About me

My name is Dennis Karlsson and I'm 46 years old. Born and raised in Ljungaverk, a little village in the middle of Sweden. I lived there with my mom, dad and my brother. Of course I lived up to my name and was a little menace but eventually I grew up a bit. =)
I went to primary and junior school in Ljungaverk (age 7-12) and then senior school in Fränsta (age 13-15). I got my college education at Västermalmsskolan in Sundsvall where I read technical classes. After the school years I did my military training in Östersund for 10 months. I have studied PC-technics and I've done computers quite some time now as they have always interested me a lot.

I live in Stockholm with my girlfriend, my son and my daughter. I'm a Systems Engineer by profession. I work with UNIX and Linux systems and networks. Some earlier professions I've had are web developing, PC technician and electronics assembling.

My biggest interests are computers (UNIX/Linux, programming and messing with hardware and networks). I also like music. I especially like country music, artists such as Dwight Yoakam, George Jones, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis and some of the younger generation too, like the early work of Brad Paisley, Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, Garth Brooks and Ashley Monroe. I also like Bluegrass. Billy Strings w/band is a great bluegrass band.

Generally I like New Traditionalist (Neotraditional) and Bakersfield Sound country music styles, but I also listen to Traditional Country and Honky Tonk. I understand that most people, at least in Europe, doesn't like hardcore country music but... if it makes you feel better... I also like metal/rock music.

I play the guitar, but not as much as I should to become better. I also play the bass and the banjo. My instruments are a few Gibson Les Paul Standards, connected to Marshall stacks or a Fender Twin Reverb. I also have a Fender Telecaster, Fender Nashville B-Bender Telecaster, Fender Precision Bass and a 5-string Banjo.

I like cars and I like to race on track, but I really hate commuting by car. In august 2017 I started Sim Racing. In the simulator I mostly drive the Porsche 991.2 GT3 R.
