I know it’s a little belated but I don’t want to miss wishing my readers, listeners, friends and fellows all the best for a happy, healthy and successful new year 2018.
There’s a number of people I have to thank for their help and support in 2017: Wilfried Bienek, Olaf Kemmler, Horst Pukallus and Michael Steinmann for their company and all the lively and funny discussions during our regular meetings in Wuppertal; Tomas Juriga for being a competent adviser for all matters related to Internet and information technology; my publishers Christian Dörge of Apex, Harald Giersche of Begedia and Uschi Zietsch of Fabylon; my Nova co-editor Olaf G. Hilscher and our publisher Jürgen Eglseer of Amrun and of course our new editorial helpers Thomas Sieber and D.A. and all our writers and contributors; my Second Life fellows Thorsten Küper aka Kueperpunk Korhonen, Barbara Lange aka Moewe Winkler, Asmita Duranjaya and my charming assistant Sol Eterno; and not the least my cousin and roommate Martina for sharing the loads of daily life.
I also wish my daughter Juliana all hapiness in the world and good luck for the continuation of her academic education. I’m confident that you will make your way and I’ll wait patiently for the day when I will meet you again.
