P&P Blogger Profile: Richard Vanek
Years ago I was active on modem based BBS scene where I enjoy publishing whatever I had in my mind and communicating with people. This blogging is continuation of that. On other hand is for me also very handy as I have kind of log of what, when and how I did. I also wanted to make my web site little more dynamic and share my thought with people.
