For me, the mysteries of the stars have always been a major hobby. At the age of six I actually wanted to become an astronaut, because there was so much in outer space that was to be explored.

I live in Hirrlingen, a village in the south-west of Germany and attend the grammar school Eugen-Bolz-Gymnasium in Rottenburg, a small town near the place where I live.
I actually do not have access to the internet at home - the phone line would certainly collapse if I connected my 2400 baud modem with my 386. Though, I can access the web via the library of the university in Tübingen, and, what is more important, via the computer network at my school I help administrate.
When I was researching for an article for the school magazine I was stumbling on a link that lead me directly to the ThinkQuest server. To me, it has been a great effort to provide information to students at the age of 12 to 19. And in most cases it's only a few days before the deadline when you have new ideas and find severe mistakes in your entry.
So, what do I do when I don't make entries for an internet educational project? Hm... let me think. As I have a pretty tight schedule, there is not that much time left I can spend with rather useless things like watching TV, and feeding my Tamagotchi.
