about me

I'm Toralf.

I was born in 1967 in Anklam in the northern part of the 1990 dissolved East Germany. In 1993 I made my graduate engineer in Electrical Engineering ("Technical Cybernetics and Automation Technology") at the University Rostock. Since 1998 I live in Hamburg, a great town.

I like reading news papers and books, watching linear TV and playing card games. At birthday my wish is always the world peace but at least a good book. My favourite writers are Ian Mortimer (mediƦvalist), Ulrich Ritzel (crime), Eugen Ruge and Ingo Schulze (novelists). Years ago I started visiting european capitols in my holidays. Tallinn and Kiev were planned to be the next cities - unfortunately this plan is overruled by obvious reasons. I run 2 dozen Tor relays and bridges. And, I'm a Gentoo Linux developer.


I call myself being an "IT engineer" (my Xing profile).


Replace flarot with toralf in flarot.foerster@gmx.de or flarot@jabber.ccc.de. (PGP: 1A376F99 4A9D026F 13E24DCF C4EACDDE 0076E94E). I registered the nick toralf at the IRC networks Libera, OFTC and hackint. Usually I hang around in #gentoo, #gentoo-dev, #tor-relays and #ccchh. My source code is at GitHub, at GitLab I just have an account.
