This part of my web site addresses various computer issues ranging from web pages written for handheld devices such as the Sony Ericsson T610 cellular phone to Macintosh text conversions of Continental European languages. It used to be a dedicated Macintosh user area with my own tips and tricks, but the scope widened after 2003, when I learned more technologies. The Macintosh relating pages are oldest and target users with a beginner's or medium computer knowledge, whereas newer ones are more into the art of web technologies.
I got my first Macintosh in April 1990 and I have done it all the way from System 6 to the Leopard.
I have no formal training in computer science (apart from a couple of programming
classes in primary school 1974-76, but that was in the stone age [
a third generation
datamat, yeah, that's what they called that box at the size of two refrigerators and a storage capacity of a Macintosh II]). I am a university graduate in Eastern European philologies (Balkan and Russian). Thus the focus is on texts, text processing, text research, and text exchange between Eastern and Western European languages and between the Macintosh and Windows platforms.
