Who am I?

I am Thomas, and Hebron, a programming and electronics enthusiast. I've been doing electronics projects for about 10 years, using the AVR micro controller. The last couple of years programming has really peaked my interest, especially C#, Python and PHP. I live in Norway with my girl friend and our two twin boys. Read more on my profile page.
