Over the years I’ve created quite some code and other stuff, mostly Microsoft Office macros or home-automation related. The intent has always been to ease my life by reducing the number of repetetive tasks in either my professional or personal life. Most of what you’ll find here has been shared before on specific forums or sites, but with this site I’m trying to bundle the whole lot together in a single place. Basically to share whatever I’ve created with anyone who has some use for it, but also for my own reference.

For the time being, it will only contain techie stuff. So if you know me personally and arrived here based on my name, you probably won’t find anything usefull (this is my secret life). And if you don’t know me and arrived here on content, you may very well have come to the right place for what you’re looking for.

So here we go, with an all new site. WordPress this time replacing the previous Joomla site that never really got beyond the default installed templates.
For now this seems so much simpler and easier to grasp, not that Joomla was so complicated, I just didn’t care enough to take the time to set it all up.

Any way, now that its here, lets try to make it useful. So first I’ll be adding some of my older (but still useful) stuff that was previously uploaded only at specific websites. (basically that is everything you’ll find on this site that is dated before this post)
