  • Another update of the CMS

    A few days ago I did another update of my CMS system. In the end it was less work than I thought.

    You might have noticed some re-organisation of my web pages. The menu structure has changed and is more clean now, I hope. Besides that I did an update of my “about me” page so that it better reflects my current situation.

    The contact form did not work after the update. I fear that it even did not work before the update and that nobody received an error message. Sorry! So it might be that there were some messages lost. I fixed this now and promise to be more careful with the contact form in the future! Please send your message again, if you did not receive an answer for your previous message!

    Now I will prepare more content for the pages. I have to upload many pictures from my last vacations. Expect many more nice pictures here soon …

  • efaLive 2.0 released!

    Today I released efaLive 2.0. It includes the new version 2.0 of efa, which was released today, too. Both, efa and efaLive, bring many new features that make life easier for users and administrators. efa 2.0 is a new development from scratch. So there was a lot of effort to finish it.

    Here are the changes of efaLive:

    • [N] Configure efa shutdown action
    • [N] Configure network settings (including Wifi, VPN, mobile broadband [experimiental])
    • [N] Configure keyboard
    • [N] shutdown/restart PC buttons in efaLive setup
    • [N] Screensaver
    • [N] File manager
    • [N] NTP support
    • [N] Configure date and time
    • [N] Restore backup from USB device
    • [N] General backup/restore dialog
    • [N] Support for NTFS formatted USB sticks
    • [E] Update efa 2 to version 2.0.0_00
    • [E] efa 2 is default now
    • [E] Enable/disable automatic USB backup
    • [E] Optional dialog for automatic USB backup

    You can find the download links on the efaLive page. Unfortunately efaLive is only available in German at the moment. For the installation you can choose English. In this case the whole system should work in English, but this is not tested. I hope I can provide an English version soon.

  • Demo against ACTA

    Yesterday I have been to a demonstration against ACTA. There were less people than two weeks ago, but enough to make some noise :-)

    I took a few pictures at the demonstrations. You can click on the image below to see all pictures. On the picture below you can see a sign that shows a bit the general conflict between many people, especially young people, and the politicians. It says “Your politics is a mystery to us”.


    At the crossing Breite Straße and Graf-Adolf-Straße a few of the demonstrators sat down in front of the demo truck so that the whole crossing was blocked for a while.


  • Betaversion of efaLive 2.0 available!

    Today I released a beta version of the upcoming efaLive 2.0. efaLive 2.0 has some interesting new features which should make the life of the administrator more easy. There is a file manager, a GUI editor, a GUI for backup and restore, a configuration manager for network connections and some more things. So please try it out and report bugs, if you find some. Many of the changes are a result of the feedback from the seminars in Berlin and Osnabrück in September last year.

    The final release is planned to be released around 26th of February. Probably I can announce it in the web seminar (German only …).

    For more details about efaLive and the download links you can check the efaLive page.

  • CMS update

    I have just updated my CMS Joomla to version 1.5. It was a lot of work. Most of the things are running now. I hope I did not forget too much :-)
