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.

What is happening here? First some explanation. 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 three random best stared images. 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 and if there was a comment it will be printed on the photo too. The page is using the dojo javascript toolkit to slide in the three images every 4 seconds.
