I guess i’m supposed to fill this page with some useful content.
I’m Alexander W. Janssen and I’m an telecommunications and IT-networks consultant.
Most of the time in my job I consult my customers in engineering-related issues; I plan their networks, write their requirement specifications, develop custom solutions for problems they didn’t know they have and generally hold their hands. Before that I was working for a big telecommunication vendor, planning clusters and writing documentation.
I’m married to Kerstin, who I already met back in highschool; we both live together in Düsseldorf, a mid-sized town in the west of Germany, together with two cats, Spot and Gonzo.
I used to have two blogs in the past, my first on – still hand-written – back in 1997 on my private homepage; this one eventually vanished due to a harddrive crash, but you still can see some content in the Wayback-machine.
Later I blogged at Bloglines, but got sick of the flaky service eventually.
This blog is mostly about high-performance computing, cluster-issues, civil rights, TOR, the Free Software Movement, science and whatever interests me. My wife claims I have an attention span of a young kitten, so if I don’t answer your comments right away, it might be that I already lost interest :-)
