February 19th 2004: Finished!!!
I've finally done it! I've just uploaded the last page planned for the CPC section. Now all the demos, programs and short program I deem worthy to mention are being presented on a separate web page in the CPC section!
The next thing on my agenda is the download page on my webpage. You can expect this to appear on this page by the end of next week (February 27th).
December 26th 2003: Megablasters Tribute
Over the Christmas holidays I've finally found the time to finish my Megablasters tribute!!!
Now you can find out everything you ever wanted to know about my only commercial CPC game ever!
I may have to update the Megablasters pages soon, since I asked Rex to write some comments as well, but I thought I should upload the current version already as my special Christmas present to the remaining CPC fans out there!
So enjoy reading these 24 pages with over 300 kb of hints, information and thoughts on this exceptional CPC game!
November 28th 2003: Guestbook
I just added an old guestbook Perl script I had lying around on my computer to my homepage. Now you can leave me comments, ask questions and tell me
all the things you ever wanted to tell me, but couldn't.
Other news are: I'm almost done with my Megablasters tribute, I just need to add two or three more pages. I hope to upload the tribute around Christmas 2003 (so obviously I wasn't able to keep my promise from the September news... Oh well gaduate students - they never keep their deadlines!).
So stay tuned for a comprehensive page on my only commercial computer game, Megablasters.
September 24th 2003: Pictures, pictures, pictures
I've uploaded three photo albums to my homepage covering past events of this year (in the party pictures and Amstrad sections respectively)
I'm about to leave for a two week holiday trip to Crete/ Greece. When I get back I intend to finish my complete coverage of my game Megablasters and upload it to my homepage. I'm confident that I can finish the Megablasters documentation by the end of October 2003. So why don't you drop by on October 31st and see whether I kept my promise or not!
Until then I hope you enjoy this page and that you come back later this year!
Mai 7th 2003: Changes and prospects
During the past weeks I've updated the CPC secion of my homepage on an irregular basis. As I write there are information and images from 29 demos and 17 games online and yet there are still more to come. I haven't even started to write up my Megablasters Tribute (in which I intend to reveal all secrets, present all enemies and levels - so there's a lot of work to do...) and I also have a number of unfinished games, some demos and intros for games that I cracked that still need to be described. So be patient and enjoy the information that's already online.
One question that I'm always being asked is: "Where are the .DSK files?". The answer is simple: "On my PC at home.". The reason for not creating download links on each of the 46 pages covering my CPC productions is not this simple. I intend to transform my homepage into an interactive experience where you have to sign up to download the DSK files, where you can vote for my productions and sign the guestbook or participate in Trivia games. Since I'm still working on the CGI routines for that I don't want to put up the DSK Files so that I don't spoil these plans that I have.
Please be patient with the DSK files. They are coming! I'm currently highly motivated to continue my efforts to complete the CPC section of my homepage even though being a doctorand doesn't leave me this much leisure time anymore.
February 18th 2003: Some new CPC game previews
Finally I've found some time to put up a few new pages in the CPC games section.
Since I've started working I don't have this much leisure time anymore, so the additions to my homepage will be rather scarce in the next few months...
The good news are that I'm working on the DSK Files for all the demos and games introduced on these pages.
The bad news are: I don't know when I'll be done with compiling these DSK files... just hang on there and check out my page every now and then!
December 15th 2002: Animagic 2002 pictures
I've added a link to a page with pictures from the Animagic 2002 in Koblenz 2002 earlier this year. I've also changed the navigation and split the CPC Demos page into a CPC Demos and CPC Games page.
Decmber 1st 2002: No studying anymore
For over two weeks I'm no student anymore! I've finished my diploma on November 19th and started with my PhD training on the day after that!
As the past two weeks have shown I don't really have this much more spare time being a researcher with a full time job, but I still intend to continue to create new pages with information on my CPC demos and games!
Check out the actual list with 33 different demos and games: My CPC Productions
October 11th 2002: Added another page to Amstrad section
I should write more papers and exams!
Everytime I have to study for an exam or work on a paper I come up with so many things I would
rather do than studying - and thus I actually do get some work on my homepage done. Amazing!
Today I added a new page to the Amstrad CPC section. Click here to check it out!
(Actually I've just changed the layout on a CPC page I used to have on my old homepage, but still that's better than nothing, isn't it?)
February 15th 2002: "Random quote each day" Perl script
I'm currently doing a lot in Perl and so I got back into the mood to write a small Perl programm for my homepage. It was really fun again!
Btw: I've found out that the public server of my old homepage is gone for good - hacker attack. Sorry about that...
January 7th 2001: Added my New Years Eve pictures
After popular demand I've scanned all my pictures from Jodel5's New Years Eve party and added them to these pages. Enjoy the show!
September 7th 2001: Opened my Amstrad CPC section
I've finally taken the time to write an introduction to my planned Amstrad CPC section of my new homepage!
But don't expect too much. I'm still very busy preparing for my exams and working on my Diploma thesis. So I cannot tell you when I'll continue the CPC section.
Don't worry, I still have it in the back of my head all the time. So sooner or later I will put up more CPC stuff on this page.
June 28th 2001: Opened my CPC Reunion picture page
Even after killing my whole hard disc with all my work of the past 10 months I've taken the time to scan my pictures of the
CPC Reunion 2001. Unfortunately all my converted CPC files have also been lost - I have to get back to my CPC to transfer
them to the PC again. So the DSK files with my old demos and games will have to wait a little longer...
June 24th 2001: Minor changes
This week has seen some minor changes to my homepage: the first content pages have moved in! The two pages about a Japanese Animation convention called Animagic just contain pictures, though. But at least it's a
These two pages are mainly meant for my friends who were at the Animagic 2001 in Koblenz with me this year. But anybody
who is interested in this stuff is also welcome to browse through the images. Back orders of the images are limited to
my friends only! Sorry.
