About me and my projects...

My areas of work and interest are divided into software and hardware technologies research. I have started in 1993 with an 80386SX/25MHz machine that initiated me into assembly and (object) Pascal language programming. Later moved to Turbo Vision and then developed my own SuperVision MS-DOS text mode visual framework. Since then a lot of various computers passed through my hands (based on Z80, x86/x64 derivates, Macintosh computers and many others that are not even popular or known). Next I started designing my own computers: some Z80 designs and even a 80286 based design that never was materialized due to lack of resources at the time. As for the hardware (electrical design and architecture), it followed me ever since I became conscious of the world around, as a child. After all, hardware and software go close together these days.

My projects are focused mainly on software architecture and development (Microprogramming TECHNIQUES being the name under I release all my programming work) and electrical design and architecture (Lumea Tuburilor which roughly translates to The Vacuum Tube World). The other projects listed on this page are presented by hobby means and/or presentation portfolio.

Recently I have decided to add a new sub-section to this site: the personal weblog. You will find there mostly technical thoughts and various development related stuff.

I am not responsable for any of the development work presented as freeware or shareware, and neither I am responsable for the hardware work you might attempt to replicate from the Lumea Tuburilor or the Passat 3A (B4) sites. They are provided as-is and are discontinued.

I have decided to launch this Internet site to simplify access, manage and converge all my projects. My oppinion is that this site is a fairly good way of sharing knowledge and information. So ...

enjoy reading and browsing through my projects.
