In an attempt to keep meta information as short as possible and leave more room for content, I’ve renamed my Twitter account to 24z. You don’t have to do anything. If you followed me @ralfrottmann before, you keep on following @24z automatically. My “old” account is still there so that links in some older posts […]

(You might want to follow me on twitter for my Microblogging updates!)  The recent weeks have been like a roller coaster ride! While the global economic situation is not exactly ideal to jump into a new venture, bootstrapping GrandCentrix has been so much fun so far. I’ve been talking a bit about how easy it […]

Annemarie Eilfeld performs Purple Rain

In the 6th “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” theme show (the German version of Pop Idol) Annemarie Eilfeld performed Purple Rain. While the official jury did not like it – most likely because Annemarie’s raising popularity increasingly endangers main juror Dieter Bohlen’s favorite participant – the German audience voted pro Annemarie. You might want to listen […]

Just a quick note: I love bootstrapping a start-up in 2009. All the routine tasks have just gotten so easy.

Last night, the world’s best web hosting company has moved the servers that run 24100.net to a new data center. Readers might have experienced a roughly 60 minute downtime. I’ve got to admit that domainFACTORY did tell me about it 14 days in advance and I simply forgot to proactively tell you. I’m sorry. Well, […]

I’ve just returned from Berlin, where I’ve been attending Call Center World 2009. This was my tenth-or-so show and very likely my last one. A privilege of not being directly involved business-wise anymore this year allowed me to take a closer look of what the others do and have to offer. During all the past […]

Well, the title says it all. I love Alltop.com as it gives immediate access to the most relevant content by categories. The mobile version does, however, need a search bar. Scrolling through 1000s of categories is not even fun on a touchy iPhone! :-) Mobile Blogging from here. Tweet Well, the title says it all. […]
