I am a computer enthusiast that really enjoys working on Unix based systems.
I am an avid tinkerer that likes knowing how things work.
I grew up with Commodore systems from the PET to the C64 followed by the C128 and finally the Amiga until Commodore went out of business.
In 2022 I have re-sparked my interested in the Commodore Amiga. I have since acquired a couple machines and have been working to refurbish them.
I am interested in learning about vintage machines and the community around it.
Boardgames are a large part of my life and I focus on general co-ops, worker placement and RPGs.
I do enjoy Magic The Gathering which I started playing since 1994 and have judged from 2002 until I retired as a L3-E in 2019/2020.
Lego have been a great part of my life and I firmly believe they have been part of what makes me interested in building stuff. They also are a great to blend with boardgames which really resonates with me.
I am a licensed Amateur Radio operator (HAM Radio).
I have been licensed since I was 15 as I was very interested in packet radio. Packet radio is a system where a TNC (Terminal Node Controller) was connected to a computer for 1200 baud data communications.
I still have some of these TNCs with interested to connect a few to build a small network.
While I am currently not overly active I still enjoy the concepts partially digital communication modes.
I have several recipes here that I have enjoyed over the year.
