Hello there, you have found the internet home of me. I’m called V or Chris – whatever fits better.
This page contains my microblog (and blog), where I post small things happening in my life. I’m a software developer by day and a tinkerer by night.
You can find out some more details about me and my favorite past times in the following sections.
Reading books is a significant pastime for me. Some of my most liked books are Jumper, the Harry Potter series, The Wheel of Time, and A Song of Ice and Fire.
In the “Reading” section of this page, you find the current book I’m reading at the moment. And a list of past books I’ve read with my reviews and thoughts about them.
Listed here are links to my posts collecting the book reviews per year:
I like to spend my time designing and building furniture. Or thinker with electronics. I like projects at the intersection of wood and electronics. And am still dreaming of building my CPU one day (see 8/16 cpu).
In 2018 I started a Youtube Channel to document my making projects. The channel is inactive, but all the projects are recorded on the accompanying homepage: i-make.xyz.
I’m still doing small projects when I’m in the mood, but I don’t regularly document them with an entire blog post right now.
I’m an avid listener of podcasts, some of my favorites are: Cortex, flashforwardpod, Ungeniused, ATP and The History of English Podcast.
Musicals are an art form I like very much. But I did not manage to see so many in real life so far. It takes quite a while until they are performed here in Switzerland, and traveling to London to watch one is a bit too much ;-). I consume these primarily through Musical Movies, like “The Greatest Showman” or “Dreamgirls,” or listen to the soundtrack.
A list of the musicals I’ve written about:
This page has seen many iterations. Right now you look at the six version of it. The following blog post: Homepage History (v1-v6) gives some further details.
