I work as a database programmer and multi-purpose geek in the "IT-Speicher" in Regensburg, Germany, and toy around with infrared thermography, unconventional r/c aircraft, aerial photography, and some other odd digital photography techniques in my free time.

I do have a website but for the moment it is horribly outdated.

I was a very active Openstreetmap mapper (back in 2007, when Regensburg almost completely missing on their map) and I've been a moderately, but constantly active Geocacher since 2006; these combine well with Geohashing expeditions.

I visited a lot of hashpoints in 2009, which was an amazing year - to a great extent thanks to geohashing expeditions and the people that accompanied me there. Since then my enthusiasm has faded a bit, so my weekend plans are no longer ruled by the DJIA, but I'm still looking for ones that would make for good day trips, and trying to at least pay a short visit to those hashpoints that are "too close not to go", which for me means that they're reachable from Regensburg by bicycle, including the corners of the neighbor graticules:

Nürnberg 49 11 Regensburg 49 12
München 48 11 Landshut 48 12

I have also been seen in other graticules across central Europe a few times, due to vacations and dedicated geohashing trips.

I can be found idling around in #geohashing most of the time, and I've built a program to generate Maps and Statistics about graticules and expeditions on the wiki.

... and several other achievements (virgin, drag-along, deja-vu, proxy, hashcard, frozen, meet-up, midnight, water...) which I've moved to a separate page.

I'm particularly looking for opportunities for these in the future:

a Border geohash in the Czech Republic, more Proxy Geohash variants, MNIMB Geohash, Consecutive Geohash, more Meet-Up Achievements, Origin Geohash, Tron achievement.
