Welcome!

This site serves as my playground for software development with tools like Java, PHP and PostgreSQL (not to mention HTML, CSS, and JavaScript). As such, it is continuously under construction, will probably never be 'complete', and should not be considered the best dipiction of my capabilities ;).

I may also feel the need to spout-off about my other interests, including chess, acoustics, and music. So, feel free to drop me a line to tell me how much you think this site sucks!
