studied Math and Chemstry for educational science. Normally I'm found online in jabber/xmpp network all the time. Next to it I hang around in #funtoo, #funtoo-quebec and some others not related to funtoo... After I quit my studies, I now started to work as a Trainee IT specialist system integration for the german internet name center.
History using Linux
I started my way to Linux by an advice of an teacher of mine with SuSE Linux 6.* stayed there until 9.0 and it was fun as long as you didn't update your system, this period hold for about 2 years, then I switched to debian and stayed there until Spring 2009, that was the time I gave Gentoo a try and it was fun at first to install it, but the war of releasing upgrades without a careful testing made it a hell and so I switched from gentoo to funtoo only after about a quarter year. Since then I stayed with funtoo.
History on Funtoo
using it since 2009 and beeing very happy with it, maintaining my private overlay with smaller ebuilds...
Collaboration on Open Source projects
working on some ConTeXt projects too, right now try to write an source ebuild for it...
I speak German as my native lang and learned English for 8 and French for 5 years at School. ATM I'm not really used to talk French any more as I hadn't had a opportunity to do so for the last years... So will give my best to also help our french users, feel free to ask. For places to meet me see at Biography...

About real life
$ man rl rl(1) The Real Life rl(1) NAME rl - reallife SYNOPSIS rl [ Options ] DESCRIPTION rl, short for reallife, refers to life in the real world. rl would mean that you have a life next to Funtoo, Linux or hacking, what wouldn't affect all the devs, except for a little offtime they take for regenerating their internal batteries. Therefore "rl" has several options that can be used to explain what to do in rl mode. The rl-mode can only be set in combination with a Geek or Hacker that you have in front of the computer screen. OPTIONS --eat, -e <MEAL> <TIME> Used to move the Geek or Hacker into the kitchen and let him prepare a meal specified by <MEAL> for the given daytime <TIME>, where <TIME> is in the form of mm/dd/yyyy-hh:mm. If <MEAL> and <TIME> isn't specified it means that the Geek/Hacker will grab the next phone, call the local Pizza or Doener delivery service and order a Pizza or Doener there, that he will consume as soon as it arrives. --weekend, -we moves the Geek or Hacker into a two day lasting weekend where he is normaly not available on the PC, but it might happen that he has a connection to the internet from his cell-phone, so better take it away. --suspend, --sleep, -s <TIME> moves the Geek or Hacker for <TIME> in seconds to sleep, if <TIME> isn't specified it defaults here to 10800 seconds what would be 3hrs. --drink, -d <DRINK> <AMOUNT> <TIME> so that the Geek or Hacker doesn't die, he also sometimes need to drink. this moves him to get <AMOUNT> of <DRINK> at <TIME>. If you specified <DRINK> it is necessary that you also specify the <AMOUNT> else the command is abborted. When the drinking should happen at a special time add <TIME> in format mm/dd/yyyy-hh:mm to the command. If you just use the drink-option it will default to <DRINK>=coffee or Jolt-coke depending on what the Geek or Hacker sees first and <AMOUNT>=2-3 cups or cans and <TIME>=now. --holiday, -away, -a <TIME> will move the Geek or Hacker away from the net for <TIME> and give him a recreational pause. He will come back after <TIME> to work with more power and even better ideas. <TIME> here is explicit needed and has to be given in format of days or weeks, so 14d will be equal to 2w. --social_contact, -sc <PERSON> or <GROUP> that moves the Geek or Hacker away from the PC for a short period where a <PERSON> or <GROUP> comes over to visit him or he needs to move to them. The period of time he is away can vary from several hours to some days, so be patient if this option is set.
