Status Update

Me is not dead!

After I finished my 1 year “BOS” in Weißenburg/Germany, I have spent the last two month back in Ireland to support the local SEN group with some UC projects.
I applied at a couple of places to study and get my B.Sc. and will start in October in the Bavarian City Regensburg.
Beside college I plan to work as a freelancer trainer/consultant for UC stuff to get a couple of extra Euro in for college. Thanks to the SBB (Stiftung Begabtenförderungswerk Berufliche Bildung) that offered me a scholarship I don’t need to work full time beside college anymore.
Last but not least I managed in Ireland as well to finally update my MCSE 2000/2003 certificate to Windows Server 2008! I did not do the Enterprise Admin as of yet because I want to wait for the Windows 7 certification to come along.
The first few test installations of the new Microsoft Exchange 2010 are running and connected as usual via a gateway to the HiPath 3000 and the basic feature set is all working fine. I did not do that much investigation as I was busy working/applying for school and looking for a new home…
If anyone needs help with the new MS certification or is unsure about the requirements just let me know. Same if you want to apply for a scholarship at the SBB as well.


Siemens says: Certification Pioneer

Browsing through the Siemens Enterprise Communications certification website to check if there are any new certs available, I found my name on the latest news post. 

The post is basically about the first 3000 people being SOCx certified globally and I am together with four other lads the one and only certified person in our countries. (“Aldin Vucinic from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Holden Laidla from Eastland, Benedikt Riedel from Ireland, Kurian Cherian from Kuwait and Ian Bruce from Malta.”)

Luckily I am treated as Ireland and not Germany, because there are the most certified people. 

Thank you Siemens, to post my name without telling me 😉

ESL BOINC Race finished

After just a couple of days the BOINC race is finished because the guys in Israel didn’t get enough data in to utilize the offered  CPU power fully! 

Unfortunately I just managed to finish as second within the electronic sports league team, but considering the competition this is quite an acceptable position! It was a nice race, but sadly the crew did not keep the force properly posted, so a lot of CPU power was wasted along the way. 

Congrats to all the others that competed! You are doing a great job! 
Announcements usage statistics

I setup a couple of weeks back webalizer on this webserver to see how many visitors the URL does daily/monthly and below the results! 


3848 visitors in an average daily caused almost 38 Gigabyte of traffic, which is mostly due to the videos and the Counter-Strike maps on that web site. I hope this value will go up and I get an average of 200 visitors daily! Thank you very much for visiting my page and I hope you will continue doing so!

I joined a few days back the Electronic Sports League BOINC Race, to support that team getting a couple of points. I use my infrastructure since november last year to support several projects and universities. 

Some details about my current status can be found here and the latest ranking and stats within the ESL can be found on that link. The ESL is usually a online esport league but have for a couple of years now a BOINC team as well. Lets hope I can support those guys in reaching their goal.


Hello Beatles ;)

For a friend I just made a couple of easy Microsoft Powerpoint backgrounds. He is going to do up a presenation about his most favorite band.

Feel free to look at the pictures below… The pictures can be used as wallpapers as well.


For all pictures simply expand this page!


New web page layout

After more than a year with Nathans ElegantBlue template I decided to move on to a totally new style. After browsing the wordpress template page I found what I was looking for. A very flexible one developed by BytesForAll. I modified the header a bit to suit the content of the website and changed a couple of the html files for a nicer translation. I hope you enjoy the new design and I hope I can start blogging a bit more…



A couple of things to do…

After a couple of years working with already built applications and doing website programming with simple XML and PHP one of my friends inspired me to try something new. So I got myself the new Adobe Flash CS 4.0 and just finished downloading Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2008. This is going to be quite some learning curve but I want to start studying application engineering or media design. I did my first moving flash application which is just a small little icon flying around but if you are a real beginner this can be pretty tricky already. One thing I want to show is just how disappointed I am from While downloading the new Visual Express 2008 my downstream was limited to 100kb/s so I tried it from a server and look at the difference of the download speed for the German and the English Visual Studio…



Happy New 2009

I wish all of you a good start into the year 2009!
