Bio: I was born in Bochum/Germany in 1956, grew up in Bochum and am
still living and working there [so, the Ruhr area of Germany can't be
that bad! :-))]. I haven't got a family of my own, but have some pet
canaries (5 at present) whose company I very much enjoy.
I am a librarian at an institute at the Ruhr University Bochum. I got my
first computer in 1991, and since I was interested in this stuff from the
beginning, I was also made responsible for the computers of the
institute a few years later.
In 1996 I began to put web pages together -- first to just share some
photos of my canaries with friends from the Canary mailing list. These
first pages were terrible, but then, I kept on learning and I think they're
now quite nice to look at.
I began with Paint Shop Pro (which was then version 5) in early 1999
was addicted immediately. Fortunately, I soon found the Paint Shop
Users Group and joined their Self-Learning Programme which they
in June 1999. That helped me an awful lot in progressing my skills!!
Essay: Meanwhile, I'm writing tutorials for the SLP myself, and am assisting
with the tutorials section. Furthermore, I've begun to translate the
tutorials into German, my mother tongue, which is a lot of fun to do.
So, if you've got German-speaking friends who're looking for PSP
tutorials in German, just send them to the PSPUG Tutorials section! :-))
