    1.11 +First, I want to thank \person{Oliver Kurth} for writing \masqmail; I build upon his work. My second thanks goes to professor \person{Markus Sch\"affter}, my advisor. He was the one who made this thesis possible by putting faith in me and this topic. I very much enjoyed the time with him.
    1.13 +I thank \person{Christian Langbein} and professor \person{Volkmar Kese} for teaching me important lessons about structure. You are so right, it is all about: structure, structure, structure.
    1.15 +My \person{Dad} and my friend \person{Julian Forster} took time for me so I could explain various parts of the thesis to them; this was important, thanks. \person{James Stenard} was of great help in questions about the English language, thanks. \person{Roger Schietzel} double-checked all web addresses and \NAME{ISBN}s for validity, thanks for covering this bulky task.
