This Year I had a visitor from Japan. Nori-Kun a employee at NOSTRA, Osaka, Japan. We went to Kempten, the place where I have studied at bachelor degrees time. Far too cold (-11°C) and too much of snow (+50cm) for us. But anyhow – we made it and simply had a nice time there!
As usual: Happy New Year!

By incidence and interest I joined the student trip to Glashuette – the mekkah or valley of the watchmakers. Thankfully we had a Hotel in Dresden and could dip into some culture as well!
Glashütte on the major powerpoint and webslides looks like an Heidi-Village of watchmakers. But in the end its like every where in the world – SMUs and the big ones fighting for the best employees and legal support to maintain the 50% value creation within their products to perceive the name “Glashütte” within their brand.
Finally we had the chance to visit NOMOS the upcoming star, Glashütte Original the swatch owned enterprise and Nautische Instrumente Mühle Glashütte who is still in family property.
Anyhow its definetly interesting to see those magnificent and tiny semi-finished products on which a caliber is based on. Swiss milling in perfection!
Doing a manual installation of owncloud 7 can be a pain – if you don’t know what to do.
This is my personal way to get it installed:
- Create a new MySQL DB within KAS, note username and password
- Create a new subdomain if needed (proposed) and activate SSL (proposed)
- download owncloud as a tar-bz file
- upload the tar-bz file and unpack it right a way (best use webFTP)
- edit the .htaccess and
- add “php_value magic_quotes_gpc off” behind the memory limit
(in my case as line 14)
- add “php_value session.save_path /www/htdocs/<LOGIN>/tmp” as you dont have access rights to the official tmp folder
- CHMOD folder apps, lib and config to 755
- CHOWN owncloud folder to php-user
The actual installation
- go to the installation folder
- setup your own administrator account (save them somewhere safe)
- choose a MySQL DB, insert credentials as username, database name and the password.
- create a user for daily use
- CHOWN config.php at configconfig.php
- add ssl-account.com as a trusted domain
- edit and edit and add:
'overwritehost' => 'ssl-account.com',
'overwriteprotocol' => 'https',
'overwritewebroot' => '/oc.eure-domain.de',
'overwritecondaddr' => '^%eure-IP-bei-allinkl.com%$',
'forcessl' => 'true'

Final question: why do I post if others did the same? Because I need to remember it! 😉
Yes – I do like coffee or better espresso. So why shouldn’t I do home roasting?
Lukily the internet is full of tutorials and how tos, thus it was fairly a bit of work, but finally dead easy. I used a Severin 3751 Popcorn maker, a 20V external power supply, and a AC as well as an DC pulse-width-modulater made by KEMO to controll either fan speed as well as heating power. Power measurement will be done with Endress+Hauser equipment, but for now I’m using an cheap solution sold at Conrad. But anyhow – do nothing than patience if you are not supported or legally able to do this kind of work. This is 240V AC and far lot more than your body might take as an electric shock.
In the end – the result is astonishing and dead easy.
We met Kei in Japan and he was a special traveller who won our hearts by ease.
Thus I will do some promotion – please check out his first webpage representing his music and career.
We did it! We drove > 5200 km from Germany to Spain and back to visit very special friends who are living in Spain.
Too much fresh and healthy stuff to eat. Plenty of splendid moments. Thank you for beeing just perfect.
Doing it by urself is the best way to learn!
As my dropbox was running out of space, I had to take chance to use my webspace. Thus owncloud came into my mind. No real space limits and similiar performance.
Included the SSL-support although heartbeat is on its way.
Had been a long time – but finally I returned!
I spent the change of year with my family and had a special guest from Germany.
Thus a lot of pictures had been taken…
Yes – I made it! I started to work now for the Virtual Engineering and Training Center at ESB Reutlingen.
Virtual Reality including full 6DOF Tracking and an immersive powerwall. Wow. It’s getting more and more geek!
My last compact camera got lost during my trip in South Africa. So it was time for a new smaller compact camera than the D7000 by Nikon.
Inspired by a Leica which decorates my home made in 194X, I wanted to do the first step towards some more decent stuff, although its origin is actually Panasonic.
Pictures on JPG with sunshine? Astonishing!
Pictures on JPG with descent light? Fair and quite good!
