The idea of having the biographical stuff (i.e. my own face) be the very first thing on the site felt somehow banal.
I was therefore forced to put in a usability-decreasing

The logo is randomly chosen out of N more or less different L-systems and IFS fractals.

Have you ever wanted to know the color of magic?

gcolor figure it out for you.
gcolor is a scientific™ method for converting an arbitrary string to a color.
Handy both for getting definitions of
real colors, as well as determining the colors of abstract concepts.

average color out of all the returned thumbnail images.
mcmap is a Minecraft automap that works by proxying the connection between the Minecraft client and server, and extracting the world information from the traffic.
I wrote the initial version in late 2010; other people have worked on it, too.
Caveat: it might not always be very speedily updated to be compatible with the latest Minecraft versions.
mcmap has a GitHub repository.
