CoderOnline - where visions become reality

still under active development since spring 2000 #

This website was started as a digital playground for web technologies in the early new millennium. The previous version of this web site has been online for around 15 years and was based on a self written content management system, written in Perl and optimized for connections with 8KiB/sec downstream.

The site always hosted self written software, tutorials and a lot of personal stuff. But most importantly it used to be the central point where all my stuff was linked together in a way and I will try to get to this point again after so many years.

Thank you so much for being here. Enjoy your visit!
