Code hard – hint and more

Well and this i my approach how to solve problems. Image, when you are in a foreign country and you are trying to get the things done. Then what do you need. Right internet, a place to be and quiet in the realm..   J. OK at first the quiet you will only find at home. That’s the first point. Then you turn on the internet and you find, well nothing. You find no wireless and you find no mobility. You can not use your data roamin package, because on the one hand you haven`t got one and on the other hand it would be to expensive to use it all the time.
So what do you do.. You go to the university and log in with your account. After a few days this ia also boaring, because you can`t use your flat like you want. You know programming , coding and all of those things are better when you are naked. Because you code hard and you know it J

Well I never tried to do this in a coffee shop or something in that way. First of all I am not in Amsterdam and second am not an so called east german who loves the naturism

Ok bring it to the point and to say it clear I need Internet at home. So I ordered and wireless adapter with an external antenna. To improve the reach of the wireless adapter I adapted the card and added an additional antenna and well.. here is it I have internet and can use the university network at home. J Well thanks to the city of Coimbra that the faculties are scattered all over the town.

Now I can code at home and will present the results as soon as possible. Code hard 🙂

Coimbra #Portugal #Coimbra

I know some of you are missing beautiful pictures. But how should I do that. But well I tried. Here is my university. I am part of a history that lasts until now about 725 years. Maybe I can add my part of this history and prove the people right, so that they will never forget some of us. This is a challenge we have to work on. And to be honest I don`t know how it will be after this year abroad. And I am also not sure, what will be after this. Is my life going better will I get all I dream about. And what will my dreams be? I don`t know, the only thing I know is. That I am living in a time where big changes are might come and so all I have to do is use the opportunity and do the best. Take all the good things with me and leave the bad stuff behind. That is, or would be my new approach to life.

Gamedeveloping!

Have you ever thought about the HOMO LUDENS. Never heard ? Well HOMO LUDENS is basically the name of a book written by the dutch author Johann Huazinga((http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johan_Huizinga)) in 1939. The key facts of the books are that people are made for playing,maybe not the kind of play like our kids do, or I have done in the past. Play is necessary to develop the own skills to get a pretty good idea about what you are doing. When you take a look to some, lets say young dogs and if you wacht them then you realize, that they are exploring there nature and their strengths with playing. And they know basically where to stop. The same is in our nature. Huizinga is right in many ways.

Play, however, is not foolish. It lies outside the antithesis of wisdom and folly.“((In: http://art.yale.edu/file_columns/0000/1474/homo_ludens_johan_huizinga_routledge_1949_.pdf S.6. [29.02.2014].))

But I think there is a time for play and there is a time for work. And in this words, there is something wrong. You can not seperate play and work. Because not every play is a game and not ever game is important for the culture. As I heard last week. It is importand that the society is allowed to play. If you remove all the free froms of play, and that means culture, music and so on, the whole development of the society will stop and fall back in agony. When we look at the people who are waiting for their trains many of them play with their smartphones. It doesn`t matter if they are farming, or shooting, or learning or reading the fact is, that all of them “play” with the mobile. If we look back 10 years ago, I remember those long train-rides when we have been out with the school. Some of us, had some books to cover the time and the others only talked about senseless things, from my point of view and 10 years later. Was that also playing? Is that how a society can change until 10 years ?

Well this and some other questions will be answered soon. And well I like this course. It is the course where we have to create our own videogame. And how does it looks like? TO be honest I have a small, a really small idea.  🙂

When the night comes #Portugal #Coimbra

I hope I can make it the next days to the beach. But wait the easter break is coming and so I have to finish 2 assignments I think. And then I have to book a flight back home. And to plan a project, to program and oh my god… how would I do that. But I know it the only solution is a beer. According to the new statistic the implemented I have to say I don`t care. Beer is a cool drink I like it and if you bother me for that è THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM , Cheers J

Beer

But be honest, I could talk and make a presentation about the advantages of beer and how beer changed the world but I think this is not necessary. The combination between spare time and fulfill the duty is all I can do now. That`s all for the moment. Good night and good luck

Portugese — go for it

It has been a while since I have uploaded some post. To be honest it was a really tough week. First of all I spend the weekend on an learning event. Portuguese language Test 1. I have no idea how this was but I recognized one think. If you want to speak the Portuguese way it is not enough to learn from the sheet. You have to interact with other people and to train the language in the field. You know what I mean. Well how can you do that.

The first approach is, add a Portuguese newspaper on your start page. Portuguese should cover your way. And you should start the morning with your new language.

Second when you have a radio, listen to the news. Don`t choose an 80ies channels choose one which is really Portuguese.

Third, if you got no Portuguese friends, then go out and find some. Or the other way, let them find you in BARS, CLUBS and on many other places. And always go to the same locations. The people are really kind and if you try to order in Portuguese the will help you with your language.

Forth. Go to a football match and find some new friends. It is an event, believe me, when you order your first ticket in Portuguese while the line behind you is growing bigger and bigger. And the moment when you have the ticket in your hand is unbelievable.

And the last advice for today, should be, warch TV. Especially TELENOVELAS which are really really really really big in this country. And they are in.. you got it PORTUGUESE.

In the library

And here we are. Or better I am here where are you? Well today it is not really sunny so I decided to work a little bid on my project. And I recognized, damn thelib2re are some others who had the same idea then me.

But I am prepared I have enough money for the coffee machine and I have enough money to by me a beer afterwards. Well why not. I think I don’t have the opportunity in my live to life in a city which where thousands of students are located. Yesterday I missed the COIMBRA night runners. So that is a task for the next week. At the moment I am preparing myself for the presentation tomorrow where we will present our idea about MACAO.

MACAO was given to the Portuguese people from the Chinese emperor in the exchange of knowledge and to establish a route where the goods and materials can come to Europe by the sea. Here is a WIKIPEDIA article where you can get further information’s about. You can also change the language, if you want. lib1

Good night and good luck, Christian

Streets of Coimbra #streets

 

And sometimes, there is what we call the weekend. But when the weekend begins, the streets of Coimbra are still there. When the sun has gone, they city does not sleeps. Especially on Thursday. This seems the day where all of the student’s are going out. And I? I am exploring the city in the night, here are some expressions about it.

If you are planning to go to Coimbra I would suggest that you begin your journey on Wednesday and stay over the weekend. You can begin to explore the city and after all, you can join the nightlife. I am still watching and exploring how this would be for the next few weeks.

Good night and good luck Christian
