Normally you should find some more info about my private life and my private interests on this page.

Beside hanging around in front of computers a lot, I am interested in sports (jogging, cycling, fitness training, badminton, skiing, climbing) graphics and art, cinema, traveling, literature.

Because I regard all this as pretty normal hobbies, I won't tell you much more about it.


Nerdy stuff ahead: This is of course important enough to be mentioned here ;-)), as I would not be able to write and publish these pages without my machines.

Three of my computers are still running, two IBM-compatible PC's and one Android smart phone. An AMD Athlon64 with 1 GB RAM and a nVidia GeForce 6600 GT card, which now serves as a cheap surfing-machine for my parents, now running Ubuntu 14.04 Linux and thus preventing a lot of headaches regarding trojans, viruses and other malware, and my current Intel Core i5 4440 with 8 GB RAM and a nVidia GeForce GFX 560 Ti also running Ubuntu 14.04. Microsoft Windows Vista no more.

Read my installation-notes regarding Gentoo-Linux, Fedora Core 3, Fedora Core 6, Fedora 8, Fedora 10, Fedora 13 and Fedora 14 as well as my CentOS page.

See also my review on Linux on Laptops which I compiled for the two machines I have used for my work.

There are two pages related to my Palm and Nokia phones, but they are not too exiting and pretty outdated by now.

For some time I had to cope with a Mac, but you won't find any info about Apple-computers on my site anymore.

I play Unreal Tournament 2004 (no, not really any more), Battlefield 3, Counter-Strike Source and X-Plane (if I have the time).

If I don't play, I toy around with Linux and bioinformatics-tools, programming stuff and playing (again :-)) with my new media center. I used to run a game-server on local LAN-party's with friends (6-15 people at most). In between I became a bit more fundamentalistic regarding operating systems, and had to setup Wine and Cedega to get some of the Windows-stuff to work on my FC3-box, but this changed again.

STOP! That's it! Really! Nothing else to tell!

Pretty boring, eh? You have been warned.
