About Me

I'm hosting a website about programming and do-it-yourself electronics. Just read it for full-fledged information about me and my work + hobby. And I go work and pay taxes.

Eigentlich steht alles über mich auf meiner Webseite. Bis hin zur Telefonnummer. Zugegeben, das meiste dreht sich um Elektronik und Programmieren, Arbeiten + Steuern zahlen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have hosted some people and surfed while doing round trips in various countries (so far mostly in the US). If I have time I attend the local meetings.
