I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1960, parents from Bavaria and Sudetenland, went to school there and University of Witwatersrand to get a BSc. Then worked as a construction engineer/manager from 1988-2004. I came on holiday to Germany 2002, loved it and stayed here, done my last 5 building projects in Germany.
I found management stressful as I had social-phobia and no lessons in grammatical German. Thus, I switched from management to IT. As a technician, I very easily solved ~ 2000 hotline maintenance calls, installed 8000+ computers in the panic of the Y2K problem and worked in project-teams. My carrier ended a year after getting married, got chronically ill and permanently unemployed with poly-neuropathy, a degenerative spine condition and atrial fibrillation. Side-effects have caused plenty of other health issues. My right leg was amputated in May 2018.
Since then, I have adapted to my situation. I sometimes get the feeling I will pass on soon and other times that I can live forever. Thus, the time has come, my last chance, to share all my inventions and philosophy with the world. It took me 20 years to start a web-page, then done it in a few days ... the same procrastination with other important plans!
