I am a heretic. My first programming language was Lingo.
Pictures of wives, kids, houses, cars and pets: n/a.
Favorite dish/drink: let's go to lunch and you will see.
Formal education in computer science: none, except some lectures in C at CNAM. Most of this i forgot. The rest i learned by RTFM.
When not hanging around at the monastery, i'm forced to work.
I'm doing 24/7, help desk, monitoring, reporting and occasionally some web stuff.
In a few years i will retire and i hope very much that i can forget all the mistakes i made as soon as possible.
Sorry, no programmers.

I made a website for a very good friend of mine who passed away this year. Unfortunately the site is in german (english version under construction). Take a look at it...and enjoy the music.
