I am Frank. I have two children; a boy and a girl. At time of writing my son is 16 years old and my daughter is ten years old. They are really great kids! I love them.
I work as an application specialist in an mixed environment of Unix, Linux and Windows hosts. My specialism goes to Unix, monitoring, scripting (shell scripting in ksh88 and ksh93) and a little web thingies. Currently I try to learn Elasticsearch, Kibana and Logstash to get more from the logs the applications make.
I am interested in electronics, robotics, raspberry pi projects and astronomy. I made a Newton telescope myself. One of the things I want to do is to improve my scope with some automation using the RasbPi. I want move the telescope to an object in the sky and to make pictures of it all from a location in my home, while it is cold outside and warm and cozy inside, sipping from a glass of wine. Must be easily done using WebIOpi, some hardware interfaces to controle stepper motors and and a camera. And it would be fantastic to build it with my children.
I like to ride a motor bike and I like sailing, to brew beer and lots of other stuff.
Well, that's me in a nutshell.
