Back home with 80kg luggage!

Somehow I managed it to fly back home to Austria with 80kg luggage including my bike! This was just possible with the help of Otto, who took me along from Skövde to Göteborg. Tack så mycket!
Now I will celebrate christmas with my relatives and start to work again in january at TiSUN.

It's possible to fly with so much extra luggage without extra costs, thanks to a lot of sports equipment.

One year in Sweden!

Enjoy the Diashow I created for the international dinner with the IC. All four seasons are covered with beautiful pictures and nice songs from Sverige!

Team Tower speed-climbing contest!

Hej Hej!

Yesterday I won the speed-climbing contest on the Team Tower on top of Billigen. It was a tournament to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Klätterklubb. In the final I climbed against Magnus the trainer of the "Sverige Klätter National Team" and was a little bit faster.

Thanks you all for this great day, especially for the nice dinner in the evening. This was definitely one of my best days in Sweden.

Good movies of the climbing have been uploaded by Pippo to YouTube:

and many more!

I also cut another movie of Miquel and me in the Billingen boulder room. Always a great time to meet locals and solve problems together. Enjoy it here.

A real enemy for the RIAA cowards!

The RIAA just won a lawsuit against a randomly chosen privat person, see details on or .

It's just another act of trying to frighten the people. Their tactics are even comprehensible - the only chance for them to get back the past golden days is to react now. After a critical mass of people is used to filesharing, the common sense will make it impossible for them to achieve big changes.

BUT WAIT, I think you've missed that boat already ...

Because the "American Culture of Suing" is like a hollywood movie for an European, I want to see you fighting an equivalent enemy:

The clever RIAA people even provide a form, where I can squeal a friend who helps me everyday - called "Google":

click to see my Google piracy report

You think this is some kind of funny picture manipulation of mine? Would be good, but in fact it's real.

Somehow this form reminds me of an ugly part of german history, but enough.

Now take some minutes and watch this movie: NO COPY

Design Notebook Lifter

Introduction to Model Workshop, was a small preliminary course to be allowed to work in the universities design workshop. This is compulsory if you want to attend the „Industrial Design Project“ course. For me the working with the machines was nothing new and the basic instructions were just perfectly short. Then we - I worked together with Delia and Malono from Spain - had to do practical projects. Highly motivated I constructed and manufactured a Design Notebook Lifter for my Macbook Pro.

proud of the construction and finished manufacturing

the Design Notebook Lifter is everyday in ergonomic use

More pictures of the whole project can be found here.

Feel free to copy and develop the design - it's (CC)!

This is the time of my life!

I already have a wonderful life in Austria, but the things that happen here in Sweden to me are even better!

This is the first blog of my Erasmus semester in Skövde. I'm in Sweden since the 10th of August and these 2 weeks pushed my life to a new level. The time with the students is so much fun and excitement I never had dreamed of.
Everyday you build up new friendships with a lot of interesting persons. I want to call this atmosphere unique: the candidness and cheerfulness of the people I meet everyday is indescribable!

I go out now to celebrate a Brännboll tournament victory. I will describe details of my adventures later.

for the moment, let the pictures speak for themselves:
