This is the personal home page of Albert van der Horst.

I was born in 1948. I am slim, a reasonable piano player, a slightly more than reasonable organ player, a good swimmer, an fanatic dancer, a second kyu aikidoka, a dan grade programmer in quite a few languages, (winner in the Obfuscated C Contest in 1992) and I have this Miami Vice poney tail. I have degrees in mathematics, electronics and theoretical physics. (If you do not know about martial arts: second kyu is blue belt, a dan grade means black belt)
Well these personal things are not too interesting. Let me try to tell you a few things you may be interested and in and maybe not know.
