10 years ago, it was an afternoon at the office … not too much to do and I was browsing the mystics.de forum. We were posting about game stuff, when someone posted that a plane hit the World Trade Center. I recall being amused at first … not about the incident, but about the fact that a pilot could actuall hit such a big obstacle by mistake.

Theme Showcase

In personal by MyrddinLeave a Comment

As some of you may know I sometimes create wordpress themes. Once in a while you run across a design, that doesn’t fit the goal you had in mind, but at the same time is too nice to just thrash. There are probably a a couple of people who can use these and finish customization for themselves.

Personal: Helicopters

In personal by MyrddinLeave a Comment

In 1991-1996 I have been part of the German Army Aviation Forces. I had the choice to waste 1 year of my life as conscript or actually get something back from the army. I decided to become offcier, helicopter pilot and study at the University of German Armed forces in Hamburg. Back then you had to sign up for 14 years for this career. In 1994/1995 however I noticed that my real interest was computers and also my professor told me I was too intelligent to “waste my life in the army” 😀 Fortunately the forces got reduced at the …

Myrddin.de in new look!

In personal by MyrddinLeave a Comment

Here it is, the new look of the site www.myrddin.de! It all started out when I noticed that Google often pointed visitors tot he wrong pages related to the search terms. I started the category “recent searches” to write some posts to get google to point at better content by targeting at the exact search terms. When browsing for information about wordpress I realized that the look of the website was quite old and the “cool myrddin 3D model” (you can still find it under “My Characters“) cost a lot of loading time. Also there are some nice plugins that …

Don’t worry! New functions incoming!

While playing around with some wordpress functionalities I realized that my old theme was getting really old. No widget support and the posts are looking somewhat boring. During the next days I’ll play around with themes and designs … If you realize that some things aren’t working as they should you should come back in a few days. There will probably be minor design glitches, but the postings and comments should still be functioning. The new design will provide many useful interesting functions 🙂

TV-Series: Lost, Prison Break, Heroes, Supernatural

Its 03:25 am now and I have just finished watching another episode of Heroes. At first I had a lot of prejudiced against this series – I mean marvel kind of super heroes, new evolution to mankind, people developing their powers. It simply sounded so *yawn* Everywhere you hear that the series is so good, which is usually another sign that Something is so mainstream that I do not like it. So I refused to even look at the series, but last week I was so bored that I finally started to watch the first episodes and I am really …

Thanks for stopping by here!

In 1995 I started my first website and the University of Armed Forces in Germany in Hamburg and always liked to design them – that did not mean that I was realyl good at it 😉 About 10-15 years back I have read a nice book about the historical background of merlin and thus used the name myrddin from then on in all RPG’s I played, especially in MMORPG’s. It has been almost 10 years now that I have this domain active. During the last years I have more or less used the website simply as a design project without …

Lack of updates

In personal by MyrddinLeave a Comment

Sorry for recent the lack of uodates. After I left Blizzard Entertainment I was forced to to develop my patience in order to bear the bureaucracy of the French and German authorities. Currently I moved to Pirmasens, the town where I grew up. Its beatufully located in the south western part of Germany, close to the french border. There is a lot of forest, castles and sandstone rocks everywhere. The financial power of the area is quite low, so its hard to find a job. I am focussing on finding a job a little further north, close to Mainz and …
