NARR Site Reworked
Today the NARR site has been reworked graphically and several links have been put to categories, so that hopefully it becomes more easy to find the GFX lists, programs, reviews, etc.

There also is a gallery with some of my cartoons now, created with Amiga drawing programs like PPaint or DPaintIV. Also the AGA demo 'Ayrton' by HITMAN is to find in the projects section, for which I contriuted the music.

Furthermore I advice my anims section for those who like witty cartoon animations. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Heise: Microsoft Fires Contra Open Source
«How does the evil come to earth? With Open Source, if one wants to believe Microsoft's chief for Windows, Jim Allchin. Open Source could smother each and every innovation; it "destroys intellectual property", said Allchin, and politicians would have to recognize this danger. Open source would be the death of any inducement to invest in research and development. Allchin "cannot imagine anything more worse for the software business". Withal he equates open source like the free operating system Linux with music exchange services á la Napster - an argument which immediately has been intensely offended by the open source community.»
Complete article under the title link (German).

Does somebody suggest business competition facing him? Supposedly yes. I wonder what you think about that. Personally I see great chances in open source to realize great projects. The Internet is best evidence for that and Linux meantime has got a huge community of rooters. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
