Hi! I am Mirko Adam.

I am currently studying computer science at the University of Innsbruck.

I am committed to free software. If you want to know more about why this is important, read the corresponding page on my server or visit fsf.org.

This is my personal site. It will not contain much in the beginning, but it will be expanded. The server that is hosting this website is used for various projects and other stuff related to my studying, so the website may not be available from time to time. Due to these projects, you may find some cool tools, Easter eggs and other stuff on this website. Some of them are permanently referenced below.
It is also used as a Nextcloud instance. Of course, this nextcloud instance is not open to the public but only to certain people.

Stuff

Social Media and other accounts

On most sites, my username is Elshid. However, if this username is not availiable, I add a number to it, most times 1701.

GitLab, GitHub and Codeberg

Even though GitHub is owned by Microsoft and both GitLab and GitHub are containing non-free elements, I am on both GitLab and GitHub, as for a developer, being able to work together with other developers around the world is crucial. If you do not want to sacrifice your freedom, I highly recommend to use Codeberg instead of GitHub and GitLab as it is Free Software, powered by a non-profit and community-driven. If you want to find out more about this project, go there.

Instagram

To be able to cummunicate with my friends and family as well as to advertise this site, I joined Instagram. From time to time, I post some images. I would be happy if some of you, dear readers, followed me.

Discord

Even though this is another non-free service, I needed this service among other things for as a video conferencing service for the university.

Wikipedia

Since a short time, I am a member of the Wikipedia.

Free Software Foundation

As I am commited to free software, I joined the FSF.

Mastodon

I joined not only proprietary networks, but also Mastodon, a Social Media Network similar to Twitter but built on Free Software.

Own works

Website Bürgerhilfe Audorf

I am maintaining the website of the Bürgerhilfe Audorf, a small, local, non-profit organization that focuses on establishing and organizing a neighborhood support group in Oberaudorf, a village in Bavaria, close to the Tyrolean border. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we organized a free delivery service for the elderly and other people of risk, so they needed not to go out and risk their health. This service is still existent.

Due to the pandemic, they got less donations and will run out of money soon. This organization needs YOUR help to sustain itself and continue its mission. So, if you can, please donate or become a member to support this wonderful organization.
