Welcome to my web site!
Hello... I am Mirko Raner and http://raner.ws is my
personal web site.
Here you will find information about me and the things I am interested
in. You are also encouraged to have a look at my
bookcrossing.com bookshelf or
visit me at
In case you are an old school buddy of mine you might also want to check out my profile
pages at stayfriends.de.

In the photo gallery you will find selected
pictures of my past travels, trips and projects. More recent photo albums
can be found at photos.raner.ws.
Most of the content of http://raner.ws is written in English. However,
there are also some older documents that are only available in German,
which is my native language. Eventually, I would like to offer every
page in English, German, French and Spanish, but it will probably
take a while until that goal is reached...
Please also keep in mind that - like many other web sites out there -
http://raner.ws is always somehow under construction. If you are
experiencing trouble viewing the pages or if you find a dead link,
please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
