Ask a Ninja

Ask a ninja is something someone sended to me, while I was waiting bored in the waiting room to get in the battle. It is a very funny page about a ninja that answers questions through videos, sometimes he gives just simple answers ("I'm a ninja!") or just keeps on talking and can't even stop with it. Couldn't stop laughing while watching those episodes, thought I just have seen 3 episodes, it is simply grandiose and I would say a must seen for everyone who likes to laugh as much as I do :)

21st Century Warfare

Many of you guys know that I like to play video games, when you think that is something for kids, you maybe be right, but yes mom, I always going to play video games (always wanted to say this!). Several years ago I read a post on a random site about a tournament for Battlefield 1942 Mod - Desert Combat called 21st Century Warfare, that was about playing in a organist and planned basis. It was so interessting that I just had to sign up. When I went on the teamspeak server and got my rank as a private, my General of the Division I belonged to came up and explained everything to me. At the beginning it felt too military and far away from what I expected. But then I found out that this more out of fun and a little bit of a roleplay of some people, and that was okay to me. In a normal situation, or in a training, the people there just talked to me normal as anyone else, just during battle they had their roleplay on, what always fitted into the game. Thought, back then I was too young to stay up that long, because they played at US times in the late afternoon and evening times, I couldn't play on their training times nor battles. Several years ago, in the year 2004, old enough to decide what is good for himself, I decided with a friend to sign up again and it was just great. We got a warm welcome and had a great time beeing there, it was just the nicest and most organizest community of gamers (of all ages! from 14 to 50) that I had ever seen, even with a lot of nationlaty you could think of, mainly european and american of course. Now I had a half year break from it, to get along in the university and stuff, and it is just great to be back again. I'm now in a division from the coalition (the other side), and most of the "old" members know me as an enemy, thought, they gave me warm welcome. Even the general from this division is one of my old generals under I served as a captain for the airforce (the highest ranked person normally of a company). It was a nice coincedence, and is always good for me, to have someone who knows how I work when I'm new somewhere. Now I'm member of the 4th Battalion Highlanders [4BH] in the company Royal Air Force (RAF) and work as a fixed-wing pilot. When you wanna join me in the battle, no problem, you just need Battlefield 2, and thats it (no fee, no hidden costs).

Radio 20-04-06

Better late than never, as we say over here. So, I just wanted to post the list from my last show. Thought, I couldn't go on air the last week, but I simply hadn't the time to go on air, I'm trying to go on air tomorrow before the quiz, so you guys are all warmed up for it, but we see about that.

so here it is, and sorry to everyone who waited and didn't get any respond from me, I was simply not able to go on air. If you have any ideas or wishes for my show, you can e-mail me anytime or write it here in the comments, I'm always happy for suggestions.

First Quizshow ever

Easter is finally over and so is my freetime. I'm sorry I didn't post anything, but I didn't felt like posting. So, to say it in a few words, the thursday music show was okay all in all, the songs had been more quiet all in all, maybe the people are all feeling like depressiv right now. I can't blame them, I'm happy about every hour of sunshine, but most of the time it is raining heavily. Thats why I always push my listeners to wish for some happy songs, so they also get a better mood, thought some of them are taking it too personally and take it more as a critic at their song wishes, but that was never my intention to critizies anyone. What I have played that thursday can be seen here.

So, sunday was a pretty special day for me, it was easter (good food) and at the evening was my first quizshow ever. Just like last week I did the warmup for the show, for something like one and a half hour. I got some questions with answers from Akina, which helped me a lot, thank you for that in that manner. I couldn't have done it without Juby thought, she was helping me out the whole time, and without her it would have been a failure for sure, so thank you thank you thank you Juby =) The questions and answers can be found here (german). I would do it anytime again, it was real fun and a nice experience. Of course, the winner of the quiz didn't just get some virtuall kisses, he even won something, but what? Thats something we can't tell you, 'cause we have a special quizevent running at the moment. Since last week we are having a quiz marathon every sunday evening. The winner of each quiz can choose one out of 7 prices, that include something big and something small (for example a book + coupon). So he never knows what he gets until he has it in his own hands. 2 prices are already gone, 5 left, and nobodoy can tell what in the other packages is. More infos here (german) and the playlist from sunday here.

long loud sunday

Yeah, this evening was pretty interessting. I moderated the warmup show for the quiz and right after it. It is always quite amazing how much people are interessted in my show, thank you to all those who listen to it, I really appreciate it. Thought, it is getting quite tough to always bring new music in my playlist, I guess I still did a good job. But as always, my show lives from the song wishes, most listeners don't realize it, but I'm just a little helper, they are creating the real show, if they post enough music wishes of course. So, the more listeners, the better show should get, so tune in, you know where to find me in ICQ and YIM =)

As alway you find the playlist here (part 1) and here (part 2). Critics, complains and ideas are always welcome, either as a comment or in a private mail. Picture found here.

Red 5 ready!

Some of you know that I really like to play videogames and stuff like that. Thought, I'm often playing firt-person-shooter, I don't really like em that much. At least not as much as I love Space-shooter ;) Since Star Wars I'm amazed from any kind of space-simulation that is out there. My first games of that kind had been, of course, "SW Rebel Strikes" I and II, and shortly after that "SW X-Wing" and after that one my FIRST real game that I bought, "SW X-Wing vs. Tie-Fighter". You can't imagine how much time I spend on them. Those hadn't been the only games of course! I know almost all of them, the "Wing Commander" series (one of my very favs.), Freespace Series, Decent, Freelancer and of course the X-trilogy (that always had been too complex, but I just couldn't stop trying to master it, still working on X³...). I hope I didn't miss any real big Hit, but listing all here would be quite too much. At the moment I'm a beta-tester for one new hope to revive the space-sim genre, unfornattly my contract forbids me to talk about it or even allows me to tell you what name it has. My hope is that I find enough bugs so the master will be better than this beta.

Rock around the clock

I just finished my show on the internet radio, and I thought it would be a nice idea to put the playlist I played that evning online from now on, so everybody can see what I played. Or you maybe heared a song but don't know its name? From now on I will make a short summary of my shows in plane words with the playlist at the end.

This evening was quite incredible, I had an incredible show with a lot of new listeners with a lot of good wishes, what always brings the show to a high level. Maybe I even found some new family listeners. Today I decided to find another spot in the week where I can broadcast, a lot of people ask me why I just play once a week. So, now you got me. I don't when for the time being, but maybe sunday evening, at 5 p.m. (GMT+1), right before the quiz show.

The playlist can be found here.

Big event in Solingen

Yeah, even my little hometown Solingen is a place where partys and festivals take place. Just like the jubilee dance gala from one of the biggest dance centers here in Solingen, this weekend. The whole theater hall was filled up with people, dressed in their best clothes with a live orchestra. Allmost every teenager you ask around here, is or had been in this dance center, when he was interessted in learning how to dance or getting in touch with girls in a smooth way.

I never took the chance to really learn how to dance, I was always in a sportclub where I had to fight or play in a team, felt more comfortable that way ;) But my bro was one of the people who were dancing in this theater hall, he looked so much like an adult in his dress, I sometimes forget that we are no kids anymore...

Finnally it's done

Today was my last exam for this term, and I really can say, all those emotions I kept away for so long just jump out now and I have to watch out that I don't hurt anybody I like, that I don't hurt anybody at all.
If you hold your feelings back for such a long time, they really can overwhelm you. I'm pretty lucky that I'm pretty calm inside and normally bark but don't bite ;) I will try to have some fun in the next time and calm down a bit, maybe working on getting a better half? who knows...
Next week the next term begins already, new term, new lets see what it brings me this time.

The trick is to keep breathing

The past days were always the same, sitting in the university, learning for my exams. At the end you never know what you did with all the time learning all that crap, when you don't know what all those questions mean in the first place, it is disgusting. But maybe that is the way it has to be, I don't know my results yet, still waiting for them. The funny thing is, when you sit there with your colleges, you also talk about other stuff, you even learn for the school of life. People come along, you never seen before, involving you in a conversation that you pretty much enjoy, a face that maybe let you forget about all the trouble you have right now, being in your own little world. I think my past days were I worked pretty hard, wasn't wasted, even if I failed my exams, because I also learned something about life...more than I can actually put in words.
Next week my second term begins, I will see where this leads me to, hopefully not where this picture came of the last one in the cafeteria, isn't that much of a good feeling =)

Monday, March 27, 2006


God, I guess I should be in bed but I felt like writting down what happend so far. As you may noticed, I didn't get the chance to write a lot in the past days, thats just because I was learning for my exams, exspecially for mathematics. The funny thing is, I will write to exams this week. But don't feel pitty for me, it is my own fault, and I surely know that now. I had the chance to graduate in one of the mathematic course a half year ago, but I failed just because I was to lazy to learn for real. Thought, I should have learned for while the lectures were on going, still I was too lazy. We will see where this leads me to, I'm happy when graduate both of them, it would be at least something.
Wish me good luck, I really need it. I still don't have a clue how to graduate in the exam for friday, it is about information technologys, I have to rely on my given knowledge...

All hands on deck!

Today I had the pleasure (again) to go to examination for the Bundeswehr, and had to go through the same sh** like last time, with the result that I have to come back next year the moment I'm physically not able to go there, because I haven't started my training yet, I'm not half as fit as I used to be. I really would like to be an Officer, study in a military university in a much faster and compressed way with a very good chance to get a good occupation even after my service. Who knows, I have one year now to get in a good shape, time will tell if I'm suited for the Bundeswehr or not.
Isn't it a dream of every boy to be a soldier?^^ At least the uniform is impressing everybody, exspecially the girls ;D

I proudly present... virtual family. We are not like any ordinary family, we are NOT ordinary at all. Thought we don't share the same blood, neither are we from the same country.

My sister is a gifted singer and a naturally good person. Her name is petlover4lif aka Sam. Thought I can't share as much time with her as I liked to, I do really like her, I have the feeling like we two don't need to talk like all the time and have to be ashamed when someone just shows up after serveral months^^ There is somehow somekind of natural harmony that we both have, we quickly find topics to talk about and know how to waste our time ;)
Let me put it in plain honest words: I love you my sister, stay away from danger and don't get in any trouble, your big bro could get mad about it =)

And finnally, my mother gorgeoux aka Mirona, one of the most interessting persons I ever talked to in my life, plus one of the wisest persons I know. Just like my sister, I don't feel any shame when I can't talk to her for a while, because when I can talk to her it is always something special, and I think thats the way it is meant to be =) She always has a good advice for me if I think the whole world is falling down on me. In plain but very honest words: Thought we are not from the same blood you are the best mom any son or daugther could wish for. I hope that when you get your own kids (if the time comes^^) that they do know how lucky they are =)

I hope I don't sound too emotional, but I guess I'm just getting older, so have have mercy with a young old man ;D

You as a mayfly

You may find me now in the jungle now. What? Why in the jungle? Because I'm living now as a mayfly here. Giving it a thought, being a mayfly in the jungle, what would it be? I guess it would be something like no one ever expierenced before.
Here your mayfly just lives for 24 hours, but at least for the time being, they have some interessting lifestyle visions of a lot of different people. Have look at it, you may find me in that croud ;)

crazy weekend

Even thought its over I have to think what had happend then. We were just returning from shopping from Duesseldorf, on this snowy saturday evening. I was driving the car, my mother and brother sitting in the back, with nothing special in mind when suddendly this traffic jam infront of us appeared from no where. The funny thing was, that this street was no big street where serveral streets come together, it was just a simple street in the industril area. It was snowing a little bit, and it was pretty dark already, when those cars just couldn't drive up that hill...I couldn't tell why, until I drove just a little bit on that little hill and slipped a little bit to the side, it was undoubtly ice. All streets in my town and around them were frozen. A situation that in my area just happens just every 50 years.
So I tryed to drive up that hill, but as hard as I tryed I couldn't get this car drive in the right direction. I took me some time to figure out that I had to accelerate very slowly and hold a certain speed, something between 10 and 20 km/h. The problem was, that you had do keep on driving to have a controlable drive, so everytime we had to stop for a red traffic sign, there was a chance that we spin around if you gave to much power to the paddle.
The result was, we came home without a scratch after driving for about something less than an hour for a 10 minute way. Thought my veins were running full of adrenaline, I felt just like a very intensive situation, a very long intensive far my biggest challenge in handling a car^^

Sitting waiting wishing

...that you finnally are the next one in line. I don't think anyone likes waiting rooms, exspecially when you have to go to the doctor. Thursday was just one of those days. I just needed a medicine that I have to take, because I have a inherited some minor disfunctions, but nothing very serious. Just something that can be a problem for me in my further life, if I don't react to it right now.
Anyway, I was there, sitting there for a full hour, and my eyes always went from one other patient to the other, trying to think about what kind of problem they have. You think that sounds stupid? You might be right, but somehow reading those magazines about "high society" or those normal magazines about diseases just drive me crazy. I don't wanna feel that old already to think about what diseases I could have when I don't this and that...nobody is meant to live forever, anyway. What also is something that is always funny to see, is that how different the decoration of those rooms are, or even how the office/investigation area looks like. My doc has a lot of Star Trek stuff in his office everywhere on the wall or as a picture...

One other funny thing is, everytime when you are finnally the next in line, you still have to wait for another 10 minutes for the doc to show up. It is just on of those little phenomenons in life that I might never understand...

Music in the radio

I have a little hobby that I take with me since I started accedently. It is moderating a radio on the internet. I startet somehow around 2000-2001, when somekind of a new provider for radios just showed off. It was pretty new, the whole idea was a sensation. You could register for free at the beginning and broadcast for a limited amount of people (I guess it was 16) and limited quality (max 64kbps). Friends started to listen to it and spreaded it around the net, people started to recognize me for a while. The day came and the whole radio became a money thing, you couldn't send private for your friends, because then you would have a pirat channel, these days you have to pay here for GEMA and stuff like that (when you send from germany) to have a real internet radio. So, I came to the point where I couldn't go on with my radio on my very own. I looked for a good radio crew I could hook up with, but most of those radios were just too unreal and with too many stupified rules. I remember one or 2 went inactive when I left and others followed.
But for the first time in my life now, I have a good radio crew I hooked up with, and I have to say it was the best choice I made so far (when it comes to internet radios). I have one show where I broadcast at least once a week every thursday. It is a simple wishbox show with moderation with myself, but the special thing about it is, that the listeners create the radio with their wishes and greetings, so it doesn't feel so distanted like a normal radio where they talk about people who are far away^^

maybe you wanna tune in? contact me in ICQ or YIM

fet up with physics

Yesterday I had my final exam in physics bridging course, so I can study on in the university in Wuppertal. It wasn't that easy, and I didn't learned that much for the exam as I generally do. It is kinda weird if you know you have to learn but can't bring yourself to the point of doing so. Anyway, I was able to work on 4 of 6 exercise, I thought that was quite okay, so I at least have a chance to get away with that, noone will know how many points I have when I passed...but then I took a look on the website of that creature, that is running that course, and old professor who is simply bored. He had a short comment about how one of the exercises had been worked on in most of students. It was just like he was talking really down on me, even thought he didn't talked about someone specific. He has some way of talking that is making you feel like you are the worst scum that is crossing his way and are just not meant to sit at all in this course. Thank god, there are not too many people like this there. I don't like it if someone is judging you before he really knows you, or doesn't even try to understand your situation, especially when it isn't none of his buisness.

Anyway, I will see where that brings me. If I pass this one, I just have to pass to more in math and english (okay, I will have to work on my gramma a bit, it kinda sucks lately)
Today I started at the math course, 2 courses in a row would be great, more time for my other exams. Next week I have to write another physics exam (that one is at least multiple choice ;D), don't know how I can win that one, I'm simply not good enough for physics :)

Hiho family, friends and others =)

Hi people, I finnally made it and started a own blog, where I will talk about all the nonsense crap that comes to my mind and just waits to be shouted out^^

It is even so much, that I have noe clue where to start at...maybe I just talk about myself.
You may have realizied that my nick is daColt, but my friends call me criz (spoken just like Chris), I'm a german and studying Information technology. My hobbiess are Badminton, Videogames, Movies, going On Air on the radio and just having a real good time.
In my freetime I try to hang around with my friends or play videogames, just like Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory for the moment. Every week I have at least one radio show on thursday at 9 o'clock p.m. (GMT+1). I normally just speak german on it, but I could maybe also moderate it in english, if enough people ask for it or as a little special ;D
All in all, I'm noone who trys to be the freakin best in everything, I rather try to just do my best and get what I earn for what I have done. I'm no exception to rule and thats fine with me =)

so whats next? We will see, there will be enough posts in the future^^
