This is the official site of Andrei Olaru, the owner of andreiolaru.ro and andreiolaru.net. In other words, this is where I put the stuff like I do, like, for instance, my photographs.

In its ideal form, this site should hold all the content that I have ever generated and I want others to see. Poems, drawings, designs, code, reflections. However, it is still far from that, and the content that is presented right now is just a small part of what I have stored on electronic and physical media.

I have always insisted on writing the code for the site myself. It's a hobby. When i have the time, I add features or tweak the appearance.

Progress on content and code/features is unpredictable. It greatly depends on the time that I have, on the ideas that I have, and on other priorities.

But my site has always been close to my heart, and I hope I will never stop updating, no matter how rarely.


History (en-only):

The history of this site begins with the old wackyr.{go,as,lx}.ro, which had a black background and a big sort of eye on the home page. Maybe someday I'll try to make it work again and put it online. It used only HTML and I wrote all the links to photos by hand - I had few photos online. Later I made a PHP browser for that.

The next phase was andreiolaru.lx.ro. White background this time, and written in PHP. It was based on a directory structure for the content, which was read by the code - no databases.

At some point the andreiolaru.ro domain was acquired, then andreiolaru.net.Branding was improved by creating the AO logo.

The 3.0 version of this site was a great change: modular code and an improved, very generic, structure of the database.

Right now the site uses PHP and some (very little) JavaScript. It relies heavily on CSS.
