Welcome to my personal web site. It's a snapshot of things I've been
doing and what some of my interests are. Since life is ever changing
it's at best a distorted summary of the real me, but let's see how
well I can do!
I'm employed as a software developer and systems administrator, which
is great as from a very young age I've had an interest in computers
and what can be done with them. I can recall watching cartoons on TV
that showed these mammoth electronic devices called "computers" that
were covered with switches, dials, and blinking lights. That's
probably what directed my interest at the real home computers that
came along some time later. By that time I was old enough not to be
disappointed that they weren't huge machines with blinking lights;
instead I started programming them to make them do interesting things,
and a hobby was born.
I may make a living via computers but I'm not just a computer
enthusiast. I've had a great many hobbies over the years and the work
I do is the one that pays the bills for the others. If your job is
just a job and you're not happy with it then I ask you: Why are you
still doing it?
Toomas is a perfectly ordinary Estonian
name, pronounced sort of like this: The double O is like the O in
sort, the A as in father. Stress is on the first syllable, not the second!
