When I first got online in mid-1995, the web was still in its early stages of predominately text-based sites. So, later that same year, Studium, which is a rough translation in Latin for hobby, became my experiment at providing to those with similar hobby interests a site that had what I could not find -- informative and well illustrated articles on different leisurely pastimes.

After a decade-and-a-half, the internet has become what it wasn't - with a vengeance. The eye candy of images fills the bandwidth, and far more learned articles than mine are a simple click away. I still like to think that I am providing a source of knowledge and inspiration for the hobby enthusiast.

Although the site has gone through several redesigns (to incorporate what I've learned about web site design), I've attempted to make the changes improvements for my visitors. I hope you feel I've succeeded.
