Hi, my name is Roman. I make tutorials for BSD users, run OpenBSD on servers and desktops. I'm a fan of POSIX-shell and vi.

Twitter - RSS - Patreon - PayPal

My dear sponsor,

In 2017 I decided to document everything I learn as I go and one day I tweeted about my fanless OpenBSD setup. You retweeted and liked that tweet, and then @mischapeters sent me a T-shirt and almost at the same time @FiLiS mailed me few stickers...

Mischa: "Nice setup! That needs a RUN BSD shirt!"

FiLiS: "...DM me your address and I'll send you some."

Few months later Mischa has helped me again and hosted an European mirror of this very website.

Mischa: "Let me know if you need an OpenBSD VPS on VMM in Amsterdam."

That's how it all started.

First of all, your feedback and tangible support is a priceless source of motivation. Knowing that a stranger from the internet supports my project boosts my morale enormously. Thank you.

All goods and services you donate go directly to support this website, to promote other software projects I use (for example, OpenBSD Project, Run BSD).
