Installation I just upgraded to Windows 10 using the download tool. Download took around 4 minutes and installation around 1 hour. I have an SSD and deactivated my AntiVir solution to get the quickest installation possible before leaving for work and it looked promising in the beginning having completed phases 1 and 2 of the […]

Getting The Most Out Of DropBox

June 25, 2012

Over the years I accumulated quite some private documents, files, important pictures and so on. I use to make backups every now and then but one can never really feel safe. Burning things on a DVD: beware of the limited lifespan! I had several DVDs not being readable anymore already. External HD: great for many […]

Thoughts On Creating Good Tutorial Videos

July 9, 2011

There’s a new book from Robert Fischer accompanied again, of course, by the Fibotrader charting software. It’s backing up the book’s content with tons of charts and signal reports. In time with the launch of the book we also published a revamped version 3.5.8 (we grabbed the chance and jumped to this version intentionally, anyone […]

October 24, 2010

There is quite some hype around in-memory technology and I admit freely: it is simply amazing. It also made me think of some software I wrote back in 1997. In school I was asked if I could do something about the manual tasks in the library. There were index cards and not much more. There […]

Accepting Age Tutorial

August 20, 2010

Sadly enough also me I’m getting older. Hitting 30 is quite special, so sitting there three days before my birthday, one quiet Friday afternoon, I figured it might be nice to prepare a little movie which I could attach to my birthday invitation. And also of course I could learn some new filming concepts. The […]

April 11, 2010

Es ist viel Zeit vergangen, seit ich hier etwas veröffentlicht habe. Das soll sich nun wieder ändern. Just heute habe ich ein interessantes Miniprojekt beendet, welches vorigen Oktober begonnen hatte. Für einen großen Galaball, an dessen Organisation ich beteiligt war, habe ich ein Werbevideo gedreht. Als Clou erscheint am Ende ein Text “Bring your hat” […]

From Dresden to Heidelberg

March 9, 2010

I wanted to make an experiment: how would it look like if one filmed the whole 5h way from Dresden to Heidelberg and sped it up to the length of a music video? So on one of my trips I installed my Sony Cam. On the first trip I made a test what to watch […]

Language Switch

December 7, 2009

I figured that if I start with tutorials I don’t want to limit the audience to Germany. Also many friends of mine are speaking English. So from now on, my blog posts will be published in English. If you don’t speak English, I can recommend Rosetta Stone, I use it for Russian currently. TwitterFacebookemail

Ein Quantum Toast

November 12, 2008

Heute habe ich in der neuen c’t über die Neuerungen von Windows 7 gelesen. Dabei habe ich zwangsweise stark am Innovationsgehalt zweifeln müssen und das gleich als Grund genommen, eine neue Kategorie hier einzuführen. Thema: Rückblick auf bisher entwickelte Software von mir, sozusagen praktischerweise auch als Sammelstelle und Erinnerung für mich. Grund des Anstoßes heute […]
