Who am I

I'm a long time IT guy from Sweden, started programming at age 9, first Unix exposure in -93 (NetBSD) and soon after also some Linux, then loads of system programming at IBM mainframe, S/38, AS/400, Windows C++/DCOM, heavy duty Java J2EE, you name it. Today I'm an Enterprise Architect but try to keep some dirt under the nails by digging in the dirt, I mean Linux.
