Winter Holiday, Spring Work

Written by Denis Stadler on . Posted in Personal Thoughts

Austria was as always incredibly beautiful but my holiday has ended, so it’s time to go back to work!

There is a challenging spring ahead, when except for the work in projects, I would like to achieve the following certifications:

  • MCSA: Windows Server 2012
  • MCSE: SharePoint Solutions
  • MCSD: SharePoint 2013

Easier to say then do, but… los geht! :)

Tiredness, Burning Eyes and Computer Screens

Written by Denis Stadler on . Posted in Personal Thoughts

As any person that spends more than 10 hours a day, five days per week in front of a computer screen I am always interested in having good technical equipment to work with.

Having to consider my proudly genetically inherited myopic astigmatism, I would say that for me the computer screen is the most important thing to consider when investing in computer technology.

My aim though is not to transform this post is not a technical comparison that would include DPI, resolutions or other specific technical terms that characterize a computer screen, but rather to take a subjective peak at two technologies present on Microsoft OS and on iOS powered devices: Clear Type Text and Retina Display.

Clear Type Text

It is quite important to check whether it is enabled on your Windows computer, if that computer has a flat screen. To see the difference, just open the Control Panel and from the Display settings disable the clear type text.

My first mission – Svendborg, Denmark

Written by Denis Stadler on . Posted in Personal Thoughts

When I was a child I used to listen to an old vinyl having recorded stories written by Hans Christian Andersen. Coincidence or not my first project as a contractor was in Svendborg, Denmark less than 50 km away from Andersen’s home town.

My mission here was to do a Sales Force Automation project based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.

I had a very pleasant time and what I can say is that the city really deserves a visit: a very calm blue sea with fairy-tale houses.
