Expected to see something else? I thought I was the only one ever bothering to read the “About Me” pages, and that only ever would be when running to a blog by some outrageous comment somewhere else in the Internet.
Fine, you can have it. I’m a human. I live with a human and two feline friends. I don’t like attaching labels to people. Want labels? Geek, crafter, engineer, human, [insert adjective for some place], [insert adjective for some other places], engineer, reverse engineer, hobbyist photographer, food fanatic, reader, thinker, doer, writer… 

Blue sky

Things I like: sea, ocean, Macs, unix based operating systems, lazy programming, cats, mysteries and thrillers (especially world ones), traveling, photography, bookcrossing, languages (some of them at least), swimming, running, gardening odd plants, exploring…

Things I don’t like: pointless celebrities, breedertastic news, people who want an in-depth analysis for a simple “how are you?”, loud people of any age, loud, crowded places. And for anything else, why not read the blog…

Other online presences where I am include e.g. Linkedin, Facebook, delicious, flickr etc.
