Hi, Marcelv here. Online since 1992. First with 1200baud, but soon with 14k4 and even 19k2.

I like the smell of an old radio whose tubes slowly come to life when you turn it on, with those typical odors of the wax on the capacitors and the varnish on the coils and transformers. I love the smell of soldering tin or an Elektor or RAM magazine that I've kept since the 1980s, but also the smell of freshly printed PLA that you smell as your carefully designed 3D model slowly comes to life with OpenScad.

My first hosting provider was VIA (Venlo Internet Access). Below their website from 1996. Because the new HTML version (version 2) is used, Netscape version 1.1 is recommended to view the site :-)

On this site some of my creations: gadgets I've made and handy scripts that I use every day.

I design objects to print on one of my 3d printers. Due to technical problems with Thingiverse I often put them here now.
