I was born in 1972 and I live in France, in Nantes, if I didn't forget to update this page last time I moved :)
I have a computer unrelated job, every hour spent on my box is pure hobby, dedicated to building my personal sites, programming more or less useless stuff, and playing Quake with my clanmates.
I have one wife and two kids, Ariane, Oscar (born in 2002) and Cyrus (born in 2004). I can't wait for my kids to be old enough so we can play some Quake together on the home LAN :) I gave up long time ago playing against my wife, she's a real Quake n00b and never could convince her to train :)
Besides playing the geek on my computer, I listen to some music, mostly AC/DC, Suicidal Tendencies and the like.
Back in 1997, I started to play Quake online, and on the 1st June 1998 I founded the overwellknown and uberleet clan French Frag Factory, who has been playing ever since. Our feared clantag is [SARL], if you are or have been anything near a serious Quake players, chances are you know us. Don't lie.
Over the years, the clan site rapidly became the #1 community site for Quake players in France. I've did amazingly interesting things and met amazingly interesting people while managing this site and this community for all these years. Quake simply ruled my life for about a quarter of it as of writing.
My first online presence, aka planetozh-alpha-0.1, was an ugly page, crippled with enough animated GIF's to overload my 28.8k modem, hosted on Compuserve. It was 1995 at the time !
Version 2 didnâ€™t really existed but was splitted over various places : code pieces were on a static page, then for a while I used a script called Thought Bucket, and my rants and articles were written on my French Quake Community site, which was also my Perl training grounds.
Version 3 was born in May 2004. It was hosted on my Quake community site, and at that time I started to use WordPress and decided to learn some PHP. I ended up writing a few stuff for this blogging platform, including semi-popular plugins. Everything can be found under "My Projects".
In late April 2007 enters Version 4, where you just landed, congratulations :) My personal site now has its own domain name and I'm starting to segregate the personal activities from the community ones.
