The Website you are reading now was started in 2000 with a Microsoft Software package called “Frontpage.” Within ten years, it grew to around 20,000 monthly visitors, and in October 2011 I began to rebuild it from scratch and transformed it into a blog based on the WordPress platform.  The current design was created in August 2013, and it has now reached its end of life because website technology and the Internet keeps changing fast. The traffic has increased to a point where a more powerful web server is necessary. The new blog also has a new provider specializing in WordPress.

The current website,, will stay online for another two to three years, but will not be updated anymore. In the final year 2018 it had over 250,000 unique visitors, around 400,000 visits total, and more than a million hits per month. There are approximately a thousand subscribers who will be transferred to the new website as well.
