Me, Thomas

Me, at work, with computer glasses and headphones

I’m a father of three sons, the oldest two being twins. I live with my kids and wife in Norway. I’m in my late 30s and find computers with Linux, electronics and home automation things pretty fascinating. I’m also a big fan of red wine, Whisky, and cigars.

Between work and family, there isn’t a lot of time left. I use it mostly in my home office/man-cave. A 10 m² (108 ft²) room in the basement, where I tinker with my homelab and electronics projects. I try to write about it.

I may publish the content of your email or chat, along with your name — if I think it could be useful to others.

I’m also on Github, Reddit, and YouTube.


Well… My home office, man cave, server room, and electronics lab is a 10 m² (108 ft²) room in the basement — with thick concrete walls, and no windows. Kinda like a cave.
