The time has come to rebrand my early witness test @paynode (#49) and reveal my intention as witness @roelandp and upgrade all my efforts for this. I want to seriously add my fair share of server support to this blockchain and have prepared for this in the past weeks:
I've run @paynode for about 7/8 weeks without any downtime and 2 blocks missed because of initial misconfiguration 1 block missed and 2 blocks missed because of a replay of the blockchain after a hardfork update. I know this shouldn't happen but I was a backup witness without a backup node... Those things have changed now.
If you want to learn more about me, I recommend you read my introduceyourself post. It deals about kitesurfing, windmills, pancakes, festivals and how I enrolled in computer life.
Through my company, Shoudio (a badly chosen "Shout-Audio" acronym), CMS and app production for location based media and numerous other web apps I've gained considerable knowledge in the fields of server maintenance and cloud based intense usage "solutions". At home I have some Raspberry Pi's with Arch Linux, Raspian, Kodi XBMC. Here is a RaspiCam to Youtube stream tutorial for you.

What I have brought to Steem to date:
- Initiator and organiser of SteemFest
- Initiator and maintainer of Steem Appcenter
- Promoted Steem at events via talks
- Added a little humor
- Made a selection of fun, celebrating, inspirographing, streeming, and useful apps

What I want to bring for Steem in the future:
- A reliable seed node and block signing through my witness infrastructure
- Continued promotion of Steem as a great base for decentralised apps (a job as developer evangelist I would see fit)
- Bring future SteemFest's across the world
- Promote Steem as the alternative, reliable and fast confirming cryptocurrency
