My name is Arthur Broeders … or Thur, as my family and friends, and all folks in the south of the Netherlands at that, call me.
Trained as an Art Historian at the University of Utrecht, I am working in the IT Industry for the last 25 years.


In my spare time I am pottering the day away creating sites/WordPress themes for myself, seconding others, designing and building for he/she who asks (nicely), publishing Blogger Templates for the world (nope, stopped doing that).
It is safe to say: I’d love to call myself a Web Worker, though not by profession.


Most content can be filed under ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, mumbo-jumbo, smalltalk, ‘Ook‘ or what-not,
true that is! But hey … !?!
The idea is to look absolutely stunning on a Landscape oriented iPad.
One may ask “So why all those fair long-haired pre-raphaelite maidens as thumbnails?”.
Well, Whatever Works.


See the Typography post for the fontfaces.
The Front Page doesn’t get around as a very useful UI: all them pictures but no clues. True, so there is an All Posts List on the Search page.
I have disabled all discussions on the Lauriergracht No 37, except on this page.
You can reach me on my account too. It’s an easy address, account starts with arthur.broeders.

  1. Thur Broeders

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.

    Ik ben makelaar in koffie, en woon op de Lauriergracht No. 37. Het is mijn gewoonte niet, romans te schrijven, of zulke dingen, en het heeft dan ook lang geduurd, voor ik er toe overging een paar riem papier extra te bestellen, en het werk aan te vangen, dat gij, lieve lezer, zoâven in de hand hebt genomen, en dat ge lezen moet als ge makelaar in koffie zijt, of als ge wat anders zijt. Niet alleen dat ik nooit iets schreef wat naar een roman geleek, maar ik houd er zelfs niet van, iets dergelijks te lezen, omdat ik een man van zaken ben.
