What is this all about?
Trying to reach me?

Writing is one of my hobbies. Hopefully, one day it will be more than just for fun.

Until now I've written various articles for MEMI, the Magazine for Electronic Music on the Internet, and the German Lotek64 and Go64! magazines featuring vintage home computers.

Of MEMI I'm co-publisher since 1999, for Lotek64 I'm a staff editor since late 2004, and for Go64! I was staff editor between 1998 and 2001. I'd love to get in contact with other magazines as well such as design&elektronik where I've written an article for the CPLD Developer's Conference 1999 which was printed in issue 6/99 of this magazine, or the Keys magazine where I was featured and subsequently was able to place an article back in 2000.

Between March 2001 and its discontinuation in December 2001 I was a freelance writer for the Gruner & Jahr ComputerChannel contributing several articles.

Suggestions, questions, acclamation, or simply curiosity about who that guy is you might want to place here:

To fight spam, I'm running RBL-based filtering and Greylisting, so if your ISP's mail server is blacklisted or doesn't play according to the SMTP RFC, you might encounter bounces.
