RetroChallenge 2019/10
October 1, 2019 (Tuesday)
October 2019. It's already time for another RetroChallenge!

Lately and this month in particular, I've been and will be very busy... While this did not stop me from working on a few retro gaming and computing projects, I have not taken the time to finish them and document everything on my website as I usually do... So! That's exactly what I hope to acheive this month: Finish, document and publish a few projects.

About me

Hello, I'm Raphaël Assénat. I live near Montreal, a city located in Quebec province, Canada. I have two big passions in life: Computers and Electronics. Those two disciplines allows me to quench my desire to create things, my curiosity, and my desire to learn. I'm always working on many projects at the same time and I do not have enough time to do all the projects I'd like. But fortunately, once I begin working on a project, I rarely stop before it's finished.

Programming is my main hobby, and I doing it in C and assembly. Preferably on Linux or Unix platforms. I'm not interested at all by windows programming. What I like the most is when I have the chance to work on projects involving both programming and electronics. For instance, writing software to drive external circuitry designed by me, or even better, programming microcontrollers.

Other than computing and programming, I like to read, play piano and relax by playing RPG video games. (And thus many projects on this site are related to video games...)

Why this site?

  1. For sharing my knowledge with others.
  2. To have a presence on the net (Hey! I got my job thanks to this website).
  3. Being a geek, the idea of creating a personal website seemed to make sense.
  4. For fun!
