The text beginning in the right of this is the attempt at an explanation (read: excuse ;-) ) of the existance of this page and a short description of what I am doing all the time I am not home and what I am doing at home with all this rubbish.
The only things you can do here are:

I've had to enter some URL for the point "Home page" in my http- browser- configuration. So I had to write this page. ;-)
However, since you are here I have to explain what this is all about.
In fact I am one of those who feel like home if they see a shell in front of them - but sometimes (not often, really!) one of the worst possible cases happens and I have to do some work for someone who wants an html- frontend.
A frontend for what? Now, I spent the most of my time with administering some company-networks of UNIX-machines, most of them came from Silicon Graphics (with IRIX) or Hewlett Packard (with HP-UX somewhere under the patches). In addition there are a few PC's equipped with Linux wich are used as dial- up- router or firewall.
There were some people on that network who wanted to see who has taken a specific license from our license- servers and I were asked if I could make this possible via an html- frontend, since tools like "lmstat" and so on were too complicated for those people. This is one example for a point at which I had to write html.
To get back to the point: We use Apache as httpd in that company and I wanted to try out something different. Something that's not all that overloaded. That seems to have at least a chance to be secure. And that's not as fat as the Apache web server is. "thttpd" seems to be exactly what I were looking for, but I have to try it at home. So I wrote this text to fill the resulting space - and why shouldn't I use this server for my own purposes from the outside of my network? So here it is, reachable via modem, ISDN and the Internet.
And that's not the only thing I am
experimenting with at home: The flatnet
consists of an linux-NFS-server, an
linux discless PC as desktop, two
HP-UX-11-machines (one as desktop, one
for small services like DNS and IRC),
an IRIX-machine (my third desktop) and
another linux-PC as firewall, disc- and
