I’m a yak shaver that likes FOSS, Tolkien, TrackPoints, coffee, tweaking my dotfiles, and writing software. My name is Lukas Waymann and my usual username is Meribold. This is my website.

Once in a while, I write an article for this website. So far this has happened three times.

2021-04-07 A Critique of the Open Letter Calling for the Removal of RMS
2018-02-13 Virtual Environments Demystified
2017-10-20 A Survey of CPU Caches

You can reach me at io@meribold.org. If you want to use encryption you can download my PGP key. You can also contact me via Matrix. Or you can find me on GitHub, YouTube, Mastodon, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

If you really like an article or program I wrote, you can buy me a coffee. If you’re looking for a detail-oriented C++ or Python developer with Linux, UI design, or computer vision experience, you can check out my résumé.
