Me in a cafe. With lots of red lamp.
Original avatar; it is still being used elsewhere in some places in da web

First things first: I was born in 1977, so please work out my age yourself heh heh Smiley--;.png. My real name is Francis de Sales Pandu E Poluan (FYI, Francis de Sales is my patron saint. Yes, I'm a Catholic. You gotta problem with that?)

Okay, now that's behind me... um, I live inthe outskirts of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. I am familiar with computers since 11 y.o. (with videogames since 5 y.o. but that's a whole different story). My first computer was an Atari 800XL, then I 'graduated' to PCompatibles.

I am an Electronics Engineer specializing in Telecommunications Engineering, with special study of Data Communications / Computer Networks. I currently hold CCNA, MCSE, MCSA, and MCDBA certifications, and am pursuing CISA and CEH certifications. Naturally, with this qualification, I worked as a US Stock Options trader in my own company, which I established with 3 friends of mine: an ex-bartender, a doctor, and a tax accountant. Sadly, the company is now defunct. So I revert to my previous expertise and am now a Freelance IT Consultant. Tiresome job, though the pay is quite good Smiley--;.png

My first exposure to the world of Digital Audio is when CDs are first created sold in my country. Later on I got to know MP3. Never knew it's not the best compression, until I stumbled upon Then I found HydrogenAudio. And, as they say, the rest is history.

Ever since joining I had wished to contribute to the HA society, and thus I decided to dabble in this Wiki thingy Smiley--D.png Hope my contributions are welcomed.
