I am new to this list, reading it through the web archive only
until I have a faster system for e-mail filtering.
Some facts about me: Developing software since more than 30
years in various fields, consulting in various related fields.
Networking almost as long, both with humans & computer to computer.
Interested in ethical questions of it use. Interested in improving
existing and implementing new possibilities, most specifically
visionary approaches, or things that are deemed impossible.
In doubt, I prefer more powerful, and parameterizable, solutions ;-)
I am educated a mathematician, physicist, and (a bit) linguist.
Interested computer assisted translation and machine tranlation.
There are more than a dozen languages that I feel lucky to be able
to understand few words of when reading (although I may not grasp full
meanings of most sentences!) fluent speaking only English, German, Kölsch.
Last 10 years, I've been involved in Web design and programming,
and ISP work, like maintaining and using dedicated and shared
servers (mostly LAMP)
