Yeah, I'm still alive... but it's been a long time, I apologize.
I recently participated in the German My Opera contest about writing something for their weblog. So I did. My blog post is about this awesome feature called "Google Link". If you are able to read German, check it out: Komfortabler Umzug dank Opera Link
Well, and if you don't: Just watch the video below. It explains everything in 50 seconds. Well invested 50 seconds, of course
PS: I just uploaded my profile picture... a bit juicier, don't you think so?

To come straight to the point: Unfortunately I did not win the Opera contest (see below). But I did win new contacts, gain experiences and especially improve my writing skills (I hope you may benefit from that in future
So all in all it was worth spending my time on the articles I've written for and about Opera. Today Angus from Opera Software told me on the phone about the decision they've made. Even though it's not the answer I wished to hear, I am glad to finally know the answer (to life, the universe, and everything
). Waiting can be terrible - especially when you're as unpatient as I am.
At this point I'd like to thank Angus, Kei and everybody else from Opera Software for giving me this chance and choosing me for one of the three finalists. For me it's a huge success, especially when I consider the fact that the other two finalists are both native speakers instead of me (German).
Special thanks goes to Alex from Opera Software for helping and encouraging me during the contest. Thank you!
The last few days was like holding my breath. But now I can breathe again. The next days and weeks I'll use my breath to show you new pictures of the East Sea. Therefore: Stay juiced!
PS: Thanks to all of you who commented and voted my article - you're great!

First of all, thanks to all of you, who voted for my article last time! The reason for this short entry is just to tell you two things:
1. I'm participating in the Opera Internship Competition and would love to win this competition, since I also study online-journalism in Germany and seriously want to go abroad again after 1 1/2 years in Indonesia and South Korea. And because I love Opera, this would be THE perfect internship for me.
2. If you like my article The Top Ten Best Places to use Opera
, please add it to your favorites. But make sure you have to add the post to vote for it, NOT my blog
(which you can do as well, of course - but doesn't count for the competition).
3. Thanks to all of you who vote for my article. But first of all, enjoy reading it:

10. ON THE TOILET:
Opera Turbo makes everything faster and smoother. It literally “boosts slow connection speeds”
.9. ON AN AIRPLANE: Automated Crash Reporting
makes everything more secure. If we are going to die, we can at least tell Opera why.8. IN THE JUNGLE:
Fight wild animals
with the ultimate answer defense: Opera Dragonfly
. With the shortcut “F8” we can continue the execution
. 7. ON THE MOON:
That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind: Opera Mobile
.6. AT THE BEACH:
With the personalized Opera we can “choose from hundreds of skins”
until we finally look
nice! 5. ON THE N SEOUL TOWER:
Definitely the best place
to see the amazing capabilities of Quick Find. People, streets, cars — Opera finds them all.4. AT A JAM SESSION:
Just start, play, and have fun
. See where it gets us and save a collection of jam sessions
.3. AT THE ZOO:
Thanks to Feed Preview
, with Opera it is 100 per cent safe to visit zoos. And the Mouse Gestures
even help us to control the animals! 2. AT THE MALL:
While women go shopping to personalize their wardrobe and choose from hundreds of items of clothing, the guys can personalize Opera
and choose from “hundreds of skins and setups” and “change the entire layout of the browser”. Shopping will never be boring again!1. AT THE PLACE WE'RE AT:
So Opera can make us happy and we can make everybody around us happy. TO SUM IT UP: MORE TOP TEN-POSTS I'VE WRITTEN AND RECOMMEND TO YOU:

Here we go again: I just blogged about Opera 10
on my German blog "JUICEDblog
" - so everyone who understands German or wants to learn it, I highly recommend reading my blog post there (including two English videos).
At this point I'd like to thank Opera Software ASA for their effort they put into the new Opera desktop browser. It was definitely worth it and I'll do whatever I can to spread the good news.
Besides blogging about the best web browser I worked out something else:
In a couple of hours I'll start a contest with three winners - unfortunately only in Germany. My Partner is Opera Software, thanks to Alex
What you have to do? Find out yourself.
That's it for today, still struggling with all my tasks I have to do. Life can be so busy. My advice for today (also for myself): Never forget to spend time with your friends. Relationships are more important than anything else and can't be bought or earned.[Update]
The contest is online now. Check it out
and feel free to participate
