About me:

I grew up in Möllbrücke, Kärnten.  After finishing "Gymnasium" in Spittal/Drau studied Elektrotechnik (see below) at the Technical University in Vienna until the nascent electronic data processing profession called.  I joined Weigl Büromaschinen which was bought by Univac which was bought by Sperry and finally became Unisys.  I worked 40 years, 1 month, and 9 days for this company in various positions, finishing my work as their representative to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC22 WG20 - I chaired this committee for Internationalization (I18N) for many years.  I retired by the end of 2004 to have fun with my wife Marlene and my hobby Photography. 

 

Hobbies:

 

My main hobby is Photography and for the last few years teaching a class called:

"So you got a digital camera for Christmas, or Channukah, or Kwanza -- WHAT NOW ?" 

 

I also like to cook (and eat).

 


Favorite quote:

 

Si desint vires tamen est laudanda voluntas.

 

An interesting find:

My daughter Edith found my student ID from the Technical University in Vienna with a great picture of me from 1957.  I did look better then !  See and enjoy.
