Welcome / [qotd filename=”greetings.dat”]!

You have reached Bogdan’s Webspace, a place where I try to leave a tiny mark on the face of the Internet.

Hope you find something you like and enjoy among my scribblings and mumblings.

At least since you came this far to reach my page I will delight you every day with a new “quote of the day”. Check back regularly for quotes, news and little stories related to my existence and hobbies.

All the best wishes,

The Quote of the Day:

[qotd filename="fortunes.dat" persistence="day"]

If you are like me, than you would like to “space out” and read more quotes for several minutes or hours without end, you can do that following this link.


If it can be programmed, I will program it!
If it can be described, I can implement it!
If it can be imagined, we will have it!
Only time will want to stop us…
But, even time can be conquered!
So, we have to dream!
Bogdan G.
