Wassersportcenter Berlin

Hey, today we (my co-student Lennert and me) published a new website for a water sports center in Berlin! It’s simply called Wassersportcenter Berlin.

 

www.wassersportcenter-berlin.de

The new website is based on WordPress and some plugins for the events/booking system. It was once again a cool experience to work on a bigger project and knowing that the website will be seen by many visitors and customers is a good place to start and stay motivated.

Overall I’m also very satisfied with WordPress’ customisation features and the easily usable and  well-documented API. Also this is one of my first projects featuring a lot of SVG graphics – they’re basically being used for all images except for photos.

Go ahead, check it out and book a course if you want to learn surfing or boating.

Frau Hegnauer Soundtrack is available again.

I noticed one of the theater soundtracks I made (for the drama “Frau Hegnauer kommt”) has not been available online for some time. That’s because the corresponding website was shut down since the piece is not being played anymore.

Anyway, I’ve got my own website and it’s a good place to put it up again:

Frau Hegnauer kommt (Soundtrack) (288 downloads)

P.S.: Trailer #1 and Trailer #2.

Using Canon EOS Utility without a CD

February 3, 2015 No Comments ,

A few years ago I bought a DSLR camera by Canon and I’m very happy with it. What “grinds my gears” is that Canon users are required to keep and use their packaged software CD whenever they need to install the corresponding software for their cameras. Because all you can get online are “updaters” that would update the previously installed tools (which you’re supposed to install via CD only).

Luckily there are easy ways to alter those updaters in order to properly install the tools without the need of a CD. I’m just wondering what the motivation behind this installation/update policy is. Does it really hurt to give proper installers to everyone via the internet and forget about putting CDs in the boxes? (Let alone four thick manual books in four different languages.)
