waiting is nearly over

while i hackle and tackle the new® virtual home and some other stuff: some live shots of a grrreat berlin based gang.

until then …

… you have to go somewhere else. i will re-launch this here for the “x” time. like pushing the reset button. maybe tomorrow. maybe on friday. maybe next week. definitely this month. just to be all new in may. plus some new projects.

over and out.

Not in my name (spam)

Today at 10.10 it started. I received hundreds of “Delivery Failure” e-mails. I talked to my hoster and he told me about: Continue reading ‘Not in my name (spam)’

alive! alive? alive!

yes, i’m alive. worked hard. did a wedding “corporate” design (early examples at f.), some (re-)design (champions-world), some blog design (katharina suckale, online very soon), a printed portfolio for sk74, consulting and preparation for a big re-design (secret). and still doing the planning for my own biggest projects: one w/ words and one w/ images – but it’s a long way to go; numbers? around 200 and around 2500. curious? harhar!

besides the virtual world i did some woodwork: new desktop construction/extension and a monitor+macmini stand … photos: later.

footnote: ben, our time is august.

still under construction

code under progressYep. Time is ticking. Ticking really fast. Site design not ready for prime time. Not even close. Too many missing bullet points. Missed GTD. Don’t wanna do a nightshift again. Not this night. Busy day tomorrow. Remember? re:publica. Conference ’bout web2.0, open source and social media in berlin, germany.

But I created an icon for «Code Under Contruction». You wanna get it? Download it? Here you go:

New! Relaunch myself + updates!

Yeehaa! This site changed the style today – because I can. If something is not right aligned or behaves like a donkey I’ll say sorry. Maybe I gonna fix the bugs (or not).

  • New (static) text blurps. Better, shorter, straighter. Thanks to: jmi, cat and tania.
  • Sadly sorry: The static pages (About, Service, Showroom) and their subpages are now only in german until I’ll get someone who can translate the new text pieces. Ben? Are you listening? I can’t offer money BUT in exchange for a good translation I could offer some design work or help w/ blog setup or css/theme makeover. Or mac support. Or good music tips. Or a delicious dinner.
  • New pages like Kulturprogramm will give you updates what I read, listen to and watch on dvd or at the movies.
  • My Toolbox will be relaunched very soon. Same with the FAQs.
  • Starting over the Showroom (replaces the portfolio); more updates very soon.
  • Two little (secret) projects will be presented very soon. I’m still working on them so I have to shut up for now. But two words to keep you checking my site frequently: artist and writings.

Other updates:

  • Tomorrow starts the re:publica, a german conference about blogging, web-two-oh, open source and other nerdy stuff; I’ll be there.
  • It seems there will be no aKua theme for K2. Why? Well, no real progress on the K2 develepment front, still stuck before a final 1.0 version. But, someone did a really great theme. 100% mac-like, unbeatable, ajaxified, widgetized, drag’n’dropable, leading “i”: iTheme 1.0 by Nick La.
  • I’m still looking for someone w/ very good PHP, ajax and WordPress skills who is interested in developing one or more themes for WordPress w/ me.

I will reboot

You don’t know MacZOT?

You don’t know SubEthaEdit?

Time for a change!

There is a special deal today: Each qualified blog entry reduces the price of SubEthaEdit from CodingMonkeys from $30.00 to $0.00 by $0.05 per entry. This is the second special event and it’s called BLOGZOT 2.0 on MacZOT.com. MacZOT and TheCodingMonkeys will award $105,000 in Mac software while I’m writing about it. And by the way: it’s a very good Application. For coders with the need to do collaborative writing/coding. For writing on the same file eg. via internet or local network. It works. Promise. End of story.

Now go get it!

fine piece of work

not my words — but I was pretty happy to hear (well, read) that. Weeks ago I joined a contest for the upcoming 2nd release of Yasu to create an icon.

Now my icon did the 2nd place but won the contest. To read more about how this could happen at Jim Mitchells site. Thank you Jim!

writely to google, next in line …

Thumbstacks.com! is Powerpoint or Keynote for the web. build presentations online and share them via the net. but don’t forget: it’s still an alpha-version. don’t cry if something breaks. i’ll test it in-deep the next days … and maybe report back.
