Testers of the world, unite and wander around!


The inevitable details about [ emps ]

Who is Here?

The wanderer is Philippe Wittenbergh, image poet, wanderer, (web) designer, image creator. He is currently living in the eastern part of the world, timezones ahead of most people, surrounded by a decrepit tea field, a cat, a partner and some more.

More details might show up one day. Did I mention he loves Jazz, avant-garde music and books? Fine wine and some beers should not be forgotten.

Some claims to fame: [ Images ] – poetic introspections. A book has been written, but not published. When otherwise not busy, he also contributes to a number of open-source projects (such as the now defunct Camino browser and Textpattern – a CMS). And on some past, more pervert days, he maintained the IE Mac bugs and oddities pages (this resource has been deleted with status 410).
