Welcome to my website. I purely use this website, or Blog (your choice) to keep note of the stuff I work on or something that interests me.  This website, will most probably, always be “under construction” – simply because I will post new content from time to time, or update existing content as I see fit.

Who am I?

These famous words have been heard in many movies, including “SpiderMan“. I am not a movie star though. I am just an ordinary man, married to a beautiful wife, have two beautiful daughter and at the time of this writing, an unborn sun. We speak Afrikaans at home though I am fully bi-lingual.

What do I do?

I love technology! And I love “tinkering”. To some degree, I’m a hacker – but not like the media falsely portrays it. No, I love building, of fixing stuff. Mostly electronic stuff. I like playing with new inventions, which currently means the Raspberry Pi 3, as well as a Linkit One, Arduino’s, racing cars, solar energy, drones and of course,  Linux! In fact, any Open Source project will intrigue me. Even though I can’t program as well as full time programmers, nor do I have an electronics engineering degree – but that doesn’t keep me from learning and exploring!

About

I am a hacker, a tinker, or an inventor – you decide which one suits your needs and perception.

Technology and engineering has always fascinated me. As a young boy, hardly any new toy or gadget would stay new for very long. I always wanted to know what’s inside, what makes “it tick”, how it works. And, how I can improve it. Many toys or devices never saw the light of day again. Some got fully resurrected, and some even had some nice improvements. Today, very few gadgets or devices are left inoperable after I take them apart. I have learned a lot over the years. These days I enjoy designing / inventing / building something new.
