What - History
Well it all started in summer 2001 when I decided to try to get some order in my music collection.
Having just finished my 1st year of computer
science, thus being able to
program in Oberon, I decided to write a program which would help me
organize my music collection.
The result was DOMO aka Dirks Oberon Music Organizer!
For those interested, the old version can be found here: OberonDomo.zip
But as time passes needs & requirements change...having learnt
C++ I decided it was time for a new version
(who writes software in Oberon anyway :p), and thats what this site is
Before reading on I suggest you take a look at the why page.
