A warm welcome

done..." would probably be the answer for many
weeks, months or even years to come and I'm not only
talking about Microsoft programmers here...
homepage is close to final since end of 2006 but I am
still updating and "improving" it every now
and then - mostly because it's quite some fun to service
your own homepage... ;o))
Unfortunately my website is no longer fully compatible
with the new generation of web browsers. No problems
with Internet Explorer up to version 7. The new IE8
however requires to use the compatibility view from
the "Extras" tab to display my homepage properly.
Unfortunately Mozilla's Firefox does not provide such
an option so the layout is somewhat distorted when using
Firefox. Apologies for this inconvenience.
This homepage is online since mid 2003. I created
this web presence out of curiosity in summer 2003 -
mostly because my broadband provider offered the hosting
service for free.
Doing so I learned two facts
quickly: it is much easier today than in the glorious
old days of computers to make things work; however it
is still as difficult and tiresome to achieve exactly
the results you have in mind.
My first idea to
make my own music available for downloading was not
realisable in the beginning - I have to admit that it
was not a software problem but rather my own lack of
The next step forward was in March
2005... - a chat with our company's IT-Manager about
a completely different subject opened my eyes and I
finally managed to put my songs online.
Since then my homepage underwent several modifications;
new topics were implemented - as for example my photo
album - new hobbies, pictures and updates on my gear
were integrated and also my personal info was updated
from time to time.
Some Highlights of the past years:
- Peter Autschbach's remarks on my interpretation
of one of his songs in my guest book (Peter is an
internationally acclaimed German Jazz-Guitarist)
- Many old friends were able to get in touch with
me again... - and I am really grateful about each
'new' old contact! :-)
- In November 2005 one of my songs was chosen
as background music for another homepage for the
first time. In the meantime I gave permission to
three websites to use my music.
- My songs were already downloaded more than 18,000
times (as of Julyl 2013) and the feedback is surprisingly
positive, if there is any... :-))
- The visitor count is still growing permanently
and much to my surprise the English section of my
homepage is now getting more visitors than the German
one. Wished I knew, where all you guys are from...
Like in most other "households" there is
always something to 'clean' up or to fix with my homepage...
- thus this website will remain "work in progress"...
I'd be pleased if you left a short note in my guest
book (Don't be shy, please!) or if you are interested
to learn more, please feel free to send me an email
