Welcome to my place with personal interests. From electronics to old and modern hardware and software to traveling and classical antiquity. See the list of websites I maintain.

It all started with Philips electronic kits in my youth (Pionier I and the EE8), a Praktika  photo camera for black and white photos and color slides, PDP-11’s and Pascal in the science labs during university and a KIM-1 at home. And traveling during the summer.

Working with electronics started early in my youth: The Philips Pionier Junior and the EE8 have had a huge influence in my choice of study and early career. While working for the dutch magazine Radio Bulletin as a freelance editor my interests shifted from electronics to microprocessors like the 6502 and computers. On the left you find pointers to my former Philips Bouwdozen collection, my former LP collection and the Radio Bulletin articles written by me.

The other subsites, summed up below, show my interest in travel photography, classical antiquity, and retro computing (1970 to 1980) with the 6502, 6809 and Z80.

Links to the sites on hansotten and sophiechermin domains which lead to our other interests.

This main website is about my former collections,electronic kits (my former Philips bouwdozen mainly), my former LP collection and my Radio Bulletin articles written as editor of that electroncis magazine from 1977 to 1986.




My personal blog. Ramblings about what interests me, not directly related to one of the next websites.
