I am here to help. You can utilize my broad knowledge from more than three decades of experience in Information Technology. I have likely already seen a situation like yours and know the hidden challenges and opportunities. I have been involved with numerous large scale IT projects, including international ones, for various Christian organizations, acquainting me with their special needs. I am keenly aware of security issues and understand the need to develop and maintain these projects on a tight budget.

My current part time employment provides me the opportunity to assist small businesses or households with IT improvements without it costing you the normal high cost of IT support. I can offer solutions at a minimal cost, solutions that require little effort and are thus efficient for you.

If you are looking for a German in Germany for managing events, having an address in Germany or similar tasks, I can recommend my wife’s Büroservice Marion Stut (German language only).

Eliminate CMS Patch Stress by Using a Static Site Generator like Jekyll (2017-01-17)

During the years, I have set up and/or maintained a number of websites for christian organizations and individuals. But I don’t have the resources to be ready 24/7 to apply security patches to their content management systems (CMS). So I need an architecture that doesn’t need security patches, which means to have only static files, no executable code, on the public web server.

Windows 10 Privacy Tweaking Programs (2016-03-11)

As is widely known by now, Windows 10 has some privacy issues. As I am helping a number of computer users, I was looking for a program that enables those users, most of them not interested in the technical details, to fix these privacy settings without having to learn all about them. Summary For non-technical users, I recommend O&O Shutup 10. For technical users, I recommend W10 Privacy.

Text Folding by JavaScript for Instructions (2014-12-16)

When you are writing technical instructions for a non-technical audience, e.g. about setting up an email client, addressing a group of entrepreneurs, you are in a dilemma: The instructions should cover all the details and background information, but also the instructions should be short, so people aren’t overwhelmed by the size and can process them within a very short span of undivided attention. In this article I’m describing, and offering for download, a small JavaScript library enabling you to create foldable text by simply defining CSS classes for certain areas of your text.
