So many people follow me here, but I've never really written a proper #introduction. Time to change that!
I have been or still am contributing to KDE, VLC, Qt, Amarok, Transmission, Docker, Tomahawk, PHP & probably several dozen other open source projects. I've founded a startup or two and used to work at Last.fm & Nokia. I enjoy the silence & calm of the night and it's where I become the most productive.
I was born in Germany, but have moved to and lived in several other countries since. I'm only really fluent in German and English, but also understand a bit of French, Dutch and Latin.
If I'm not listening to an audiobook or stream, it takes me way too long to fall asleep at night. I suck at multi-tasking & planning ahead. I used to cultivate carnivorous plants as a kid and am still fascinated by them today. I grew up near the mountains but feel at home by the sea. I competitively played tennis, table-tennis, and football (soccer) as a teenager.
I can't play an instrument and I can't draw or paint, but I admire the arts and artists.
I love and collect Lego sets, board- & video games alike. I can't stand losing when I play games, but friends never considered me a bad loser.
I try to actively learn and memorize something new every single day of my life. Often I fail, but I'll never stop trying.
Never hesitate to say hello! 😊
@fribbledom Nice introduction! And hello :)
@fribbledom hello 👋
Nice to meet you, great introduction.
Du scheinst sehr viel um die Ohren zu haben und hast viele Bereiche, denen Du dich verbunden fühlst.
Mich würde eventuell noch interessieren, welche Art Hörbücher Du bevorzugst.
Ich selbst höre gerne welche, oder auch Podcasts, wenn ich Nachts nicht einschlafen kann.
Wünsche Dir eine gute Zeit hier... und natürlich ein schönes Wochenende.
Vollkommen unterschiedlich und je nach Stimmung. Teils klassische ??? (3 Fragezeichen)-Folgen, teils fachliche Podcasts oder Sherlock Holmes Episoden. Oft auch einfach meine YouTube Subscriptions 😂
Schoenes Wochenende auch dir!
@fribbledom Hi muesli, thanks for your nice introduction!
@fribbledom Hello! and welcome a board.
@fribbledom LOL! Parts of your introduction reminded me of The Little Shop of Horrors movie. Love it! Have a great day!

@fribbledom *shyly* Hello! *poings back under the couch*
@fribbledom lots in common! Hello from the other side!
Uh, that's a tough one. The list is long and a bit eclectic. Power Grid, TAC, Yspahan, El Grande, Azul and Village among my current favorites.
Hey there 🙋
@fribbledom Greetings! 👋
@fribbledom hi not sure why you've followed me (as I'm not a tech related person at all) but it's nice to meet you
Hey there o/
@fribbledom I'm the same way, but I listen to very old radio serials from the 1940's and 50's, like X Minus One, Dimension X, Space Patrol, or the Lux Radio Theatre type of programs.
I'm playing around with Wekan (Kanban) in an attempt to be more focussed and organised.. We'll see.
Amarok the audio reader?
In what language is it written?
The audio player, yes. It's written in C++.
And too bad...
(I had an idea for a long time for a small improvement, but I don't write C++)
@fribbledom Contributing to PHP ? That's awesome ! :o
I often toot in French but if you need a little help to get what I say, no problem
