Knowledge

I know the operating systems MS-DOS, Windows 3.1/95/98/NT/2000/XP/7 and nearly every standardsoftware.

I also develop software in Visual Basic 6 and 2010, mainly database-applications. Some programs for download can be found at Software. Orders for software development are welcome.

A special field of mine is the development of internet homepages (e.g. Pierre & Sprachferien).

With CorelDraw I make artistically drawings and I sometimes was present at contests - e.g. the annual Corel design contest. A small selection of my computer-graphical "masterpieces" can be found at the Picturegallery.
