Back to Main or simply Back


How it started:

In autumn '94, a friend of mine showed me THE WEB for the first time. I was quite impressed and when I heard it was possible to place my own pages on this server, I started to code them. So in the summer of '95, I began to experiment with the most common tags and started collecting graphics that I could use. The implementation of the 'Smells like...'-audio-clip was my first highlight. But I did not want my pages to be accessible until I added some graphics that I scanned myself. In January '96 I had the opportunity to play with the scanner of a friend (thank you, Markus!) and a few days later, my pages were ready for public access.
In the meantime, I added a couple of pages including Java-Applets, Javascripts, GIF-Animations and loads of other stuff. I helped Günther Krauß to put up the Dodecathlon Pages during August and September '96 and created graphics for this page as well. In 1997, I put up the web presentation for a local enterprise and in summer 1998, I did the Dodecathlon III -pages

Why ?

Why do I do this, you might ask. One reason is for sure my own satisfaction and entertainment. Another one is that these pages allow me to learn and practise HTML. As I do not use some sophisticated tool as "Frontpage" or another of these meanwhile quite usable WYSIWYG-HTML-tools, I have full control over the source code and I know what a <TAG> is. By creating web pages I also made little excursions into JavaScript and of course, there is the need to learn how to handle some graphics applications as well. Extension of my capabilities is what I'm talking about. Not to forget that there are some pages within my site (yes, there are!) that have content that could interest others.  

Why in English?

Firstly to improve my English language capabilities. Writing these pages in English is the only time that I really use English. I think that reading English texts should be no problem for me, but I have a clear deficit in creating whole sentences in English. These pages are my way to work on this. On the other hand, English is the language of worldwide communication and it allows people from all over the world to read these pages.

Some current statisctics:

At the moment, this web site comprises 601 files that need 8,159,472 bytes of hard disc space. (Excluding the frontend-welcome-page)
