Now the year passed in which I had been tagged by
finally I have the time to respond.
I started programming at school with Visual Basic and wrote a chat
program for our school. It worked by doing no networking at all, only
writing into a text file on an SMB share.
My soon-to-be wife and I got together when I was laying in hospital in
11th grade. While I visited hospitals quite often in my younger years
(broken arms, legs, glass plates fallen onto my head etc.), since then
- 8 years now - there was only one occasion for me to required medical
attendance there; a burned hand. Did I forgot to say she is nurse at an
intensive care unit for kids?
At university I studied information technologies, and to broaden our
knowledge we had to choose a second subject in which the basic studies had
to be completed. Together with a friend I chose mathematics, since I
always got A or A+ grades in school there.
After the second lecture, the school knowledge was over and only new
things mattered. After three weeks, we switched to physics because
it was just too hard.
I'm all for decentralization. To be safe from network failures, two
weeks ago I
USB port onto my radio alarm clock to have
a fallback in case my UPnP music server fails.
I stopped giving my family help on Windows computers 5 years ago. You
either have to help yourself, or get a Mac or Linux.
The only room in our fresh-built house that has no network socket is the
bathroom. I gave in to my girlfriend but now even she regrets it, given
that we need to lay out the 15m network cable to be able to watch videos
from the bath tub.
I don't do social networks. This is also the excuse for not tagging
