Special interests

  • Emerging technologies, focus on new Linux developments and Office compatibility
  • OS/2 and eComStation and the currently emerging port of OOo 2.4. Get it from Mensys
  • Linux distributions in general (always on the bleeding egde - Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Slackware ...)

Private (sparetime, partly job-related) projects

  • C coding 4 fun - current project: BasTool, a swiss army knife to ease working with the Testtool environment without the need of a sophisticated database infrastructure and heavy weight Java applications (non public)
  • QA for OOo/2 the port for OS/2 and eComStation (for any questions please go to commTalk, a forum for computer users (mainly german))

Sparetime (not at all related to the job)

  • Aikido (A martial arts style that is very elegant and aims at not hurting the opponent)
  • Biking (Mountain Bikes are very useful in the lowlands of northern Germany)
  • Jogging
  • Drawing snails. Hey, everyone has a spleen, right? I'm just taking advantage of the circumstances - we've got whiteboards and an almost unlimited supply of whiteboard markers. The snail's name is Louisa. Louisa Gleitmeier.

And while we're at it: Did you know that german snails are far better off than english/american ones? German snails have a house, english snails only have a shell. That's luxury!

If you absolutely have to kill the snails in your garden you could try with politeness: Offer them coffee. Or - more easy still - just take a pack of coffee powder and spread it all over your garden. Best trick ever.

"Don Quixote invented a special sort of desparation. Doing QA is the fifth generation successor to this."
