I'm an system administrator always endeavoring to make better and more secure solutions and to learn new skills. The focus of my expertise is on databases - especially PostgreSQL. I also have extensive knowledge of information management with SAP Data Services and reporting with Crystal Reports as well as a basic knowledge of a couple of programming languages.

I have my B.A. in musicology and did a nature and wilderness guide's professional examination some years ago. Now I'm enjoing those skills during my spare time playing piano, listening to all kinds of music and wandering in nature with my wife. I also practise meditation and qigong, activities that have proven to be invaluable and have allowed me to see things more clearly both in my work life and elsewhere.

I'm currently studying part-time for a Master's Degree on Databases and Information Retrieval.

comment Grouping shortcuts with different parameters in Windows 7 Taskbar
Well, actually adding start to the pgAdmin-command is sufficient to close the command prompt window right away. But thanks for your help!

comment Grouping shortcuts with different parameters in Windows 7 Taskbar
Yeah I tested it already but it seemed clumsy with the opening command prompt window. Tested it again but this time adding the start command start "pgAdmin" "C:\Program Files (x86)\pgAdmin III\1.14\pgadmin3.exe" /s database1 So now it seems like a tolerable solution..

comment Grouping shortcuts with different parameters in Windows 7 Taskbar
No not really, I'm not launching the shortcuts from taskbar but from desktop (or launchy). After launch I would like to see them all under the one icon. Curiously when I launch the program with different parameters straight via command line they show up under one icon. So the problem lies in passing parameters to Windows shortcuts.
