Little 15

Another year has gone by and this site turns 15 years old this week. That’s pretty old in the web world.

The web of 2009 is very different from 1994. Back then there were no blogs, communities or RSS feeds. Google was not even started and popular sites like YouTube, Flickr and Pirate Bay were a decade into the future. No one used mp3 files and very few had email access. Tell that to the kids of today, they won’t believe you.

Happy birthday, my teenage site! May you serve page requests for many years to come.

Wazzup in Vaduz

"Vaduz Castle is overlooking the town from a hill, a short walk from the center. It’s really a postcard view with the alps in the background, which I’m sure the prince enjoys as he sips his morning coffee while towering above his loyal subjects."

The dark days of Sarajevo

"The city survived on the edge of annihilation and has started to recover, but the stone walls still seem to cry out in lament of all the horrible things they have seen."
