Journal Entry: Wed Dec 13, 2006, 6:49 AM


Days gone by

It is pretty long time ago since I posted a journal or a deviation here. And the only reason for my last deviation I uploaded was the whole thing around the removal of jark's $.

I just uploaded an actual screenshot of my server, so my acount reappears on some watchlists ;) I don't want to be forgotten though.

Work stuff

As my mood already says, I currently enjoy the show here in the office. I revolutionised the work with a somehow useless - but rather long - list of open tickets in our ticket management system. Well, it is not actually in the ticket system, but in an excel sheet, that is an abstract of the system ;) I added some macros and unified the usage of this list. But after about two weeks or so, my bosses decided to work on this list on their own. I don't know, how they managed it, because they really have a lack of knowledge in case of Excel, but they somehow did.
Yesterday a new team has been created for various tasks needed to push down the time a trouble ticket is open and active. I wanted to join this team, but I was rejected... No, wrong. I just haven't been selected for joining the "backdesk" team.

OK, so what is the problem here? The crux is, that I developed the method to get this list done in half the time and nearly no one else even knows, what to do, when they have the list on their screen. Pretty funny of cource.

Today a colleague asked me, if I could insert a new status into the list and I thought "Damn, can't you do that yourself?"

That's why I enjoy the show here at work. It just too funny to watch all the people mess up with this task in double the time as I did it correctly :D

Journal got CSS

Finally my journal also has got CSS formatting as I already wished since the first ones here at dA had theirs up and running. OK, for now it is not my own. It is a design from NovaDuck called MenuCSS and can be found here:

Just moved - nearly - all my deviations to the storage. That's my little supprt bit to jark

That's all I need and want to say.

Being stuck

Still can't think of anything else than her. Lay awake tonight and listened to the pouring rain, while writing another poem with my mobile phone. Not too comfortable to write with it, but I managed it somehow. Now I hope, that the preview for the poem will display here at dA soon. Until now, no picture appears.

I'm stuck here at work (well, better: practical course) for three months now and it is not as interesting as I thought it would be. I'm sitting in an empty bureau with neither a picture nor a calendar on the walls. Just an old - and yellow-brownish - Mac monitor, three boxes with some stuff, an old lamp, a used coffeecup, another table and two chairs linger around in the various corners of the room.
This does not really give me the feeling of not being alone...

Lyrics from the track I'm listening to:
"This is grade A 100% pure columbian Cocaine, Ladies and Gentlemen. Disco shit!"

Well, that's it for now.

2005-07-18 ___ M I S S I N G ___

Since 21st of June I do not have a job anymore. My mood already is not the beste so I'm much more depressed about my girl-friend going on holidays twice in the last month. Right now she is in Greece and get's burned in the sun and I'm sitting here and miss her like hell!

That's why my latest deviation is a poem. I wrote it, because she is absent and I do not know what to do :(

Another change is my "outfit". I switched my whole apearance on forums and stuff to the new - and very colorful - graphics. Hope that at least someone will like it. I do.

I will also go for a diefferent style in my journals. Until now, all my entries were in one single journal, but  at a closer look I noticed, that this became quite long and confusing. I now have a header for the journals and will work on a footer, too. Let's see, what will happen.

So long, live long and... not as alone as I am at the moment.

EDIT: Here we go with the footer. Hope you so not hate it too much though.

EDIT2: Could anyone tell me, how I can manage the images appear centered? Tried different methods, but nothing worked (ignore the spaces behind and before the braces):

:target: < img align="center" src="blah.jpg" > --> D'oh!
:target: < img style="text-align: center;" src="blah.jpg" > --> D'oh!
:target: < center >< img src="blah.jpg" >< /center > --> D'oh!

What else could I try? Did I miss a possibility?

EDIT3: With the help of Killermassaker i managed it to align my journal graphics centered. Cool! :) Thanks, buddy!

Hello everybody!

Just a small note from me:
I finally got my credit card and subscribed to deviantART yesterday :w00t: So my journals will look quite different in the future :D

Stay tuned ! :)

Today I only updated my deviantID v.2 to the new background colour. Well... that's it for today. As the headline already says, it is just a very small update ;)

Hello World...

the new revision 4 of deviantART is online and i stumbled accross the new colours on my user page. The ones, who know my deviantID v.2 do also know, that it was meant to have "no border", because I used the old journal background colour for the background in the ID, too. But now, it is messed up and I need to change the background in the image.

So, let's get ready to rumble!

Last weekend I was at the Wacken Open Air Festival ( in the northern German town Wacken which normally has 1500 citizens. But on this weekend there were about 43.000 Heavy Metal fans that partied all the days and nights from tuesday to sunday.
Naturally I don't often listen to metal, but this was an exception I made for a friend of mine. He always listens to this music and wanted me to come with him. In return he had to come to the Airbeat One Festival ( with me :D Well, both had fun on both festivals, so everyone is happy :D

Hello World!

Today I finally found the source of my creations with the blue ducky, that I use a my avatar and some other stuff :) It is a picture of TheRyanFord called "Duck of the Corn". I hope, I have got the permission to use it further on, otherwise I have to create many things new :| *looking at liquisoft praying*

Here is the Ducky in its original:…

I sat here in my office and was bored to death, because my colleagues are not very... well, let's say... communicative. So I fooled around with my beloved Photoshop and TADAA! Here is my latest addition to my gallery: Purity

Hi there!

Yesterday I created my new deviantID v.2 and put it online. Just a very tiny update, but I like the ID :w00t:

I think about subscribing to deviantART for a while, but - shame on me - I don't have a credit card and no PayPal-Account (?), so I cannot blow my money out :|

Hello again.

I recently upped some more wallpapers of pc components, more precisely mainboards and a mouse :)

:pointr: Abit NF7 2.0 with nForce 2 chipset
:pointr: Albatron KX600S Pro with KT600 chipset
:pointr: Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse
:pointr: nVidia Quadro FX graphics adapter

More pictures will follow during the day.

Hi folks!

Today I updated my gallery with some more ideas out of my sick brain ;)

As there are:
:pointr: My deviantID
:pointr: Two wallpapers dealing with the Shuttle AN35N Ultra mainboard for the PC
:pointr: A wallpaper without a background, so you can choose the colour you want to have
:pointr: A scrap that features lyrics by "System of a down"

That's it for now. Maybe I'll put some more picture online. But only if you're honest ;)

In the past few days I joined the ~hamburg designer group. Did not do anything for now, because of the lack of time, but I hope, I will grow in the group as a worthy member :)

I have got my for quite a long time now, but I never really took care of it, because I did never have the motivation to upload my pictures.

So, what do I exprect from my publication?
:pointr: 1st: Many visits on my userpage
:pointr: 2nd: Many comments on my artwork and the userpage
:pointr: 3rd: Getting more and more inspiration for future creations
:pointr: 4th: Getting into contact with other community members
:pointr: 5th: Maybe working together with the members
:pointr: 6th: Penetrating your eyes with lots of pictures ;)

My main focus is on digital art completely made in Photoshop CS (before: v7), where I normally combine some Stock Photos from others and my own with trendwhore stuff and other ideas. Mainly I create wallpapers in the 1280x1024 resolution that fit onto my 17" TFT. I really like minimalistic pictures of any size and always try to create some. But mostly I exaggerate and it does not even remind people of minimalism. The last few weeks I try to stay at one style per picture and not to mix it up.

So, I think that's it what you should know about me and my addiction to art. See my journal in the future for more information.

By the way: I am German, so please be patient with my english ;) Or better: Tell me mistakes in my postings and comments, so I refresh my english a bit :D
