Calmira About Us|
About Brian Johnson,
former owner of Calmira Online!
Outside of work, the Net, and Calmira, I don't have much of a life. That's OK, tho. I have fun online. :)
About Erwin Dokter, Development coordinator
As your humble 'Development coordinator', I hope to incorporate the best features from various developers into the main release of Calmira, keeping in mind that even a 386 must be able to run it, and yet providing a few option for those running 'high end' machines as well...
I am relatively new to Delphi, but I learn something every day, and I am not afraid to ask for help when it comes to really technical problems. I can only hope I can do a good job!
About Mike Graenz, FAQ maintainer
My first contact with a computer was in 1993, when my father bought a 386 box for my mother. This computer was awesome (at this time) ;) At the age of 11 (we had the computer for one year then), I coded my first programs in QBasic, it was cool cause my friends did so, too, and so we shared our information and programs. Five years later I started to learn HTML, at this time the 386 box was mine and my father bought a new one, a 233Mhz machine. I started my first website that was hosted by a very good friend who offered me the webspace - the content was about a programmable CASIO calculator.
After a while I changed the content to Calmira, and later to CalPaint, the address was calpaint.de.vu then. In 2002, Gaby offered me the possibility to host my site, I agreed and rewrote the whole site.
After www.calpaint.de was born I had the idea to create a community site for Calmira users, but I had no clue how to realise this, so I started to learn PHP. After a while I was good enough to set up www.calunity.net.ms.
About Gaby Chaudry, our generous host
Then it began to grow and grow and grow.... So I upgraded the contract with my ISP to a "high performance package", which gave me the possibility to offer webspace and domains to others as well. So, when I heard that calmira.org is down, I didn't hesitate and offered my help.
Of course, I'm working with WfWG 3.11 and Calmira. I even can't remember how it was without Calmira :-) My machine is a 486-33, therefore DOS/Win 3.11 is the best choice in Operating Systems for it (apart from CP/M-86 ;-)) - and Calmira the best shell!
