I’ve taken a look into the archive folder of my hard disk and found the very first version of Clickomania. And the file dates of those resources tell me: The tenth birthday of my game is ahead. I started at the end of December 1997 to program the game. I have been thinking how to celebrate this moment. For all intents and purposes, I wanted to do a new version. But alas, software development is terribly time-consuming and I already have a lot of duties scheduled for the days ahead. The anniversary version will have to wait.
I don’t do a new version right now, but I do something else. Because, after ten years, it occurred to me that this is finally the moment to reveal the last and biggest secret about Clickomania. It’s shameful, but after a decade, the time is ripe for a confession of the extent of that one I am about to give.

I sometimes do egosurfing. That’s why it occurred to me to look for blogs called “Clickomania”. And, surprisingly enough, there are four (4) Clickomania blogs listed on Technorati. This blog here, the one you are currently reading, shows up twice. Which is overstated, even from my point of view – and I am the one who voted as “fan” for his own blog. Yes, I have to make the embarrassing confession, that the “fan vote” for clickomania.ch is from me. Don’t say it loud… I know, it’s a pitiful thing to do…
Anyway, still there are two other Clickomania blogs not linked in any way to mine – which will be of topmost interest for my laywers. No, don’t worry, I’m not the kind of guy who let laywers loose off the leash on every occasion. But of course I am courious who is blogging under the heading of “Clickomania”.
“For youu.” is the blog from Deborah. There are poems, pictures and four love songs. And I feel kind of like an intruder, because all seems private. And I fail to see the Clickomania context. Anyway, the photos are nice. And a little discusting (P1000956.jpg — yucky!).
“The hazy image of my world through the lens of w700i” is the topic of the other blog. The w700i is a mobile phone. So, clickomania probably means that the blogger loves to take a lot of (wiggly and blurred) pictures with his mobile. The blogger is actually a woman. Aditi Mallya is her name and she’s from India. Nice pictures, after all, from a totally strange world (again, from my point of view).
Sad but true – there are different meanings to Clickomania and mine will not rule the world… what a pity!
This page gets a new look, a flashy web 2.0 appearance and a new blog on the main page. Here, you can read the news about Clickomania and all the things that cross my mind. Some of the articles will be in English, most of them in German, and you’ll see some of my pictures.
Es ist nicht zu übersehen: Diese Website macht eine Wandlung durch und metamorphiert (oder metamorphoriert?) zu einer schicken Web zwonull-Seite. Die statischen Seiten sind noch nicht ganz passé: Es gibt natürlich weiterhin Clickomania, das Spiel, zum Download und auch meine anderen Anwendungen zum Download: Bitte bedient euch beim Menü «Links», das etwas paradoxerweise auf der rechten Seite zu finden ist.
Meine neue Seite bietet an dieser Stelle einen Blog, auf dem ich mich zu diesem oder jenem Thema auslasse, Bilder zeige und alle die Dinge tue, die mir dann einfallen, sobald ich damit anfange… oder so.
