Welcome to
I See T - A Pun for ICT

What to expect to find on this site (over time)

There will be different timelines about as example the Windows evolution or simply the ICT history

Some of them will be in german and other in english (it’s written in the menu within the brackets)

The Data Tables will contain different commands from Windows, Games during history and so on.

All what I think is important will be mentioned.

If you want/need something else you may write me later over the contact page.

There will be dedicated pages about hard- and/or software.

This contains CPU sockets, connectors (internal and external ones) and so on.

If you see something missing just contact me.

Under Various I’ll but all which won’t have a dedicated category.

There will be as example the FAQs and Glossary.

Updates 2024

During the last days and weeks I’m working on updates on this site and so many points are changing for 2024 an above.
Check down what’s already changed or what is going to change…

To make the navigation on this site easier the menu is changed to just display on top the main categories of the site (except for Home). If you choose one of these categories you will be lead to a page with some information and a new menu on the right side with items from that category.

Also every category is reachable over a subdomain. So you simply type https://hardware.iseet.fans and you will land directly on the correct page 🙂

I’ve added a new download system. Ad I wasn’t happy with the plugin I once used (WordPress Download Manager – I bought it but got more than disapointed) I decided to use my directories plugin to make the downloads available. You can find the page here.

Unfortunately you won’t see the size of the download but I think in our times this is not that important anymore.

I’m also adding some FAQ for Linux users like how to use ddrescue to recover lost data or how to ban an IP from your system.

More and more I will move over to english only on this site.

Some entries are still german and some videos are german and will stay in german as I won’t redo them but new entries and the text will be available in english.

I removed the Koken section. Not many visits were registered and so I don’t see the need of it anymore.

I still have a copy as also everything I wrote is still existing, just in the WordPress bin 😛


As no one wrote in the Guestbook I also removed this one.

You can still use the contact form or simply mail me at frank@iseet.fans



Why I See T

I created a dedicated ICT page as it was too much for our family page.

As all ICT related TLDs were taken I was thinking about what to take else as name.

Than my wife popped up with the idea to use a pun for ICT and so I See T was born 🙂

Thanks Nathalie Goedert 🙂

Windows Support Technician also known as Specialist for Layer 8 Problems (insider will understand)

Since July 1st, 1999 I have been working as an IT technician who went to the customers’ home or office to solve their problems. This made me see a broad range of problems and helped me to develop my analysis skills to the top. Also, I saw during those years a multitude of PCs, servers, printers and all other kind of hard- and software.

As I am a technician who loves learning by doing I learned nearly all in that way and not by doing training. (for server diagnosis I bought as example my own server to work/test on it at home).

So over the years I worked for many companies like Data Team Luxembourg, Tree Top or Vesperia (to only mention a few of them) and I mainly worked in all those companies as field technician.

In the years 2011 till 2015 I worked for my self. I mainly supported doctors with a software called GECAMed, which I memorized over the years and most of the time I was nearly the only person who gave support for that program.

Unfortunately in 2013 I trusted the wrong persons and lost nearly all what I owned (over 100.000€ in damage).

I never really recovered from that and so I had to stop my activity in 2015

After my self-employment trip, I came back to the normal IT market and started to work for the Deutsche Bank (first external for Sogeti and then, since 01.02.2017, as internal employee). Unfortunately, they decided to not continue with my contract (from August until the end of the year 2017 over 100 employees had to go, especially from the IT sector). During that period, I used Service Now as ticket system and was mainly employed for Level 2 support (remote, phone and even onsite support). I had to create documentation for mainly the Level 1 support desk to improve the first call resolution. As well I generated an internal webpage for the users with self-explaining documentations (screenshots and point to point explanations). Furthermore, I created the Level 2 documentation for the other team members as I was the best (and/or fastest) in resolving problems due to my knowledge acquired all the years before, outside a service desk.

As I love IT, I am always staying open to learn everything new which is of course IT related. In that point, I must say that I never liked programming (applications) that much and that is why I never learned it but for the web development this is totally different.
I always created sites (mostly based on Joomla or WordPress CMS) as hobby and now I wanted to do that on a professional level too and looking at the market I often found offers for technician with web development skills (that was another reason for learning this). As the ADEM offers the Fit4Coding – WebForce3 course in web development, a course which I already wanted to do in 2016, I this time directly asked to get added on the list for the new session which was ideally in English and so I started the course on 04.01.2018 and ended it, of course successfully, on 27.04.2018.

After that I started to work as technician again, not as Web Developer, for the company where on of the WebForce 3  course teachers came from but I didn’t like the job too much (the company was OK!! – I mention this as many people thought that I didn’t like Vesperia)

So at the end, since Mai 2nd, 2019, I work for the government of Luxembourg and that again as technician. Here I am now a Windows Support agent and we have to maintain over 12000 computer distributed all over my country, Luxembourg.

I’m still continuing to learn new things in IT but I’m doing much less now than in my time when I was young. The point is now that I need the money for my family and no longer only for IT hardware lol.


What is ICT

Information and communication technology (ICT) is another/extensional term for information technology (IT) that stresses the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals), computers as well as necessary enterprise software, middleware, storage, and audio-visual systems, which enable users to access, store, transmit, and manipulate information.

The term ICT is also used to refer to the convergence of audio-visual and telephone networks with computer networks through a single cabling or link system. There are large economic incentives (huge cost savings due to elimination of the telephone network) to merge the telephone network with the computer network system using a single unified system of cabling, signal distribution and management.

However, definition, as "the concepts, methods and applications involved in ICT are constantly evolving on an almost daily basis." The broadness of ICT covers any product that will store, retrieve, manipulate, transmit or receive information electronically in a digital form, e.g. personal computers, digital television, email, robots. For clarity, Zuppo provided an ICT hierarchy where all levels of the hierarchy "contain some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications". Skills Framework for the Information Age is one of many models for describing and managing competencies for ICT professionals for the 21st century.
