home.gifWelcome to aldweb Site

Welcome on my Web site.

I have named this site "the Web Site of ald", where ald stands for "Above the Limits of the Desert". Indeed, if you have reached this site, it means that you have been surfing a lot on the Internet ! Therefore, to reward you for this long search, I have put a nice sandy site theme just for you.

15 years later... - by aldweb 22/04/2024 @ 14:44

It's been years since I last published anything on my website. And yet, how many things have happened over the past 15 years!
I continued to be passionate about pocket computers from the 80s as well as about Palms from the 90s, now also in enthusiast collections, I built and developed lots of IoT gadgets (air quality boxes, radiation counters...), and many other projects.

But time has taken its toll and some of my virtual friends left too soon. I would like to pay them a modest tribute here.

Christophe Le Glatin died on July 15, 2022 at the age of 55.
Christophe contacted me in 2000, by e-mail. A trace of his work has been visible for many years on my site, on the page of The hidden side of the Sharp PC-1211 which he had kindly authorized me to place on my site so as not to lose the reference. Another article by Christophe can be found on the website, L'ordinateur de poche Casio PB-700.

Jean Millet died on February 5, 2023 at the age of 76.
Jean was the most active member of the freeGuppY project that I initiated here in 2002. Jean was the president of the association freeGuppY from June 2007 until his death. For almost 20 years, Jean carried the torch of my project on which I had only spent 2 years, ensuring it a very long life.

The aldweb site is 10 years old!!!

  • On February 11th, 2009, my web site had been online for 10 years. cool.
    Lack of free time did not allow me to refresh it a little bit before today, but the day has come to celebrate these 10 years.
  • First visible effect of this event is that I finally took the time to migrate my web site to the latest version of the GuppY web portal which, let's remember..., was born here January 1st, 2003 but was named miniPortail at the time, and I have put a brand new site skin (thanks to Papinou for his huge help in providing me this relooking).
  • As a consequence, I invite you to answer to the new poll to tell me what you think of it, the previous poll (the 6th one) having given a nice and friendly result.
  • Would you like to see how my web site evolved over these 10 years, then give a look to the Old stories page.
  • I also updated the yearly visits statistics and I am very happy to know that almost 1300 people come to my web site every day.

izibasic.gifUpdates as of July 30th, 2009 - by aldweb 30/07/2009 @ 21:10

  • During the last 2 years, we could see Apple's iPhone climb on top of the smartphone economy, we could also see some first Google Android smartphones get on the market, while Microsoft tried to keep up with their whatever they call it mobile OS... and Palm declining day after day!
    However, after almost 2 years without an update (but I was keeping on coding on my Palm Tungsten C), I put on line a new major version of iziBasic, as well as a new versions of ViziBasic and NekoCat, which benefit from the number of enhancements that were developed in iziBasic.
