This is my small homepage where you might find (hopefully) many interesting things, as a result of boring afternoons, sleepless nights or anything in between. This includes programs, writings, audio clips, links to other sites and other interesting material.
Since I do not wish to ruin the quality of the site (quantity does not mean quality!), frequent updates are not guaranteed. But, rest assured, as soon as I deem something worthy, I will post it here.
Everything I post will work with screen readers. In fact, if you are blind or visually impaired, give NVDA a try! It’s free and open source and if I had to summarize its capabilities in one word: rocks (Windows only).
Feel free to browse using the links above and, most importantly, have fun!
Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
I’m really tempted to not include this section as I always find it challenging to describe who I am. Nonetheless, here it is:
I’m known in the cyberworld as Erion or Flameborn, formerly Robjoy, on muds and other MP games Thorwald (and others, if that name is taken).
I try to be as creative as possible, which hopefully shows in the activities I like doing in my free time, including enjoying nature, writing, programming, reading a massive amount of books, hanging out with friends, listening to and composing music (non electronic by all means) and many, many more.
I believe everyone should learn to play at least one instrument in their life, thus, I started out with the piano, but lost interest shortly after.
I picked up a Ukulele in 2011 and we still enjoy each other’s company, proud to say, without quarrels! My instrument list grew shortly after with a guitalele; in 2016 I acquireda low whistle and an Irish flute in 2017.
Since then, I have been doing accessibility-related work, worked on natural language processing and AI, and recently switched to a different creative outlet. Currently, I do mostly freelance work as a composer, writing various scores for TV, radio, games, even background music for audio books and for relaxation.
This is just a glimpse really, but the keywords here are spontaneity and uniqueness.
if you have a spark of an idea, a thought or two, or you would like to comission me, drop me a line via one of the available contact methods; I always enjoy good conversation.

If you like what you see on this site, or you’d like to motivate me to continue producing music, software or stories, or you’d simply like to support me in any way, please donate.
This is, of course, entirely optional and is up to your generosity, but it is greatly appreciated.
What I can promise, if you donate, is that I certainly will not waste any donated money on burgers or beer (not that they are not worth your money!). Seriously speaking, if you choose to donate, your donations will be used to improve the site, allow me to purchase additional software or hardware, and, of course, greatly motivate me because I’ll know that there are people out there who are interested in, or wish to support, what I am doing. Thank you very much in advance!
People who rock
No, this is not about Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley or Freddie Mercury, but rather about the people who help me in every way they can. Yes, you! Thanks, folks. (In a book, this would be the acknowledgments section.)
- Parham, the one who is always there. You’ve done far too much to list here.
- The Random Party: Ghorthalon, Pitermach and Bryan. Random ideas, random TT chats, random jokes (‘I’m bat’, aka ‘I’m back’). My random huge thanks!
- The new and returning party members: Zack, Jeff, Henrik, Tyler, Aaron, Ben
- And you, who is browsing this site and using things you find right now. I hope I don’t bore you to death.
If you feel I left you out, I didn’t. But sadly I cannot include everyone (otherwise we would start from the air itself). And some people are obvious to mention. They know who they are.
