Ever since highschool in Canada, where I experienced QNX first, I have been drawn to Unix-like Operating Systems. That was 30 years ago, I'm 47 years old (at time of this writing). My interests include programming, system administration and communicating via IRC.

Currently living in Germany, in a small town called Schweinfurt. The biggest cities I've lived in include Toronto, Montreal and Frankfurt. I was born in Berlin, Germany (so another big city).

I am single and don't have a partner currently.

My mission is to live this life until its end, and help others as much as I can. I found that through IRC I can reach people worldwide, in lieu of helping my neighbours.

Programming languages that I wrote small code on include BASIC, COBOL, PASCAL, C, Java, Javascript, PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, Bourne shell, AWK, and a bit of different assembler (ASM).

Here on IRCNOW I have contributed/added some things:

Other wiki's I've written on include:

Currently I have access to the following Operating Systems at home: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Windows, Mac OS X Tiger on G5, Solaris x86. Some of these are virtualized and some native.

I have computer hardware ranging from i386, amd64, powerpc, MIPS32, MIPS64, ESP32 and ARM. Most of these are in an off state until Germany has energy abundance and appropriate low costs for electricity.
