AHCI Driver for eComStation
On behalf of Mensys B.V., we developed an AHCI driver for their eComStation
operating system. The driver is running on OS/2 versions 3 and up as well as all eComStation versions.
The source code is available under the terms of the GPL; if interested, please check out the driver's project site.
Thanks to this project, the latest technology for desktop hard disks is available for the OS/2 family of operating systems.
Hidden Hero is a portal community site that was created to promote local live music; unfortunately, it is available in German language, only.
Main goal was to support the many unknown yet talented hobby musicians who never get their
music out of their practice rooms; Hidden Hero wants to help them gain more public recognition and

Sail Around The World Website
The operators of www.wir-sind-weg.eu (we-are-away) are on a sailing trip around the world.
Our task: create a web site that shows their current position as well as the route taken so far on a map on the start page - besides a blog that conains their travel diary.
We used Wordpress as a basis and to provide a full-featured blog site. To provide the position functionality, we developed a Wordpress plugin that receives position emails from the skipper's EPIRB device. This device is rather smart; it can send distress messages as well as "we are ok" messages that contain the current position.
BHLE is a Windows-based desktop application that we developed for a large German health insurance company. The software is used to describe customer surveys and other forms to assist and speed up OCR-based evaluation of form data.
The software is optimised for large data volumes and speed and was written in C and C++.
We helped a local recreation facility to track their sales in a way accepted by the tax authorities.
Our task: create a desktop application running on Windows and Linux that provides the easiest means imaginable to track sales.
We created a desktiop application that is optimised for touch screen operation and is configured with a simple INI-style text file (much simpler to edit than XML). At end of day, the software sends an e-mail that contains all items sold, including article groups and amounts.
The software was written in C++ using wxWidgets.
