The author, at age 11.

Who is he?

I'm Julian De Backer, est. 1984, hailing from Antwerp, Belgium. "Where's that?" I hear you muttering, in disbelief. Well, it's squeezed in between France, Germany and The Netherlands.

And what is he to you?

In late 2001, I came across a nice website called The Lard Biscuit. Its author, Donald Trull, writes down what's on his mind. He's always fair and never insults a subject. He talks about the pros and the cons before he gives his verdict.

I had never heard of this kind of site before, but delighted I was. You can fill a website with your own reviews.

"How can anyone ever be interested in what one person has to say?" I wondered. The answer lay right in front of me : I, for one, am interested in other people's stories and opinions.

I have always wanted to share my thoughts with a potential worldwide audience. The Lard Biscuit has inspired Julian's Posts.

My notions, my opinions & my points of view are yours to read on this website. You may disagree and when you do, please let me know via e-mail.

Yours truly,

Julian De Backer, 22 August 2002
