Moving Across

I still like my blog page here for nostalgic reasons, but by now I have pretty much moved most things over here to Google Plus.



I've moved this and a few other sites to a new server. It's probably about time to also update the content management system (CMS). This site runs on Silverstripe which is still an amazing CMS, but more up-to-date versions are much better on the resources (especially on memory) and have many other improvements. Plus I'm much more familiar with the system now. So if I find the time...

Photo Overdose

Abel Tasman National Park
Kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park on the New Zealand South Island, just a one-hour drive from Nelson, my home town in 2006.

Get your photo overdose right here on! I love the Silverstripe photo gallery module! I could finally upload a large amount of photos from the last 5 years to the new gallery section on this website in no time: about 500 photos in 19 galleries.

I know this is complete overkill, so below is a small(ish) selection.

Double Shift

About three weeks ago I moved up from Nelson to Auckland for a new job at the University of Auckland. For all those of you who know neither Nelson nor Auckland I should probably mention that I migrated from Germany to New Zealand about one year ago (with some detours over Australia).
Since today my domains and are also located in New Zealand. It just makes things easier for me.

One thing I realized just before is that there seems to be a problem to comment articles at the moment. I will fix that later.

I hope I will finally find some time soon to upload some pictures from all the places I have visited so far in New Zealand.

Beached at Australian shores (reprise?)

Yuki and Me

So much to tell ... and still not enough time. Sorry for that. I think I have to take a whole day off in order to get this page a bit more up-to-date.

In brief: Yuki and I went back to Australia. This time it´s Sydney. At the moment we live in Kenneth Street, Tamarama, just between Bondi and Tamarama Beach. However, before you just come over and knock on my door, you should better give me a call. Everything is changing so quickly these days. For my phone number, etc., please check my contact details.

I currently work at Idatso, sharing my working hours and so with my big boss, Hans The German (they are everywhere), aka »That Huge Guy«.

Well, the latest news: I lost my long hair, I found some new glasses and currently I consider myself to be a non-smoker.

And I found some new dodgy t-shirts during our one-week stopover in Japan (if you care at all, see the picture on the right).

Of course there´s more, and of course that will have to wait once again. Sorry for that.

To be continued ...
