Favorite flavor of OS: Debian unstable (which is usually not that unstable, after all)
Dream machine: Something with a lot of tracks and marbles. This is a good example.
Unpopular opinion you have: Most coding conventions are exaggerate: code can be easily read even if there are inconsistencies in how it is formatted.
What’s a rule you always bend or break? Ask my wife, she has a long list.
Morning bird or night owl? When you have a little kid, you don't get to decide (but neither you know which one in advance: every night is a new experience).
What did you eat for breakfast? Milk, rusks with jam and honey and a piece of cake made by my wife.
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing the rest of your life, what is it? Time, especially time to study and learn new things.
If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be? I would do some dice rolling to decide. There are too many beautiful places in the world.
Would you rather have invisibility or flight? Flight, of course.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A tow truck driver.
Would you go with aliens if they beamed down from earth? I'd pay them a visit, but I'm happy where I live now, so I would want to come back after the visit.
