Domain PurposeI use this website to share some things I've done — mainly PHP scripts, but also some pictures and videos.
About MeYou can contact me through the contact form; I'm always happy to receive mail.
I live in Switzerland and am studying programming at the University of Zürich (finished the third semester). I love programming in PHP and know a bit of Java and C++ thanks to university courses.
I speak French, German and English natively; English is the language I speak the worst of the three. Languages interest me a lot: I've been learning Dutch off and on for three years and completed a Russian class last semester at university. A rather uncommon interest I have is knowing how languages are written and how they sound, and the ability to identify them.
While I'm not much of a gamer, I do enjoy a good game, such as Tomb Raider III, Mirror's Edge or Minecraft. I've been spending a lot of time on Minecraft as of 2011 and ran a little 11-slot server for over a year, which was very much fun.
Music is something I enjoy a lot. I like bands such as Placebo, Tegan & Sara, The Cure, UnderOATH, Sigur Rós, Alesana and We Came As Romans, to name a few. I've played the piano for 5 years, but was never particularly good or passionate about it.
Domain historyI originally purchased this domain in December 2006 to host my fan site about Californian nu-metal band KoRn, after running a fan site on a free website service for a couple of years. The site got closed in May 2007 mainly due to lack of interest.
Some random temporary pages followed thereafter. Having begun PHP by the start of 2007, I still enjoyed programming and decided to use this place to share my script(s) (only sudoPHP at the time) and YouTube videos. From there, it slowly evolved to what you see now.
My day counter script and UTF-8 CuteNews are the most popular pages.
Most icons are from the great Silk icons collection of FamFamFam.Com.
All PHP, XHTML and CSS has been written manually in Notepad++ or plain ol' Notepad.
This site uses PHP 5.3.24.
