H&P increases personnel
In October of the past year, we already hired a new programmer, namely Markus Poellmann. He mainly cares for StormC, and also works on AmigaWriter. At the beginning of 2000, a new co-worker was found, Ute Gottschalk, who takes care of accounting and datatyping. Stefan Robl has just finished a practical period for his computer studies, in which he created a new and portable version of StormRexx. At the beginning of September, Alexander Bramm and Simon Neumann brought two new co-workers. Their main concern is support, and managing of new projects.

06. September 2000:
Further co-workers wanted
For proof-reading of our website texts, press releases and manuals we are looking for an additional English native speaker. A good knowledge of English grammar etc. is essential.
Surprisingly we already got about 18 applications, but we only need one or two people to help on this. Thank you very much. more
