I make music under the name "dmed". This is my personal portal for uploading my stuff. It is made (and maintained) for fun and also for learning. It is written in plain HTML/CSS but some pages on this site use PHP.

Other content relates to old computers, retro games and computer OSs like OpenBSD and Linux.

I have an image blog named 'xv' which is an ongoing learning project (couldn't think of a better name).


Born in the 70s, grew up in the 80s. First computer owned was a Commodore 16. I played games and typed in programs from magazines. I was never good at programming so I mostly just played games. I didn't own a C64 until the very late 80s. My all time favourite computer was the Commodore Amiga. First an Amiga 500 and then later on the A1200. I spent a lot of hours making music with OctaMED and Protracker. I was also a Nintendo fanboi, playing games on the NES, Snes, N64 and then the Gamecube. By the time the Wii was released I had lost all interest in consoles and had moved to PC.

I'm currently interested in Linux/BSD operating systems, playing League of Legends or Arma3 or making music with Ableton Live.

Why does this website exist?

Because I'm a self hosting landchad that runs his own #homelab.

A favourite quote: "There is no 'cloud', just other people's computers" -- Richard Stallman

I'm also (very lazily) learning full stack web development and doing this is my hobby. I had a few goals in mind when I started this project. A place to upload my music and other stuff and a site that qualifies for the 512KB Club.

Why not use social media?

No thanks. I preferred the old internet.

Back when websites were static and there was no Javascript. When webpages were actually interesting and weren't bombarding you with ads and trying to sell you stuff.
