My NEWS page:
In the 80's and early 90's I managed my own and a couple
of business "Bulletin Board Systems" but simply
lost touch with the "new" WWW later on. I
always remained curious about the WWW though and planned
to set up my private homepage, however business and
private life asked for other priorities...
online again, more out of curiosity than for any other
reason but who knows...
Some friends of mine discovered
recently that I am much more into music than they imagined
and suggested to put my music online. Well, we're gonna
Hard to believe but I didn't make much progress over
the last year and a half - although I tried. I updated
a couple of pictures and added information about some
new instruments in the meantime, but that's it.
My original plan to release my own music online asap
is still pending because I still don't have a clue how
to do it...
Perhaps I need to replace my old "free"
webeditor with a new commercial one....
Okay, I'll save the money. Finally my first songs are
online. As usual it was not a problem with the software
but with the person sitting in front of the monitor...
During a conversation with our
IT manager I suddenly realized my mistake... - thanks
Thorsten to open my eyes with your funny remarks...
A new song is available online and also a guestbook
is now integrated. My visitor counter is already running
since April 2005.
I deleted my old useless online calendar and implemented
a little photo album instead.
Implemented some HiRes pictures. If you move your mouse
over the normal pictures, you will notice that it changes
into a "hand". To see the new HiRes pictures
just press the left mouse button. To get back to the
page simply click the "back" button of your
Added some new instruments and pieces of equipment,
updated some pages and added more photos.
Added my 'monthly' Top10 list of Music DVDs. My collection
includes now more than 250 Music DVDs and it is getting
harder and harder to decide what concert to watch next...
Again some new pictures, some new instruments and some
2 PM - my Dad left this world...
I am empty of words, feelings, life... - disorientaded...
Today, a few minutes past 2 PM my father passed away
during an emergency surgery. He was run down on his
bicycle by a lorry around 10 AM and fought for his life
until then - until nothing was left to fight for..
My only guidepost - except God - has left this world.
I feel hollow...
Mein beloved father,
my thoughts and feelings
will always be with
and I am infinitely proud to be your son.
My homepage is finally bilingual. It was a long lasting
project but now it is done. I translated all of my current
German homepage into English. There are still plenty
of typos, grammar and style mistakes "built in"
but please don't keep them and let me know, too.
I will surely spend more time to revise and refine the
English pages but with your help it's going to happen
I finally spent some time again on my homepage. Updated
several sections, added my new guitars and equipment
to the Music section and also updated my photo almbum.
I have to admit that I neglected the English section
of my homepage all of last year. Now I finally took
the time to integrate all the updates from last year
into the English section.
Hope you like it...
I'm back as a pilot! Today my JAR-FCL (PPL-A) private
license was issued and I am now entitled to
fly without a flight instructor and with passengers
again. An advice to all those who believe that age is
an issue: I was by far the oldest student in our flying
club and the first to get his license. Questions?!
