My name is Flo and currently I live and work near Cologne, Germany. I like all kinds of nerdish computer gadgets, hacking and discovering all the stuff behind that blinky machines, especially with regards to IT security. I started being active with computers long, long before graphical user interfaces were state of the art. Thus I feel familiar with all the stuff that happens behind modern computer systems. I am able to write, read and understand 6502 and x86 assembler, I am fimliar with the x86's architecture, drivers, the Windows kernel, and the win32 API. I used many different operating systems in the past years, but if I have a choice I always use Microsoft Windows or a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian. This being said, I am a PC, not a Mac. Back in 2014 I have founded a company named Excubits. The company builds Windows Kernel-Mode protection drivers. The cores' base on the solid kernel drivers I have written about here in the last couple of years, so you might find some products on Excubits which were "born" at bitnuts.

Beside computers, cooking and doing sports are also an essential part of my life. I like free climbinghiking, biking and fitness training as well.

This web page was not crafted for any special purpose, just look at it as some kind of central anchor beyond volatile addresses, social web services or phone numbers. In first instance I started bitnuts.de just for having my own domain, then it was some kind of sink hole to exchange all kinds of digital stuff with my buddies, long before Google+, facebook, WordPress or DropBox made such things convenience.

In the last few years I used this place to post all kind of stuff I am currently interested in. I publish tools I have written, post tutorials, feature other sites and content etc. This site is like a personal wall where I pin-post my thoughts on - more formally, it now seems to be some kind of blog, although it was not planned to be one.

Thanks for visiting.
