As you may have seen already I removed the link to my Facebook profile. Just in case you’re wondering. You may comment here or send me an email or try to find me on Facebook anyway if you like.

Nom, nom chinese food makes you happy. That’s because of all the flavor enhancers used. :mrgreen:

I’m on Facebook for a while now and recently started to use Twitter. In addition I use ICQ, WLM, IRC, e-mail of course, Xing and various other boards and communities, have two cell phones (one with Windows Mobile 6.5 and one with Android 2.3) and my netbook nearly constantly right beside me wherever I go. To make a long story short I hate all this. I hate social networks. I hate instant messaging. I hate being 24/7 on-line and reachable.

2011-01-18 @ 20:27: FancyBox General

Today I found a very nice script which replaces Lightbox, Graybox, Slimbox etc. It’s called FancyBox and different although doing quite the same like the rest. However, I like it because of its high customizability and ease of use. Transitions are smooth and beautiful even on lower-end machines, galleries can be scrolled through using your mouse-wheel and it even supports external content using an iframe in an overlay on top and separated from your own content.

Feel free to check it out here.

2010-12-27 @ 18:56: performance problems General

I noticed some ugly performance problems (stuttering background-animation, heavy cursor flickering, …) when displaying this site on machines with a high resolution (e.g. FullHD) and especially – even on lower resolutions like 1280×960 – when a Matrox graphics-adapter is installed. The reason for this may be the snow-script, which is quite hard on CPU. The animated background is just a GIF with five frames. However, my netbook (Intel Atom 1.6ghz and Intel GMA 950 graphics) has no issues with this site. Strange.

In case you neither got snow outside, nor up your nose, at least you have it on your screen now. Merry Christmas to all of you!
