Hi there and welcome! Thank you for visiting my little blog. And thanks even more for opening this page you’re looking at right now. My name is André and I live in the Netherlands. I’m in my late thirties but don’t feel like my age at all. Some people said that I don’t act like my age either, but I don’t really care about that.
At this moment in my life I don’t have a lot of responsibilities and I’m fine with that, because this means that I can pretty much do whatever the f*ck I want. One of those things is spending ridiculous amounts of time in an online multiplayer game called World of Warcraft. But also I love to mess around with IT related things in my computer home-lab. I’m always working on something and I have a long to-do list of things I still want to do. Some projects work out great, and other projects are like lessons to me through trial and error. I’m a huge, typical nerd, or rather a geek when it comes to computers and I can have long conversations about the subject with other geeks. You will be seeing what sort of things I like to mess around with in this blog in the future since that is one of the main reasons I decided to create this blog. Besides IT and World of Warcraft related stuff I might also blog some total random things that I felt like posting.
I have a cat. I thought about creating a blog for her but turns out she’s really bad at spelling and grammar so that idea is off the table. She listens to the name Miss Poes. In my language that name has a double meaning but I’m not going to try to explain because I tried that before and it didn’t work since it’s a language thingie.
My profession is, or was, in ICT. Mostly support and a bit of engineering. No top, high payed jobs since I don’t have the papers to show all the things I have mastered. But, currently I am without a job so who cares. Being without a job gives me plenty of time to kill bosses, farm mounts, defective hardware to fix and operating systems to install. I also try to invest more time in my DJ-ing skills and should really put more effort in that, and I will, soon. All in good time. That’s about all I can think of right now that I want to share here. I’ll be editing this page in the near future to write a bit more about myself if I feel like it.
To finish it off, here are a couple of random words that are meaningful for me in no particular order: Pizza, friends, movies, cats, listening to music, making music, games, Ubuntu, love, the universe, internet, beer, freedom, TV-shows, technology, gabber, parents & family, sex, Debian, 60’s & 80’s music, the meaning of life, Linux, happiness, red wine, parties, life, death.
