New Project

For a new project I am working on a editor based on Scintilla. This going to be another technotecture labs tool.

Lua SWIG binding

Finally, I can remove my old selfmade Lua bindings for TAP. This also yields a whole new possibility to port TAP to a slew of other programming languages.

Updated Markdown

My ISP did silently update PHP to version 5.1 (5.1.1 to be more specific). Apparently this breaks Markdown for PHP and therefore the page was shortly down. An update to temx is long overdue.


I am a bit stunned that people shell out USD30 per site for a simple piece of stats software. I had some code floating around and just tossed it together. Well, it will be called Trigger and enable you to de-mint your website - for free, it is going to be GPL.

As you might notice this page is already tracked by Trigger. Very simple and very flexible. Have a look at the database (on this site I am using XML but you can use any database as well).

New Publication

New publication about BenchWorks and the task of user assessment has been published:

Seichter, Hartmut and Schnabel, Marc Aurel (2005): Digital and Tangible Sensation in Proceedings of The Tenth Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2005), New Dehli, India, pp. 191-202.
