I am Johannes Findeisen, born in December 1979 in Lugala (Tanzania 🇹🇿), but I am german and live in Germany.

My motto: Keep it simple, complexity fails!

I worked as a Linux systems administrator (mostly RHEL) and software developer (C, Java, PHP, Python etc.) since 2002 in the past. These days I work as a systems analyst, trying to catch you before you succeed... ;)

My favorite programming languages are C and Python, but I am familiar with PHP, Java, Lua, Ruby etc. too.

My daily tasks are mostly done using a command-line interpreter like Bash or Zsh. In my job I also used Ksh as a Shell because it is very portable to other UNIX operating systems like *BSD and IBM AIX. Personally I prefer the Zsh Shell.

In my spare time I like biking, fishing, creating electronic music and making electronics stuff using AVR microcontrollers and boards like Arduino, Raspberry Pi and boards based on an RP2040 microcontroller using CircuitPython and MicroPython.

When having too much time, in the winter maybe, I love to play old retro games from Nintendo or SEGA using a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie installed... :)

I love the nature.

I love Free Software.

I love simple written code (KISS), so I try to do so as well.

My timezone is CET (UTC +01:00).

You will not find me on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube etc.!


I love Linux.

I do not like systemd. Why?, (Further reading:

This is why I really like the following systemd free Linux distributions:

  • Adelie - Looks awesome and powerfull; Rock solid like Alpine Linux
  • Alpine - My favorite for servers actually
  • Artix - My favorite for desktops
  • Devuan - If I need some Debian based OS, but without systemd
  • Funtoo - Daniel Robbins' original Gentoo philosophy based distribution
  • Gentoo - I am a user since day 1!
  • Void - Many packages and useful for desktops and servers; Very solid!


The logo of this homepage was created at that time I registered in late 2000. It was my brother Jakob who took some files from the web and merged them! :) Thank you, Jakob!


This website is built using Jekyll, a simple, blog-aware, static site generator. I do not like Ruby but Jekyll is a very awesome project and it works. I wrote the gallery creation script in Ruby just because I was in that world. Nowadays, I would prefer Python, but Ruby does the job well. So why change the language for this site? They all do the same... :)

This website is making use of Fork Awesome, a fork of the iconic font and CSS toolkit.

This website is making use of jQuery, a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library.*

This website is making use of Lity, an ultra-lightweight, accessible and responsive lightbox.*

This website is making use of sorttable, a JavaScript library to make tables sortable.*

This website runs using the webserver lighttpd.

* = This website mostly should work even when JavaScript is disabled in your browser, but some dynamic functions like the contact form would not. Content will always be accessible even with JavaScript disabled.

This website looks best using a Mozilla based web browser like Firefox. Sure it looks fine in other browsers I've tested, but Mozilla renders CSS more gracefully than the others...

Other Sites

I am running some other sites (I had some more in the past):

  • - My old business site. (I have no business anymore since Covid-19)
  • - My parents old business website. One of the first websites I've ever created. At that time I used frames but now it is refactored to arrange the design using CSS.
  • - Mostly the entry site for some mirrors I am hosting.
  • - A work in progress to create a technical Blog about... Hmm, Linux and UNIX maybe?


This server runs the Alpine Linux distribution using the Linux operating system Kernel.

This server is hosted at netcup. Very awesome hosting and support!

The traffic statistics show you some information about the data flow on this server. They are normally being auto generated every 5 minutes.


I am running mirrors for the following projects:
