On Friday, I participated at the annual “Kleeblattlauf” organized by the institute for sports (USI) of the University of Graz. As every year, the relay race in teams of four lead us up the Rosenberg. The ascent combined with possibly this-year’s-record-breaking heat was quite exhaustive. However, our results (especially mine :-) ) were quite okay:

Finished the optimization project I’ve worked on the last few weeks: Together with Eranda Dragoti-Cela, Elisabeth Gassner, Johannes Hatzl and Bettina Klinz I created a C++ program that optimizes the configuration and punching plan of a punching machine. The machine will start to operate in a Polish factory this summer. Below are some pictures of it.

The homepage about the Styrian “Rindfleischfest” for the Chamber of Agriculture is finished and online under It’s a rather simple, but beautiful and hopefully informative PHP website presenting the schedule of the festival and various companies and organisations participating.
