Welcome to Ingram Braun's personal homepage!

()

This is the place where I am my own publisher and where I can publish texts and programs about all my areas of interest. I hold a Masters Degree (Magister Artium) with two majors in Prehistoric Archaeology and Physical Anthropology. Under the research menu item I am going to install some scripts related to demography and computer simulation and I maintain an area about the history of parlour games (I have collected a few hundred books on that ranging chronologically from the ancient Orient to the Baroque).

Another issue is programming (Perl, C++, PHP, JavaScript, HTML, XML, XSLT, MySQL, CSS, LaTeΧ). From a technical point of view this site is far over the top for a personal homepage but I aim to keep me up to date with the rapidly developing web technology. If you are interested in the design and technology please head over to the IBML page. As a bibliophile I was disappointed of most standard web layouts.

Furthermore I am a tournament chess player and licensed trainer and arbiter. The corresponding area contains material related to competitive chess in contrast to the more academic habits in the research/parlour-games path.1 The majority of the items collected in the miscellanea section is somehow connected to my main areas of interest but does not meet them exactly.

If you like to keep track of what is going on here there are three choices: subscribe to my feed or follow me via Twitter or Facebook. If you prefer E-mail notifications, I recommend the free feed-to-mail service on Blogtrottr. Please remark that I use my Twitter and Facebook accounts for messages automatically generated with feed updates only! Personally I despise social networking services due to the lack of privacy and the large amount of crap there. In general my webpage is about my interests rather than about myself.

After prolonged hesitation I dare to provide a comment section. But I allow for factual comments only! For insults, spam, conspiracy theories and so on go elsewhere!

If this warning is displayed you have disabled JavaScript, run a script blocker or use an outdated browser that cannot compile the embedded scripts. This setting is good enough to read the texts provided on my page, but a considerable amount of comfort functions (f. i. pull down menu navigation, font resizing, zooming or chess game viewer) will not be at hand. Please note that my domain is advertisement-free. All scripts are functionally important.
