Ziele der GerManiaConnection sind:

  • Über die deutschsprachigen Länder ehrlich und objektiv zu berichten (in Foren und Beiträgen)
  • Das allgemeine Bild dieser Länder außerhalb deren Grenzen zurecht zu rücken.
  • Kontakt zwischen deutschsprechenden Mitgliedern mit gemeinsamen Interessen und Wohngegenden herzustellen
  • Ansprechpartner für besuchende H2G2-ler, die nach D/A/CH reisen wollen oder dort wohnen werden


The aims of the GerManiaConnection are:

  • to report honestly and objectively on the German speaking countries in forums and entries
  • To correct the unfavourable picture generally perpetuated outside these countries
  • To create contact between German speaking researchers with similar interests or who live near each other
  • To provide information and contact with local Germans/Austrians/Swiss for other H2G2 researchers going on holiday or moving to the area

LATEST UPDATE 7 DECEMBER 2000. Sorry folks - will soon get around to updating all this. Please let me know any alterations you want made. :-). It seems that some members aren't coming back - I had been holding out, just in case.

Die Erde, 26. November 2000.
So - hier haben wir die neue Startseite der GerManiaConnection. Seit dem letzten Update sind in Who's Who 19 neue Mitglieder entdeckt worden, und in Who was Who haben wir 33 neue Namen hinzugefügt. Diese Neuerung ist an alle bekanntgegeben, die sich in der "Who's Who" - Liste befinden. Bitte ändert Eure Links und Bookmarks, da Nachrichten jetzt auf dieser Seite erscheinen werden, die bisherige Seite ist "nur" noch "Who's Who".


This is the new Front Page for the GerMania Connection, as of 26 November 2000. Since the last update we have added 19 Researchers to Who's Who and 33 to Who was Who. Everybody in the "Who's Who" list has received notice of this new page. Please correct any links or bookmarks you may have made to the previous front page. This will now continue solely as the Who's Who page.


Eine e-group ist eingerichtet worden. Sehr unkompliziert und privat (na ja..). Hier kann sich der harte Kern treffen und vor allem, e-mails an alle oder einzelne verschicken. Diese Maßnahme habe ich ergriffen, da ein Computer-Absturz bei mir die Schwächen eines e-mail-Verkehrs mit selbsterstellten Verteilern aufgezeigt hat.

Bitte den Hinweisen bei "Subscribe" folgen und beitreten!


We now have an e-group for the GerManiaConnection. Until now, the "insiders" have e-mailed each other with a common distribution list, but I found this a relatively unsafe system, especially as all my e-mails got lost in a crash.
