About meSome words about me: I'm a 36 years old father of two boys (4 and 10 years old), married to a great wife. We are living in Erlangen, a City nearby Nuernberg in Germany/Bavaria.
My gaming skills are not unicum, but strong enough to have fun and don't get lost.
Usually I'm doing SQL Database development and .NET development with a bit of packaging with Windows Installer / ORCA.
I'm playing WoT on the european server.
You can contact me via eMail on marius.czyz AT gmail.com or via PM on the WoT European Forum.
The language can be either english, german/deutsch or polish/po polsku.
