Welcome to my personal research environment. I am a webmaster with over 10 years of experience. I have been working for a couple of international companies as webmaster, web designer, web analyst, web developer, web server administrator. My hart goes out to the open source community. Yes, I am a proud Linux user for years and I converted many people around me to use it too. Especially if they wanted my help from time to time ;-)

WARNING: This website is *never* finished and more often broken even ... but you might find beautiful flowers here. I irregularly play around with the code every now and then and basically do not care if this site is working perfectly. I test new ideas and technology out etc. I try to keep important parts of my website as up to date as possible...I use the dojo javascript toolkit as base for this website already for a couple of years.

Click on the different pane titles below to open up their beauty...

What is happening here? First some explenation. I have a great photo/video management tool called Shotwell where I have stored like 10000+ photos. Inside Shotwell I can easily tag photo's, add titles and rate them. Shotwell stores all this data in an Sqlite3 database.

When you start looking at this page the magick starts. I query the sqlite database and get a random 5 stared image.

Then imagick, an imagemagick php frontend, is used to resize the image (as they are to big for web usage) and to change it into a polaroid style photo. For instance the shade is semi-transparent to the wooden wall. The page using the dojo toolkit to slide in a new image every 4 seconds. Funny thing is that at the same time I can work in Shotwell.
