I take interest in a lot of software related things. One hobby of
mine is writing software for old computers and video game systems.
I've been a member of the C64 demo group Hack n Trade since 2009. I
work with software, and as I've gotten older I feel like I don't
want to spend as much time on this hobby as I used to.
I am also interested in music and have released a couple of albums
of chip music. Some years ago some friends and I hosted an acid
house/techno online advent calendar. I think our second run stopped

four night tour in Russia, "performing" my music I mostly composed

In maybe 2011 I launched my first Gopher server. It was hosted with
a python script at home from what was supposed to be a small, cheap
NAS, using some free DynDNS service for a domain. This eventually
evolved into what is today boomlin.de, which is hosted at Hetzner,
along with this server. I mostly bought this domain for fun (you can
find four letter domains on the new, weird TLDs yet!) but I think I
might use it for blogging.
