So here we go
- I see that many bloggers are real music lovers and it's not different with me. My favourites : Frank Zappa, John Cale, Pearl Jam, The Boss and definitely Prince. I just counted that I have some 50 bookmarks to Prince related websites.
- I got two different degrees (or whatever you call it). I first graduated as a teacher and later on went back to study Germanic philology (Dutch and English).
- I actually stood in front of the class for some time and really enjoyed the teaching. But then I got this opportunity to follow a computer course at IBM. Little did I know this would be the start of a mainframe career.
- So I started out some 20 years ago as a Cobol programmer with CICS and IMS in a VM/VSE environment.
- I'm a Harry Potter fan. I read the last book immediately when it came out. And I was glad to see my theory about Snape was correct (you see, I told you so !). In the meantime I read it again in translation (Dutch).
But just to prove you I also read other stuff : I've read Ulysses from Joyce entirely. And if I might give you another tip : House of Leaves from Mark Z. Danielewski.
- I live in Belgium near Ghent and my mother tongue is Dutch. I live there with my wife and two sons (age 17 and 19). No pets.
- I'm a complete fool when it comes to mathematics and electricity.
And I never succeeded in making the Rubik's cube completely. Those damn last four blocks !
- I love all kinds of science fiction. My favourites are : Star Trek, the Alien and Terminator series, Star Wars . . .
