Hello Mastodon

I have had my Twitter account since 2009, when I created it for a university project. A whole time not actively used and only in my active time as a bike activist almost like an addict used. I’ve been upset by all the bad news for a long time, so I only check Twitter from time to time. At the moment I have three accounts. Each for its specific target group: one as a bicycle and do-gooder, one for the Ostworld podcast and one, still quite little used, for my development topics.

BedRoom Clock speaker extension

Let's go - My new homepage

Info Hello, yes you are right here. Even if you were redirected from reneschimmelpfennig.de. There is news for you. Since 2003 I have my own homepage, which is publicly available at www.reneschimmelpfennig.de. At that time I was still a student and made my high school diploma. I was the only one from the class with an own domain, probably also the only one who dealt with HTML in his spare time.
