TINJAW Is Not Just Another Website. Tinjaw is also Chaim’s Nome de Net. If you haven’t noticed, TINJAW, like GNU, WINE, and YAML, is a recursive acronym. It is part of Chaim’s geeky nature and also just something he could come up with that wasn’t already taken by the billions of other Internet users.

Chaim Krause is an expert computer programmer with over thirty years of experience to prove it. He has worked as a lead tech support engineer for ISPs as early as 1995, as a senior developer support engineer with Borland for Delphi, and has worked in Silicon Valley for over a decade in various roles, including technical support engineer and developer support engineer. He is currently a military simulation specialist for the US Army’s Command and General Staff College, working on projects such as developing serious games for use in training exercises. He has also authored several video training courses on Linux topics, and has been a technical reviewer for over twenty books, including Programming for the Internet of Things (Microsoft Press, 2017). It seems only natural then that he would be an avid gamer and have his own electronics lab and server room in his basement. He currently resides in Leavenworth, Kansas with his partner, Ivana, and a menagerie of four-legged companions: their two dogs, Dasher and Minnie, and their three cats, Pudems, Talyn, and Alaska.
