Self-learned multidiscipline allround ICT guy.
Although working in a laboratory, it started as part-time secondary tasks within that company but grown from “just helping out” to supervision of a dedicated ICT department of two persons. Responsible of developing and implementing both their website as well their intranet system. Developing of many internally used VBA macro’s. Upgrading, Implemention and system design of two linux based dataservers, a mail server, router / VPN system and network infrastructure.

Currently into Smart Home Automation. Personal A.I. Assistant (smart speaker 2.0) combined of course with the available Kodi experience and knowledge.
Blogging about all aspects during the Research & Development stage. I do the home work so that you have all the right information in one place and don't have to "Google" everything.
My strong affinity with ICT matters has earned me certain online "recognition" and got me involved in multiple interesting projects.
Was a co-founder of "The Little Black Box", a multimedia streamer based on XBMC / Kodi. A device that was brought available to big retail shops in the Netherlands such as MediaMarkt, BCC and many big online webshops as bol.com as an end result.
In the past on this same blog I used a donations type of system.
This time I am taking another route by utilizing Patreon. Still doing what I love, get paid for the costs, while you guys get all the perks and rewards related to it.
A win-win situation is you ask me.
With my strong affinity with opensource software and hardware the main topics on this website would be mostly, but sure not limited, the ones described on the right. Free software, available for everyone to create awesome projects.
