About this site:
This is my central blog site for all my activities and interests, private and professional, which is quite a bit. See the categories or tags if you come here for one subject only. There is something for everyone: computers (work and passion), astronomy (passion and volunteer work), running (passion), martial arts (passion), dogs (passion) and all the rest…

If there is one common theme in all I do, it is this: I am a story teller. I love to present, be it to show you the night sky or the latest version of software.
I have been around this industry for more than 30 years. The main thread throughout my career is systems management. I have done a lot of demos pulling hard drives from servers that generated alerts on my phone… magic…
I work for VMware Benelux as Senior Systems Engineer for Enterprise Management. A presales role where I evangelize products such as vCenter Operations Manager, Hyperic, vCM,… VMware is of course THE leader in virtualization and cloud computing.
My strength is combining technical knowledge with presentation skills, I like to tell the story and convince you. Especially if you do not want to be convinced…
I live in Boechout with my golden retriever Jack.
About the bitstream:
If you wonder why I still sign all my emails with “See you on the bitstream”, I have done so in my emails and messages since 1987. Yes, last century. You did not know about email then. I was already a Fidonet point and had to choose a ‘handle’. I imagined all those messages composed of bits traveling on a stream… a bitstream.
