Behold the interweb home of Mischa Poslawsky aka Shiar. It contains information on my (software) projects such as Wormy, a section about TI-8x calculators including over 200 game reviews, and pages on anything else that might interest me.
I intend to live forever... so far, so good
How come you're still here?
In an effort to unify my various tlds, the primary location of this site will henceforth be at shiar.nl. Seems like a decent choice, as I'm sufficiently proud to be from the Netherlands. The other options are either debatable (.net: does hosting multiple sites make me a network provider?), misleading (.com to denote internationality?), or a complete stretch (.org for non-profit, but without the organization?).
To celebrate, I've redesigned my logo. While it's certainly much less shiny and 3-D, I think it's more suitable for me to have something written (custom SVG) than drawn (using some third-party font no less). And no, the resemblance to my written signature is not accidental (just unfortunate my nick requires a diagonal line :/).
After about six years of inactivity, I finally resurrected my site. As pages became more and more outdated, the work required to update everything to a semi-relevant state grew to the point where it's easier to just leave it clearly deprecated.
But at last I managed to bring it back to a presentable state. The styling and HTML have been updated, and all code rewritten (which besides being maintainable and PHP-less, now features translations and clean urls). Most obsolete contents have been removed or revised (useful information should still be there though). While I'm not planning on posting as frequently as I used to, I do hope to keep it somewhat current.
You wouldn't believe it if you weren't reading this, but I'm actually
updating my page! :) Not that I've got anything noteworthy to say
(oh, just that my site got over 100,000 visitors, w00t),
but a lot of people were wondering where I went. Well, mostly I'm just
preoccupied with my job at the moment. The only update is that I just
made my guestbook a little more spam-resistant (recently it's
being flooded by spam, bleurgh).
But soon I think I may have some
calculator-related updates for you as well (even though I officially retired).
Check back soon ;)
Finally got a computer-related job :). At Media Design, where I'm currently working on Cu2, a site which most dutch people may have heard of ^_^. Anyways, since I'm now working on websites fulltime, the fun of updating my own site is mostly gone. I'll try though: Little update to the about me page, and I believe I never mentioned my StarCraft page before, which contains some useful info about the game.
