Manchmal denke ich mir irgendwas 5. September 2009

  Manchmal denke ich mir irgendwas. Und zum Spaß Denke ich mir jetzt: ich bin aus Glas. Alle Leute, die da auf der Straße gehen Bleiben stehen, Um einander durch mich anzusehen. Un die vielen andern Kinder schrein: Ei wie fein! Ich, ich ich will auch durchsichtig sein! Doch ein… Weiterlesen

Bist du schon auf der Sonne gewesen? 5. September 2009

  Bist du schon auf der Sonne gewesen? Nein? — Dann brich dir aus einem Besen Ein kleines Stück Spazierstock heraus Und schleiche dich heimlich aus dem Haus Und wandere langsam in aller Ruh Immer direkt auf die Sonne zu. So lange, bis es ganz dunkel geworden. Dann öffne leise… Weiterlesen

Ich bin kein Musiker und auch kein Hi-Fi Freak. Ich bin kein Spezialist für Lautsprecher-Boxen und ich bin auch keiner der welche verkauft. Aber, ich bin ein Genussmensch, ein Mensch, der guten Sound schätzen und genießen kann. Jemand, der den Unterschied zwischen 192 kBit/s und 256 kBit/s deutlich hört und… Weiterlesen

Ohm speakers - Audible Emotions
Audible Emotions 31. August 2009

I wanted to post this for quite a while. Since several years I am looking for speakers for my iPod/iPhone. I bought several speakers all between 100 € to 400 € but never got too happy with what I purchased. Maybe the problem was that I wasn’t sure of what… Weiterlesen

What do real conductors do? 16. Januar 2006

  They select the program, determine how the pieces are to be played, choose guest artists, staff the orchestra, and manage some external relationships. In the orchestra, even though the musicians play together, each and every one of them plays alone. They each follow a score and know precisely when… Weiterlesen

Plugins on my self hosted wordpress site 25. April 2011

I am trying to use less as possible plugins. The ones which I think are needed the most is to make up for the features which are in wordpress.com but not on the self-hosted wordpress. “Automaticc” actually provides the “jetpack” to recover those features. So here are my wordpress plugins… Weiterlesen

Speichern und Versenden vieler bzw. größerer Dateien 17. Januar 2011

Für Speichern und externes Versenden vieler bzw. größerer Dateien kann man Online-Dienste nutzen, bei denen man Files „in eine Wolke“ hochlädt. Statt Dateien zu versenden, reicht es dann völlig aus, den entsprechenden Link zu verschicken – und bei keinem läuft mehr die E-Mail Box voll. Einer der wohl bekanntesten Dienste hierzu ist dropbox.com.… Weiterlesen
