Name: some say it's too foreigner-ish. Feel free to call me VredensEngel or Stormrider instead.
Birthday: the 26th May (stellium in Gemini yeah!)
Place of residence: another dimension.
Contact: can you guess my email? Mine Englishe nickname (at) the domain name o' this very web-site. (Nothing for spambots.)
Hobbies: Music, crime stories, true crime, jet fighters.
Background: Having always been interested in nature and science, I studied agriculture. The amount of knowledge on industrialized mass murder made me a vegetarian, thereafter a vegan - for a lifetime.
Enthusiastic Debian/BSD user here, since I appreciate freedom and stability. I do enjoy making old hardware work under *nix, or at least finding out why it's not willing to work.
Begun to teach myself guitar and music theory some years ago; I am equally eager to learn from others - who are better than me - and to share my knowledge with others who are completely beginners. I love singing (hey, I am not saying I actually can), reading (this is something I actually can, at least), taking photos.

Life philosophy: What is this thing, life or what do they call it? And what is phil... what was that, again? I'm terribly sorry but I am probably too simple-minded to reach to such heights.
Gear: Jackson JS32T Rhoads ♥, a bit awkward to have a Behringer household amphead in addition to it.
