More information about the author and this website

WP_20141009_002My dream for a long time was to build a website to be able to impregnate it with my discoveries, inventions, and all the things that involves computers, technology, and hardware stuff. This site is based on these ideals and it aims to provide information to all the people who loves technology and computer science, with an additional care for all the Spanish-speaking people.

I studied Civil Computer Engineering in the Universidad de Talca, Curicó, Chile.

In a bit more personal matters, I can tell you that I really like music from Epica, ACDC, Bob Dylan, Van Halen, Dream Theater, Avalanch, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Xandria, Rhapsody of Fire, Angelzoom, Mozart, Mahler, Vivaldi, Haendel, Satie among many other groups and composers. I love series like SouthPark, Family Guy, Breaking Bad and The Simpsons. I especially remember movies like Equilibrium, Gattaca, Matrix and The Butterfly Effect. Related to books: The secret Solitaire and F2F, by Phillip Finch are my most memorable readings, but the truth is that the books are not my passion.

Feel free to enjoy the contents and articles of my website.
