So, who is the guy that's writing here?

I (that's the guy that is writing here) am Winfried "Winni" Neessen. Born and raised in the north of Germany (a region called "East Frisia"). I now live in the city of Cologne, in the mid-west of Germany. Here I work as the "Director Information Security" at a ESD (electronic software distributor).

I think it's fair to say that I am very tech-savvy... computers and I have a long history. I got my first PC in the mid-80s when I was 5 years young... ever since our ways haven't split apart. In my job and my free time, I spent lot of time at the computer. The UNIX command line is my home and I love coding in Perl. I do have a pretty sane background in all kinds of *NIX operating systems. I worked with Linux, SunOS, *BSD, as well as AIX and HP-UX. My preferred OS of choice is one of the different BSD flavors. On servers I mostly go for FreeBSD and for Desktops I choose MacOS X (yeah, start ranting... I don't care).

As the little side-widget already says, this blog is meant as kind of a landfill for my personal thoughts. I am writing about tech stuff (OS, Coding, etc.), security stuff, nerdy stuff (you know- those things that nerds love) as well as some of my private stuff (lot of ranting will be involved, I guess). Most posts will likely to be written in english, although I might publish some notes in german as well (especially the private stuff might end up in german).

If you wanna get in touch with me, you can find me on the social networks/platforms that are shown in the sidebar or just send me a mail or something similar.

How to reach me?
