Welcome to my Homepage

Here I will collect the things I know or find out.
I'll write about Ubuntu/Arch Linux, Windows, Bash and Perl Scripting, Virtualisation and whatever else that could be interesting.
All I'm going to write here is tested by myself. I don't give a warranty of the functionality on other systems.

If there are questions, suggestions or something else feel free to send me an mail.

I'm also a hobby photographer, for those interested here is a link.
