Proud to be on the advisory board for Conteneo. Created a video that shows how easy it is to set up a Speed Boat Idea Engine forum. Enjoy!

Looking for a place to get away in the Black Forest? Lovingly kept up to date Black Forest farm house in Lauterbach/Sulzbach. If you are looking for a couple of days to relax and recharge, this is the place.. Free Wifi so you are able to stay connected, just in case :-)   
Fehrenbacherhof 1, 78730 Lauterbach
