And a side note about copyright infringement: This is a private and non-commercial weblog. I seldom do present my books here, but that's it; no advertisements which I get money from, no webshop. I will not deliberately link to sites with copyright infringements.
Since the OLG Hamburg and the EuGH ballpoint pen pushers act in their parallel universe, I will do my best to check the contents of websites to which I am linking to, for copyright infringements. Yet this is quite futile since link target contents change often, and even the OLG itself is said not to have guaranteed in writing that all their own links would not at all point to sources with possible aforesaid infringements. Which is no wonder since near-100% safe checking would be a fulltime job which I think no sane living being can possibly fulfill.

Working time calcualator sheet for Excel/OpenOffice

Especially if you are a freelancer who has to calculate the working time for the invoice, or an employee with flexible times, you might want to have a simple spreadsheet where you can just type in

datetopicsBegin (HH:MM)End (HH:MM)(minus) break (HH:MM)Total working time of the day (decimal)

It turned out that this wasn't as easy and straightforward as I thought. In fact it was hard to find such a spreadsheet; just some formulars spread over the web.

So, I made one myself some years ago. The sheet is made with OpenOffice for Mac and converted for Excel. You might include a simple multiplication of the total time with your hourly wage. You are welcome to suggest enhancements or report errors, of course.

⇒ for openOffice as ods ⇒ for Word as .xls

Side note: Use at your own risk, of course. No guarantees whatsoever. Functionality of the Excel sheet cannot be guaranteed.

Blood of Heroes/Salute of the Jugger film analysis / behind the scenes

05 Jugger Why is Jugger played with a dog skull in the movie? What does the term mean, actually? Is Jugger gear weapons?

Now we get answers. Inspired by Rob Ager and others, I published a "Behind the scenes" clip on the movie that is responsible for Jugger, including some background information the screenwriter and director David Webb Peoples gave him when I worked on my first Jugger book twelve years ago.
