Born between epochs (1<<27) and (1<<28), I got known as a teen for the 0130 list of German toll free numbers, which served as a helpful tool to many phreaks. Since then I have run three ISPs and a datacentre, before I got into performance and availability engineering. I am currently one of three maintainers of the FOSS Varnish-Cache project and grateful part of the best small company ever.
