In the street with my laptop

About this site.

Concernant ce site (version française de cette page) Über diese Website (deutsche Version dieser Seite)

This site is the personal homepage of a teach-it-yourself programmer, living as homeless in the street in Luxembourg, Western Europe. In fact, there are two different sites, grouped under one same domain. The reason, why I chose the domain name streetinfo, is because 1. the site and all its content is created in the street and 2. the site contains INFOrmatics related stuff (programs, web applications and computer tutorials), as well as INFOrmation (about the homeless life in my country).

Free Pascal programming: Memory game application   Computing and programming.
Beside general computer related information (computer knowledge articles, tutorials, tips and tricks), the site contains the source code, that I wrote and am writing during these last years, in particular applications developed with Lazarus/Free Pascal and online applications, mostly created with Perl-CGI (some are written in PHP or Javascript) and, if there is a database involved, MySQL. All my programs are open source; the executables (for MS Windows 64bit) of all my desktop and console applications may be downloaded free of charge. All online applications are free to use; for some of them, the source code is also available. Among them, there are two huge projects: AnimalDB ("Tiere-Datenbank", my personal animal database; in German) and a Luxembourgish course (project actually abandoned and removed from the site; in French). Most of the Windows and web applications are in English, but for some of them, the user interface and/or data are in German, French, or Luxembourgish. Important to remember, that all on this site is distributed "as is", that is without any warranty of any kind! You also find some mathematics and science (other than computing) tutorials on this site: They may be viewed in the "Mathematics and Science" section.

Biology computing: Proteins comparison script   Biology computing and bioinformatics.
This project, that I started in 2016, pausing it after (for the 4th time) my laptop was stolen by those people, from whom our social services tell us, how important it would be, to be there for them, may be seen as a part of the computing site, or, because of its size and its specialized content, as a 3rd site at the streetinfo.lu domain. The idea was to write a series of articles, explaining the fundamentals of classical, molecular and population genetics, mathematical biology and bioinformatics, as well as to create a library of Perl modules, programs and example data, that may be used to resolve biology related problems. All documentation (biology background and program description), as well as the scripts themselves are in English. Not always being easy to do informatics, when living in the street and lots to do with my Windows and web applications, it is uncertain, if I ever get the time to review the articles and the code and get ready to start publishing the project.

Homeless life in Luxembourg: My human dignity article   Street life in Luxembourg.
Nothing to do with computing, but lots with me and my life. My "SDF" site contains articles and little stories, written during my homeless situation, in particular texts, dealing with my fight for respect and human dignity, the actual situation in the social centers (where the guys from here not only loose more and more all these basic services, that were for us before, but also have less and less possibility to go there, without being forced to endure noise and bugging, without having to fear for their stuff and even for their bones) and my lived experiences with the so-called "normal people" and our modern society. The social site is in French, some of my articles being in Luxembourgish, German or English. An idea in mind is to give homeless people the opportunity to use the site, in order to tell their own life-story and their own experiences with our social services. Uncertain project for the future...
