Claudio's Home Page

Welcome to my home page.

You'll find some tips about energy saving (related to Computer, Hi-Fi and other stuff) and some basics about home cinema on this website. I've also added a few links to some other websites, that might be of some value for you.

And here are some pictures taken on a vacation trip to Mauritius in September 1997: A selection of my vacation pictures of Mauritius. I even managed to put another selection of my vacation pictures on the web after all these years: More pictures of Mauritius. I've visited this country again in October 2000 and I did not regret it at all (I'll add some new vacation pictures later).

Home Cinema

My newly added page covers some facts and figures about large projection TVs. Useful if you're planning to set up your own home cinema system. Ever heard of Video CDs? They're cheap, reliable, can be played back on almost every computer and in most of the today's available DVD players. And they don't take up a lot of storage requirements. VCDs don't fade over time and do look better than VHS tapes (with better sound as well). If you're interested in more, click onto my new VCD link.
