So I am sitting in Perth, it’s sunny and 32celsius/90fahrenheit outside and my mobile phone doesn’t work.
Actually, my phone works, just my mobile network carrier vodafone doesn’t get their act together.

Should I blog English or not?

Dienstag, den 21. Juli 2009

When starting this blog, the idea was to just keep some notes and if possible share useful information about the Open Text Web Solutions Management Server (which I perhaps never will stop calling “RedDot CMS“).
Since I have decided to live in Melbourne and most of the day I think, speak, write English.
I sometimes miss writing […]

Do you already have a google profile?

The RedDot CMS in three sentences - Das RedDot CMS in 3 Sätzen

Samstag, den 17. Mai 2008

- To me RedDot is like a love-hate.
- On the one hand it has taken way too much time until the Navigation Manager arrived (which still isn’t perfect), on the other hand this platform is so flexible and well tought-out, that I hardly ever had to say “It won’t work”, somehow or other there was […]
