Olaf Kirch has a degree in Mathematics from Technische Universitaet
Darmstadt. He presently works as a UNIX programmer for a company
producing a CAD system. A Linux fan for a couple of years now, he is
amazed at the pace its development continues to progress.
For relaxation, Olaf likes painting, drawing, and reading (anything
from nineteenth century poetry to detective novels and Japanese
manga). He likes to spend time outdoors whenever possible. He doesn't
have a driver's license (never had one), so he goes about most of his
daily routine by bicycle. When he gets away from his keyboard for more
than a few days, he likes to go mountain-walking.
