Ashfaq - Just another guy

Hello humans,

I am Ashfaq, In my day job, I work at Broadridge as a Solutions Architect. My alter-ego and online handle is yukikaze, inspired by Chohei Kambayashi’s “Good Luck, Yukikaze”.

Different people have different descriptions for me, but the one that stands out is from my sister, according to her i am a “Kid with a credit card”

I am an introvert and have been into computing since early schooling (see the pattern?). I grew up watching Ghost in the shell, Reruns of Bladerunner, Tron… to name a few. These heavily influenced my choices and thoughts. and yeah, I love Mobile Suit Gundam,

I like to build stuff, and learn new things computing or non-computing. I find my zen, building plastic models and dioramas.

My hobby on this discourse (if I can) would be to push @meet , @bernhard to great levels of frustration.

I am a beginner level audiophile. With a huge collection of earphones. Each for a specific purpose. I like to listen to Synthwave, Instrumentals and various others… Listening to Kenji Kawai’s Utai IV on the right set of earphones does lift your spirit.

I am a huge fan of Mechanical Keyboards and build my own. Yes, i am “that guy” who brings his own keyboard to office.

Happy to meet you all. Hoping to build something great.

And speaking of the blog post. I suggest posting that in the News section, possibly the Tutorials / Guides subsection.

It doesn’t allow me to post in the Tutorials / Guides section. Maybe one of you folks can post it.

I’m glad I didn’t make the @meet and @bernhard cut of being pushed to great levels of frustration. And you forgot to mention your expertise in Indian ice cream chains!

I would eat infinite amounts of that.

Now I need to find a place that sells gulab jamun in Zürich. Got a craving…
