About me

Web development

I develop web solutions all the time. I am interested in web standards, usability, accessibility, responsive web design and similar everyday challenges. I prefer to take advantages of new browser features as soon as they are supported by major browsers, backed up with a graceful degradation.

Free Software

I participate in Free Software development by making, promoting, translating, testing software, reporting problems or ideas, submitting patches and by helping other users. I release my programs under free software licenses.

I participate in making a free map of the world, OpenStreetMap. We go out with GPS or paper and pen, or often just draw over the available satellite imagery. Streets, turn restrictions, turn lanes, houses, shops, opening hours and basically everything you can see on the street.

Commodore 64

Many years ago, I was an active coder on the C64 demoscene, under nickname Lion (CSDB), member of groups: Chaos, Chromance, Resource and Kempelen. I write some articles and programs related to C64 and IDE64. I have a site for my collection of Commodore related books and magazines (Hungarian).

DIY bookscanner, DjVu

Archiving historic documents is a very good opportunity in this digital era. By joining the DIY bookscanner community, building my own scanner and researching the excellent DjVu format, I can participate in this work.
