About Orbnet

is just a domain name space where I put my personal IT infrastructure in.



The easiest way to get in contact with me is to write to hostmaster@orbnet.ch. To get my postal address simply point your whois tool to orbnet.ch and voila you can contact me by snail mail.


To contact me more personal use the following channels


Email Address: thomber@orbnet.ch

It is not a big deal but I prefere to receive text only emails. HTML or rich text formated email bodies are of course looking nice but email is more about exchanging information rather than making it blinky and shiny.

And just as a note, receiving an email with my email address as sender address does not guarantie at all that the email has realy been written by me. In case there is a gpg signature attached you can verifiy it with the information below.

Jabber (XMPP)

JID: thomber@orbnet.ch

To try to get in contact with me mor interactively you can contact me by Jabber. I don't normaly trust any incomming Jabber contact since I prefer to get you to know via other channels (or real life) first.


X.509 Zertificates

After depending on CAcert for years for most of my x509 server certificates I switched over to exclusivley use Let's Encryt certificates for the obiuse reasone the gain a broader trust level and a better expirience on the user side. In case you have questions about the authenticity of the certificates in use, simply get in contact with me.


For personal communication I may use the follow PGP/GnuPG key B94E5595B03BA5449CC85DCF68889E22DFC73164

You can either try to fetch the key from a gpg key server or download it here.


I'd like to thank to all these hard working open source communities out there which made it even possible that we can run IT services on such a high tech level without being confrontated with high license coast at all. These are just a handful of greate open source projects that made my life easier every day:

… and mutch more!

A special credit should go to the blender guru which provides a greate tutorial about How to Make Earth (Cycles) that helped me a lot to make this site looks spacier in no time.
