Let me just start by saying that “I love to be a computer programmer!”…
Yes, I also enjoy all the other stuff related with computers, but my main drive is pick up a problem, find an algorithm to solve it and then put it to work (programming like craky…)! One way to improve these skills is to solve programming problems.
There’s an excelent site where that is possible and simple. Just subscribe to the UVa Online Judge, select one of many problems available and submit your solution. Problem’s difficulty range from very easy to extremely difficult.
My phrase of the day is “If you can play it, you can store it…”.
If you use mplayer as your usual media player my congratulations. This one of the best and more versatile media player I know. This shell command media player (there is also a GUI available to those who prefer the little buttons) never failed me…
The ability to play media streams over the net (through mms, rtsp, etc) is one of my favorite features. Another great feature is the ability to store locally the stream’s content.
I love to learn new stuff with my little daughter. She is reaching a age where lots a questions must be answered. The last question was about the meaning of PM that appears just after the time in the digital clock from my task bar.
The question caught me completely off guard, but I like to answer all my daughter’s questions… from the easiest to the most complicated!!! So, after a joint googling adventure we found the meaning of PM/AM.
From wikipedia we got: “The 12-hour clock is a timekeeping convention in which the 24 hours of the day are divided into two periods called ante meridiem (a.m., Latin “before noon”) and post meridiem (p.m., “after noon”).”.
