My name is Tadej Persic (or Tadej Peršič) and I am 34 years old (male), born on July 13 1980, and I grew up and still live in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, which is a country located at the center of Europe. I'm an ex student of Architecture, which is a part of the Univerza v Ljubljani (in English this means University of Ljubljana), while currently I am studying at the Information technology college. In general I see myself as a pretty liberal and open-minded person, a critical thinker, rationalist, skeptic and somewhat a pacifist.

Wikimedia[edit]

From all the Wikimedia projects I am most active on this Wikipedia (I've created my account here first and that was on March 11 2005) where I contribute the most; mostly I do minor spelling & grammatical corrections, correct & improve the code and references, I revert articles affected by vandalism etc., and I've created 6 or 7 articles from scratch. And so as of August 18 2014, the number of my edits is 1,394; you can see all my edits on this Contributions page). By the way, you can see how my user page looked back then – before I've rewritten and shortened it – on my Old user page. A bit later I've also created an account on Slovene Wikipedia‎, and as of August 18 2014, the number of my edits is 547, while here is a link to my user page: Uporabnik:Wayfarer. Also in about the same period of time I've registered on Wikinews and wrote "Slovenian alpinist in rescue on Nanga Parbat" and "Slovenian alpinist rescued from Himalayan peak" articles in August 2005. On Wikinews I am the least active and so far I've made only 71 contributions.

I'm interested in just about everything related to basic programming and scripting (VBScript, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Python etc.), I also enjoy customizing and tweaking my operating system. I mainly use Windows XP, but I also know how to use Linux. I like to listen to various genres of music, watch movies and TV series (my favorites are South Park, Dilbert, Futurama, and Simpsons). Of course I also like to browse the World Wide Web (news, science and IT sites), post on Internet forums) and such. Below are also listed links to my various online profiles' home pages, to my blogs, and to my own 3 personal websites.

My userpages[edit]

My profiles[edit]

As first I will mention my personal page[1] on about.me portal which links to various others profile/user pages of mine, then as second there's my professional profile[2] at LinkedIn, and my profile page[3] on Scribd with various seminar papers from my 2 year study of Informatics. There's also my personal page and blog on Posterous which will hopefully get more content in the near future (see the update below under "Current blogs").

Social networking[edit]

Then there are of course my many accounts' pages on various Social networking internet portals such as for example my profile page[4] on Twitter which is also some sort of a blog (this is called micro-blogging), then there's my profile page[5] on Facebook community, my personal page[6] on MySpace portal, and my user page[7] on Fubar portal. For many other such account pages rather see my-accounts.html page[8] on my main personal website (also see below).

Wiki-type sites[edit]

And finally there are user pages on Wiki-type websites. I will start with my user page[9] on slovenian variant of Wikipedia, and then there are also my user page[10] on Wikimedia, and finally my user page[11] on Wikinews. Of course there are other Wiki-type websites where I am a registered member and on which I mainly use a nick "Satyr-wayfarer" (that's because my nick on Lost In The Box, MozillaZine, and CastleCops forums is "satyr", while on all the original Wikis it's "Wayfarer"), the user pages below are ordered by the date of registration. As first there is my user page[12] on SourceWatch website, then there is my user page[13] on CastleCops Wiki, then my user page[14] on Mozilla Wiki, my user page[15] on Mozdev, my user page[16] on MozillaZine Knowledge Base, and finally my user page[17] on bb4win Wiki (bb4win is a branch of Blackbox shell replacement for Windows), and my user page[18] on Ghisler Wiki (it's a Wiki for Total Commander file-manager).

My blogs[edit]

The layout with 3 tables is a temporary solution until I find a better way to lay them out. I had many problems with lay-out; I was planning to have my picture on the left and some intro paragraph on the right side (both cells in a single row in a left-floated table), but when I finally made it to look ok in full-screen it was wrong in non full-screen view.

This user uses "logical quotation marks". Internal punctuation leads to factual errors. It's not a style issue!

Current blogs[edit]

Recently my main blog in English is my blog[19] on Google's Blogger platform since the previous one[20] (which contained quite a few posts already) was on Posterous, which was acquired by Twitter early in 2013 and closed. Though I also have a blog[21] in Slovene language, which is a new blog on WordPress that contains imported content (from October 2006 onward) from my blog[22] on Sopca, and which was more or less abandoned for a long time (especially after 2009), though on my birthday in 2012 I created a new entry after almost 2 years, and from then on I've posted quite a few new entries (the last one on December 2013), so it's not quite dead already.

Abandoned blogs[edit]

Then there was also a second and now abandoned blog[23] on VOLJAblok, which was actually my first blog ever. But unfortunately it is not accessible anymore since the blog-portal itself was taken off-line (however there's a page[24] on Internet Archive listing all the archived states of this blog; the January 29 2007 archive[25] being the last archived state, and the oldest one being April 23 2006 archive[26] archive), and there are a bunch of blogs in English language, e.g. my blog[27] on Senserely Yours, my diary[28] on kuro5hin portal, my blog[29] on Spread Firefox community portal etc., which are all, as you can see, more or less community-oriented blogs. I guess my user page[30] on Technorati also suits into this section since it lists all my blogs (well, at least those that I've submitted there).

My websites[edit]

Types of websites[edit]

I also have a general personal website[31] (meaning that it's not strictly computing, nor strictly non-computing related), and there exist also a Slovene variant of this same website[32]. It is basically just a navigational website that just briefly describes and lists links to my other websites and blogs. My oldest website though is my main computing related website[33] that deals with important computing-related things that I've discovered so far, e.g. my various personal computing-related articles, hints, principles, rules, tips, while it also contains links to my favorite programs and describes their usages etc.

Interesting stuff[edit]

But especially interesting are my numerous discoveries and descriptions of various of experiences. Note that the website contains also a some sort of a blog (in other words an ever-growing set of pages with important news and events) started in 2005, with first entry being on events1.html page[34], and the last/current one being on events16.html page[35]. Finally there is my third website, which is a clarinet instrument related website[36], which as its title hints contains mostly technical and history information about the clarinet musical instrument, and a few of my personal experiences with it.

Main principles[edit]

The emphasis in case of all the three websites is not on website's outlook but on the websites' content (by the way, all the code was written and is maintained strictly by me, mostly "typed-by-hands" with a bit of copy/paste in a few cases of JavaSript), therefore I only use HTML/JavaScript and a bit of CSS since I've tried to make it as simple and fast-loading as possible. Also, all of them are more or less crafted by hand (i.e. none was made with the use of pre-built templates or even worse, written with WYSIWYG or other such "make-your-webpage-in-5-minutes" type of program), and all are licensed under a Creative Commons license. You may notice that on all of my websites I don't use underlying for "normal" words (i.e. not links) to prevent the confusion and to follow the standards. Like almost every other website on the Internet, thy one is also always under construction. And finally, they also don't contain pop-ups or banner-ads, and are XHTML and CSS code is valid by W3C standards.

The Messages[edit]

This is a place for any important messages that you may want to send me; although I highly recommend you to rather use my talk page...
