Chantier 2.1

Maybe not the most SEO friendly title but, well, who cares. Chantier just sounds better than construction site. But I do like the sound of scaffolding, which alas, isn’t really necessary for a construction site on the web – which this blog still is and, now, finally, the reason for this entry, will remain for […]

Happy New Year!

It’s a tad bit late, and I do know it. Don’t be too concerned with my timing though (well, at least not because of my posting this picture), I’m simply setting up my flickr moblog again, after yet another switch of my blogging software. While I did like Expression Engine a lot, I’ve mostly worked […]

Welcome to Expression Engine Core!

While, for the time being, “almost a diary” will remain a construction site, it is time to lift some of the scaffolding… alright, it looks almost exactly like it did two minutes ago when you were still redirected to the old domain, but under the hood, things have changed considerably. This blog is now powered […]

Switching Hosts

Ok, I am now officially in the process of moving all my web based data to another host (and probably another CMS, Expression Engine). Expect more posts as soon as that transition is complete (and as soon as I have been able to finish the overdue AFOE relaunch)

Keine Jungs in der Peepshow.

Nein, hier geht es nicht Lyssas peepshow. Hier könnt ihr mich höchstpersönlich peepen – bei 25peeps – sobald der Link funktioniert. Wer mich da sehen will, sollte sich am besten beeilen, denn Robert Basic hat natürlich recht – über kurz oder lang wird die 25 peeps “Hall of Fame” ein ein digitale Briefmarkensammlung weiblicher Schönheit […]

Summertime.

Just as Doug mentioned over on afoe, and as you might be experienceing yourselves, my gentle readers – it’s summertime. And summertime means that most Europeans enjoy the easy livin’, particularly during August, when entire countries seem to relocate to the sea. Unfortunately, the Air France flight that crash landed in Toronto a couple of […]

Saving Toby?

I’m at loss for words. Those of you, my gentle readers, who know me, will be able to certify that being in that state is a rather unnatural condition for me. However, I just found out about a website called savetoby.com. Being a Toby myself, I felt the need to inquire what was going on […]

Moving (towards 2005)

As this year is slowly approaching its final hours, you should be grateful that I have decided to spare you yet another “bottom line of 2004″ post. Not that there would be much to sum up with respect to “almost a diary” anyway. But I wanted to tell you that at some point in the […]

Summer In The City.

It was about time to pull out those summer clothes again… I know I’ve been neglecting this blog a little (and as it happens, I have neglected afoe a little, too, lately), so thanks to those who still stick around.

My two cents.

Last week, I read somewhere that google-ad clickthrough rates are to increase significantly if the ads are placed between the posts as opposed to being placed alongside. Well, from my experience, whoever claimed this correlation was probably just lucky. Personally, I can’t really see any change in the clickthrough rates – it’s still in the […]

Helau! I’m Guilty.

But don’t call the cops just now, my gentle readers. As a matter of fact, I’m guilty of a crime that is not part of any tort law in the known universe. And actually, most people probably wouldn’t consider it a crime but simply a fun weekend. However, sometimes, things aren’t as simple as the […]

I broke my arm.

For those of you, my gentle readers, who haven’t read it yet over at Fistful, I am sorry to announce that I will not be able to write much in the near future, as I broke my left arm and am in the process of reeducating myself to type with one hand, just to avoid […]

Lack of Posts.

Sorry for the lack of posts. It’s been busy. But, gentle readers, don’t despair, there are posts in the pipeline, for “almost a diary” as well as for “A fistful of Euros.”

Dear Mac IE users – I know there are not too many of you reading this site, but if you read this, please let me know what it appears like on your screen. Thanks.

Server Down.

For those who wonder – the server was down from Saturday afternoon on – and for lack of any explanation by the service provider, I can’t even tell you why. Before that, it had worked without any noticeable interruptions for 4 weeks. I hope it won’t happen again. Still too hot. Still too busy. More […]

“­”

in preparation of this blog’s move to a movable type installation and into autumn clothes, I am modifying the code a bit and have also tried soft-hyphenation with the “­Â­” entity in the last post. The justified paragraphs look better this way – on my Internet Explorer 6. Netscape 7 and Opera 7.11 just ignore […]

My Gentle Readers,

I would like to inform you that recent hardware rescue efforts have been rather successful. As a fortunate consequence I am now able to post again. So in my next entry, I will try to explain why I – contrary to most German commentators – believe the Israeli policy to militarily weaken Hamas and other […]

Argh!

My (main) computer is still experiencing an extreme amount of unwarranted file-system induced “strokes”. Keeping it running and online long enough to write this is as good as it gets today. Hopefully, I’ll be able to fix this tomorrow. If anyone has any idea why my system (Win98SE) suddenly crashes all the time – and […]
