Hi! I am firstname.lastname@example.org (== Markus Freericks, but don't try to pronounce
it; many people call my "mfx"). I am senior programmer at Das Büro am
Draht; I am also proud owner of a PhD in computer science, something that
most people i know try to abstain from making too many jokes about. (I
have also won the 1st place in the 1st Kaiserlautern Shortest C Contest,
Category "most perverse solution", and I have been an ordained Reverend of
the Universal Life Church since 1995).
My dear friend and colleague Mika Alakustekin (I wouldn't try to pronounce
that, either) wrote a game called "Hit the Brain", in which he
If you have found this page, you will have seen the game; I hope you
- demonstrates his abilities with Flash 4 and
- tries to promote a nickname of his for me ("the brain"), which, as far
as i know, is not much in use by anyone else; but as i am as vain as the
next guy, i won't try to stop it.
For those of you interested in me, Mika, or the place we work at, here are
a few links:
- my homepage (yeah, it is small;
but its roots go way back to '92 or '93. Pity i can't find a backup of one
of my really old site: I still rememer the time when the first browser
with table support was released. Yep, I am that old) It is also in German
and features obscure jokes that I seemingly can't explain to anyone.
- Mika's homepage, which is
much more flashy than mine; even if it is a bit lacking in content
- the Das Büro am Draht GmbH
homepage, which is not flashy at all, since nobody comes around to
update it, so it has stayed much the same for the last three years.
