Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will enjoy it and find the information useful and practical.
There are several interesting stories, fascinating pictures and riddles. I have put together some useful software of which most are free.
Ever since I remember I have always been interested in mechanics and how they work. It all started when I was happy (conquer) to disassemble my child-proof playpen within minutes and as a side effect the sides fell apart I had a close encounter with the hot iron stove.
As I was growing up, disassembling turned into building and creating and soon I started to fix broken clocks. In high school I fixed the broken down typewriters and slide projectors. I was fascinated by the world of locks; at school I was happy to decode the forgotten combination of locks, sometimes just for my own pleasure. -:)
Thanks to my parents I often went on excursions so I grew to love the outdoors. I was thrilled by the airplanes flying above me. After returning home I made several kites and toy-planes, some with engines and remote controls.
The first time I was in a cave was when I was less than 3 years old. When I was a teen my friends and I organised cave explorations. We spent most of our time in the north-eastern part of Hungary (Bükk and Aggteleki karst). We even found a few undiscovered caves in the Alps. Once we found a scull of a bear from the prehistoric age.
In Vass Imre cave near Jósvafő we continued the scientific research of our parents and we developed new methods, e.g. how to measure air pressure in caves. In the teamwork my task was to manage the technical challenges. Since we frequently spent several days underground we got to know each other thoroughly and have remained closed friend from then on.
It is not surprising that I became a "precision instrument manufacturer and maintenance technician". I first dealt with computers in clean room of Central Research Institute (KFKI) rented by KÜRT Co. I had to repair the mechanics of hard disk drives. For that is had to be innovative and develop new methods and devices.
Later I maintained computers and networks; my favourite area being how to protect systems from computer viruses.
After some years I worked for industrial companies, banks to help them secure their IT systems. To this day I work in this field.

In the meantime, I hadn't forgotten about flying, I learned how to paraglide then at a company event I flew in a glider (Góbé) and as a result I became a dedicated pilot. My glider club: MAV
