FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Personal stuff people keep asking me
- What do you mean by the "Far East" of Germany?
- Berlin, which is almost as far east in Germany as you can go without hitting Poland (which is about 90 minutes away from my front door by public transport).
- Are you a Mac or a PC person?
- Hmm, more of a "*NIX" person: I use mainly UNIX-based or UNIX-similar systems; Linux (currently Ubuntu) on my main PC, and Max OS on my laptop (currently an Intel MacBook). I also work with FreeBSD and OpenBSD (makes an excellent router/firewall), and used to work with Solaris.
Technical stuff about this blog people keep asking me
- What software does this blog use?
- It runs on a CMS-style application of my own making. It's written mod_perl and uses PostgreSQL for the database backend.
- Who designed the template?
- Me. I'm not a web designer, but I enjoy the challenge. It's in constant need of improvement.
General stuff people keep asking me
- Isn't there someone in Japan who has a penguin as a pet?
