After almost 5 months I have finally found some time to write another entry into this news section:
First of all, let me wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2009!
I plan to continue with my PhD studies in Bratislava as an external student. My first exams will take place in January 2009. If everything goes well I hope to graduate in or before 2014, the latest deadline would be 2015.
Regarding stamps, I received and collected about some hundreds, but I did not have enough time to scan and upload them. It is in my interest to work on this page and fulfill all of my plans (I will add a list later on (: ).
26. Jul 2008
Good news everyone. :) I have 3 new contributors and plan to add their stamps before end of August. Meanwhile, I am adding stamps from Sweedie that I have scanned in the last months. I already possess over 10,000 different stamps and consider 15,000 to be my new benchmark.
Due to the fact that I work 24/7 I am not able to fully devote my time to this webpage. If there is someone outside who wants to help me, do not hesitate to contact me.

Hello everyone. After approximately 3 weeks I managed to enter new stamps into my database. There was a lot of work to do in the meantime and I coud not solely focus on this webpage. I have one new contributor whose stamps I will upload in the following days, there are still more than 1,000 stamps in queue.
One more thing to write about: When I finish uploading the stamps I have in my queue I will add search criteria and start creating own pages for several stamps. I am still on the search for some voluntary helpers and contributors.

I decided to redesign the news page and create one gif picture instead of posting 10 separate jpg screenshots of our myminicity :)

Kangaroo stamp 2008 In October 2007, the Kangaroo organizers had a meeting in Graz, Austria. For this special occasion a stamp has been produced showing the Grazer Schloßberg Clock Tower and the symbol of the Contest - a Kangaroo.
The stamp itself has a value of € 0.55 and can be used as a normal poststamp in Austria.
29. Nov 2007
6,000th stamp added. I have approximately 1,500 to go until I finish scanning them.
Unfortunately, I have been busy due to some work on other projects (Kangaroo of Mathematics 2008) and could not continue working on this webpage. Nevertheless, I appreciate all help from outside.
25. Oct 2007
I have scanned some new stamps and finished adding topics (next step will be to add subtopics and so on). Besides, the Embassy of Peru suggested creating a page with links to all postal services. I consider this to be a good idea and created THIS LIST. Please, if you know of any other links, send them to me.

Today I read an interesting quote in Benjamin Graham's book "The Intelligent Investor", just wanted to share it with all of you:
Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Maybe I will create a section with quotes I like anyway, but there is still so much work to do. Besides, I received new albums for my 23rd brithday (: There will be enough to scan in the upcoming months.
26. Sep 2007
Some weeks ago, I received a nice picture of a coined letter. Wonder if it was delivered or not. I hope that you will enjoy this picture as much as I did (:

Hello again! Last week, my girlfriend and me spent a nice time in Prague and Brussels. I did not buy any stamps but collected some photos that I would like to use for my website as accompanying pictures to stamps.
18. Sep 2007
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who helped me with this homepage, to every contributor you can find HERE. Please, be aware that I treat all stamps with the respect they deserve.
30. Aug 2007
If you find a stamp where the year is missing, or a stamp scanned twice, please contact me via email (please, specify the stamp_id number to faciliate my search). I will in turn try to correct it. By the way, I have already set about 26.57% of all stamps in relation, added year of issue to 32.30% and a topic to 59.93%.
20. Aug 2007
The menu tree works (:. I have managed to add topic IDs to more than 1,000 stamps recently (represent about 20% of all pictures). I estimate that it will take me another 2-3 weeks to finish the topics and continue adding information (year, value, ...) about certain stamps. Nevertheless, I will continue working on my page. Besides, I will create one page for each stamp, would like to start with 10 pages per day (1.5 years in total). So, what will come first? Children, or a finished webpage (:
Oh yes, I will receive a banner for the top of this page from a friend of mine (designed in flash). His work can be read (in Slovak) at - notebook reviews. Therefore I changed the version number from 1.x to 2.0.
11. Aug 2007
A new menu tree for topics has been implemented. I hope to continue with grouping several stamp series together. Next steps will be: create a connection to Wikipedia for information about countries. Afterwards I would like to create a page for every stamp I have. This will take years... or? (: Maybe some volunteers will appear. And of course, language versions will be online this year, too.

03. Aug 2007
Still working on this page (a final version does not in fact exist). Nevertheless, thanks to Sweedie and Woo I reached the 5,000 limit and hope to have more than 6,000 by the end of 2007.
19. Jul 2007
OK (: So... After 1 year I collected some 1000+ new stamps and have finally received my master degree in economics at Vienna's University of Economics and Business Administration. A friend of mine will help me to add some flash elements to this page (banner, stamps overview).
17. May 2007
Hallo everybody!
I got into a time lag because of all the work I had to do. Nevertheless, I hope that the country section works properly. If you switch to another language, a script should automatically look for the corresponding Wikipedia page. In case there is no infobox, it will jump back to the English version.
By the way, I received over 700 stamps from Sweedie. Sooner or later the 10,000 mark total or 5,000 mark different will fall (:
14. Apr 2007
New country: Indonesia, it is the 109th country in my collection.

13. Apr 2007
Friday the 13th! (:
Ok, 4,000+ stamps already available, I do not know when I will have 5,000. I should receive some new contributions in the upcoming weeks, thus slowly approaching this magical number. By the way, I am stil working on the topic and country sections, they WILL be available this month!
15. Mar 2007
Ok ladies and gentlemen, next step is done. I have added a forum where I hope you will discuss topics related to stamps, albums, and philatelic stuff.
By now, after 6 months (:, there have been some people mentioning my page without receiving its address from me. Honestly, I felt happy about it. Next steps are to scan another 100-200 stamps I have (breach the 4,000-hurdle) and continue working on my master thesis...
27. Feb 2007
Contributors updated, now you can see a photo in case that the contributor had provided me with one.
I hope to be able to work on this webpage continuously. In the meantime, I welcome every support you can provide me with (in case you want to help).
