I just got over quite an ‘office marathon’: the ‘tax bird’ was humming and I had to get some ‘tax things’ ready..
..and i actually got them ready. Hu!
..usually I enjoy doing some updates after having fought against such a paper monster: I would add a picture album to bilderbook, de-bug a few scripts, look at some log-files.. But this time it was a bit ‘worse’: I dared to do some upgrades instead of just updates: Wordpress, Drupal und Webedition. Hurra!
1) moved tillintallin to Wordpress
2) upgrade von livetourdates.org to a more reliable version of Drupal
3) and Webedition… - ..but that’s still work in progress - so I won’t tell any further details on this. Sorry. Maybe only that I just became an official ‘Solution Partner’ for Webedition..:] Hurray.
Well - that’s also my ‘top-three’ list of favourite CMSs.. ‘only’ Typo3, Expression Engine, and.. are missing..
..and additionally I just realized that I actually did manage to also update tillintallin.net! Hurray again!
PS: if anyone wants to upgrade from Drupal 4.5.1 to 4.7.4: please do backup your database first! ..and then the upgrade probably will only work as a two-step upgrade: first upgrade to 4.6.1. and then upgrade to 4.7.4.. otherwise it won’t work. See also: http://drupal.org/node/100430
PS2: and by then I actually also managed to start another blog: mynu.tv ..a blog, that will show some of my ‘watching-habbits’.. - ..which I almost forgot fighting the paper monster..:]

I just read in the English edition of the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat that the ships of the ferry fleet ‘Superfast’ have changed their owner - and that the new owner
wants to kick just kicked out everybody and hired a new crew, that would get aproximately only about a quarter of the salary the previous crew got.
Huh! Sounds like a very ‘chaep’ trick to me!
..and how do we get from Berlin to Helsinki by car this summer..?! ..still planning..
meanwhile you may also enjoy some ‘ferry trip pictures’ of some previous summers at my other homepage www.bilderbook.org..
-> going superfast (Rostock->Hanko)
-> ferry tales 02 (swedish ferry to Stockholm)
-> ferry tales 01 (Finnjet to Helsinki)
Well - actually I was just doing some research about the ‘Palace of the Republic’. I stil can’t believe that this historically important piece of ‘free space’ is now about to be torn down.. but that’s a different story.
Anyways - suddenly an old friend of mine came across my way..:]
..have you seen anything like this before..?
If not: the “cheap D.I.Y.-TV-Tower” is still available for download-, cut-out- and glue-together-action ..:]
ps: see also: www.hauptstadtblog.de
I can’t believe, how seldomly I seem to be blogging on this page..! This shall change..! ..at least I thought it would be a great to try..:|
I would actually have enough good excuses for this grievance - but I don’t want to blame any of my projects for not taking the time for my projects.. - ..that would be just too much. Instead I’ll try to make things better - and write about this time problem.. which solves it already half-way.
This might sound a bit complicated, but I think it’ll work..:]
By the way: I write, post and blog also on other websites.. and one brand new (german) page is located at blog.zeit.de/design, a freshly started blog called Ding-Pong-Blog - a dialogue about the things and the design of the things of everyday life.
well.. greetz, t..
might be. Time is running, cant’t believe that the last tillintallin-update happened already three months ago! Well. So.
The last post was about the elections.. It actually took also the german government some time to update.. but now they’re ready for take-off - and Germany has its first female “Bundeskanzlerin” - Angela Merkel.
“Bundeskanzlerin” was also just selected to be “the word of the year 2005″. Hm.
Enough for now..? Enough for now.
..to be continued..
“…oben an der Spree…” (”SEEED” from Berlin)
There is quite some words beginning with the letter ‘B‘ that are having at least some impact on my everyday life:: last weekend (last post) it was “Bundestagswahl” - the german elections, where not only the “Bundestag” is elected (or not) but also the new head of the government is found… which is in this case the old one.
How this will turn out to be good or bad for whatsoever…? i dont know.
the other “Bs” could stand for “Bombs” and “Bush” - a subject i would like to have a focus on… but i fear that nobody’s really interested. I mean some people have this point of view and others have others. And who the REAL terrorists are and who’s allowed to throw catshit and/or cruize missiles at whom - and when - and why - and if:: how many?! … these are the questions that should matter - but it seems that they dont. So i’ll skip these “B”-subjects again.
finally i may draw a conclusion that might sound familiar to you and me (and also G.double-U)::
—> “just B!”
yours sincerly, t… B)
“..everyone’s a winner”..:)
First I was not so shure if I should really try to comment anything on Germany’s elections - but now it seems as if I’m already quite involved (e.g. with a project, which is documented in my portfolio) ..so I’ll give it a try and post some thoughts about the current situation.. Well. Here we go..:
The first numbers are published - and it seems as if neither of the two “Dream Coalitions” can rule the country: neither the “red-green” coalition of Gerhard Schroeder’s centre-left Social Democrats Party (SPD) and the Green Party, nor Angela Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) together with the Free Democrats Party (FDP) got enough votes to form a government.
So theoretically one of the following four scenarious would still be possible:
1) the “Great Coalition”
..between Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) and Schroeder’s centre-left Social Democrats Party (SPD)
2) the “Traffic Light”
..between “red” (Social Democrats Party SPD), “yellow” (Free Democrats FDP) and “green” (the Green Party)
3) the “black-yellow-green” coalition
..because of the colors it’s also sometimes called the “Jamaikan Coalition”..: between “black” (Christian Democrats CDU/CSU), “yellow” (Free Democrats FDP) and “green” (the Green Party)
4) the “red-red” coalition
..between the Social Democrats Party SPD and the left-wing “PDS/Linke”
At the very moment neither of the four scenarions seems to be possible - or let’s rather say “wanted”. At least if you listen to what “they” say on TV..:)
..to be continued..
So - I didn’t see Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11″ yet, but I saw “The Day After Tomorrow”. And with both movies I connect some great hope: that the
U.S. of America Mr.George Double-U and his friends will come back to a state that could be called ‘normal’, stop that self-destructive paranoia, sign the Kyoto Protocol!
And, please, kids, don’t believe -everything- that somebody with pockets full of money and a mind full of …interests… tells you!
And now for the picture of this post: Berlin is full of shit - literally! - dogs’ shit. So some people invented different ways of making the shit obvious, so that other won’t step into it… which is nice :)
