Jakie: Hello man. For first i want to ask whats your name, how old are you and where do you live? ZTN: The name’s Butston Freem…I mean Sten Uusvali. I’m 30 1/2 years old and I live in a small white house up on a hill =)

Jakie: As I see making maps is a hobby for you? So, where do u work, what are u doing? :) ZTN: I’ve been balancing with my mapmaking in between hobby and commercial mapmaking. So far it’s been more like a hobby indeed, but who knows what the future might bring. But the true profession of mine is programming. I’m a software developer in a small, privatly owned Californian company located in San Diego. As my business card says…”Senior Programmer”…but being so close to the Mexican border it sometimes translates to “Senor Programmer” ;)

Jakie: What computer languages do u know? (I mean c++, delphi, php etc.) ZTN: I use actively C++, Delphi, x86 assembler…and that’s about it. I also know Basic and a tiny bit of Java, but I’m quite ignorant at the Web-programming field.
