Seems that I've been tagged by Mike Nichols, so I'm supposed to come up with 5 things you don't know about me; here goes:

  • I've started playing music when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I've played guitar until I was about 16 years old. At that age, I stopped playing music. I didn't wan't to do it anymore. I was supposed to go to music classes each wednesday afternoon, and each saterday morning and I wanted to do other things during that time. :) Sometimes, I regret it though that I didn't continue with that guitar-thing. (I still have my guitar though, and maybe I'll pick it up again in the future)

  • I don't like cheese.
    Well, that's not completely true; I don't eat cheese 'as is', but I do like food that has cheese as an ingredient (pizza, croque monsieur, tiramissu, heck I even like cheese-burgers). I also like Cheetos. Weird huh?

  • I started programming relatively late. I was 17 years old when I wrote my first computer program.

  • I always wanted to become a pilot. Not on airliners, but a jet pilot. :) At age 16, I've sent a letter to the Belgian Air Force to enquire for more information about this. A few days later, I've received an information bundle about it. Unfortunately, I never took part in any of the 'promotions' of the Belgian Air Force. Maybe I was already realistic about my chances: there are only very few positions (about 4 each year) and numerous candidates.
    I haven't lost my interest in jets though; I still like to visit air-shows (although since a plane crashed at the Ostend Airshow in 1997, air-shows in Belgium aren't what they used to be...).
    If I would ever have the chance to be a passenger in a two-seater, I'd certainly do it!

  • I do like karting. Until a few years ago, I used to do it at least once a week. Unfortunately, I'm not able to keep up that frequency right now. I'm already happy if I can go karting once a month.
    I also dream of driving an open-wheel formula race car once (Formula One, Formula Ford, F3000, ... whatever
