to kill when I needed a break from projects. So, as a result, I have made my website even better than it previously was. I added a navation bar (with help with Sam) with working links, Back to Top button, added photos on some blog posts, and made some slight color changes. I need suggestions on what to keep building out on the website to make it even more refined and clean.
