I had my first computer in F.2. Not long after that I started learning HTML, and consequently my first web site, which was about astronomy if I am not mistaken, came out a week later. A few months later I started learning Perl, which is a language mostly used for web programming. I joined my school's computer team the next year.

After that, I was more and more into programming. Following Perl, I learned Pascal at school, and a little bit Python, C/C++, Visual Basic and Java, although without much success. As PHP became more and more popular, I switched from Perl to PHP, which I am still constantly using. I also learned to use graphics software such as Photoshop and CorelDraw, and began creating computer graphics. During the years in secondary school, I once worked for a company as a freelance web designer, and for another company as a graphic designer for a summer job. I also worked on some freelance web programming projects which I got from various sources.

In F.5 I struggled on whether to take computer related subjects in A-level and university. After some thoughts, I decided that computer is not my cup of tea . After all, I am more interested in questioning about the truth of the world than in making use of known truths. I am that kind of person, you know.
