About

A tired, not yet retired engineer
I see myself as experience driven, user-oriented, apolitical and facts agnostic rationalist.


I have been using computers since the times of Apple ][ (and others)
So, I began more than ten years before Linus released the very first Linux kernel (1991, 1996).

Sadly that doesn't make my computer knowledge better ;-)
I've seen a vast diversity of PC-grade machines and software - and that might be one reason;
it has simply been too many different ones.
