About Me

Hi there, my name is Anko van der Ziel. I am a 34 year old guy from The Netherlands.

Currently I live together with my wife and two cats in Amersfoort. We’ve lived here since 2010 in the nice and quiet neighborhood of Kattenbroek. Just like many people, I have too many hobbies for the little time that I have. Most of my time is spent on running, long-distance walking, watching movies and tv-series, reading and working with computers as an open-source enthusiast.

Why this blog?

As I noticed more and more people have their own blogs, pages or random websites on the Internet, I decided I want to get some presence on the Internet as well. This allows me to present myself, show who I am and what I am about, want to get a place to put some thoughts on-line. Furthermore I want to use it as a storage for Linux and security related stuff such as my PGP key (Fingerprint=3931 15B9 1401 3E29 687F 5094 03D6 2A89 BA82 BE0B) and configuration guides.

More about me:

After being on-line for quite some years now, there’s quite a bit of web-presence and history available. Although I have removed some profiles, details and other stuff over the past years, this is at least some stuff which remains on-line for now:
