The World's End - Intro

Who decided to make The World's End a movie?


The World's End is the lastest movie in a trilogy that includes Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007) and now six years later The World's End. It will be in Theaters on August 28th, 2013.

But as you probably have already figured out, this page has not much to do with the movie other than it got you here reading this text. This website has been in existence since 2002. Sometimes in the late nineties I visited Scotland on a four week bike tour with my girlfriend during the sommer months. We took a ferry from Hamburg, Germany to Newcastle and then used the train system to get to Glasgow. From there, we peddled our way through Scottland and also stopped in Edinburgh and the artwork on the outside of The World's End Pub just impressed me. I found a picture of the pub here

In 1999 I moved from Germany to the United States of America and sometime in 2002 I purchased the domain theworldsend.com and theworldsend.net. I use it for IT related topics, and the little few php scripts I wrote. The visitor counter on my site has turned over many times, so how many people visited the page before is everybodiey guess.

If computers isn't your thing, you might just want to look and see if you find a better website that talks about The World's End movie with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. I will watch it when it comes out, but the last movie, i.e. Hot Fuzz wasn't a block buster in the US, so let's hope this one does much better. I like the title :).

So, if for some reason you came here to actually look at my old IT related page that has a few php scripts and allows you to ping and traceroute to hosts on the internet for the last +10 years, click here

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
