Thanks for connecting.

Do you use both Puffinux accounts equally?

Should I follow both?

I've settled on just using one account, I think.

@harroun

Thanks for making this connection.

I think you are the third person from your instance today!

I have a user's perspective on GNU/Linux and otherwise talk about mostly foolish stuff I enjoy doing.

Follow until it suits you not to do so.
