elephant.png Criticism of myself

I am a geek who walks through the real life since some weeks. It wasn't a bad feeling and some people there were really nice and it was sometimes very awesome. But I've should noticed that I am not mainstream, so I shouldn't be there (so often at least).

These days a lot of people hit me with their prejudices and tell me that I get on their nerves. Really painful.

I believe I need some distance.

note.png Electronic Music

Hm. I guess I know why some people like electronic music. Okay, nevertheless it's a genre like any other genre. But today I listen to some of my songs (soul, pop and so on) and I saw myself singing.

Then I asked myself what the electronic people would do in this case. I mean, simply they cannot sing together with their songs. So I guess they would move their heads up and down so that they can feel the vibes more clearly.

Of course this kind of listening to music is more friendly to the community (the people who live next to you, or behind your door*g*) than singing together with your songs. ... I guess you get my point. ;-)

So I should listen to electronic music more often. The people who live together with me on the floor would thank me.

Seems like summer is back almost everywhere in Germany. I was waken up by the first solar radiation this day. And it seems like it is warm out there.

Enjoy the day and take the very good mood of it inside of you. :-)

!.png Prejudice of cs

In these days I hate prejudices of computer science. Who are computer scientists? Are they humans like you? Of course! So why do the mass think that we are crazy people, who never go out and only sit down in a dark room and program senseless stuff which is only used by other computer scientists? That's simply not true.

Do we have got less friends than everybody else? Maybe. But is that the way you should judge about a human being? Is a computer scientist less worth to be loved?

Maybe the freaks are crazy and totally mad, maybe the nerds have got less social contacts - maybe... But don't list our bad faces. What can we do for you? And, even more important, what can you do for us?

So please stop laughing at us, stop whispering, don't quarrel with us about our studies or about our philosophies. Accept us as normal human beings. And forget your prejudices...

Sometimes you might think that you know somebody. She was only there. You talked to her but nothing else. It was only fun with her because you believe nobody else could understand you like she does.

She is different from everything else. She's not mainstream. She is... unique.

And then she is all around you. You go out with her and it is nice. You talked to her and think the world stands still.

I never felt that friendship is so import like right now. I will never miss her.

video.png Elementarteilchen

Just because of a very spontaneous idea of Linette we went this night into the movie Elementarteilchen (elementary particles).

It's a german movie about a france book. The topic is very easy, it's about sex - everywhere and at any time. I don't know the book, but the film is very strange at this point. There is almost no action but a lot of emotions and senseless talks. But it has got a nice spirit somehow...

It was a very nice night at the auditorium nevertheless.*gg*

Noia_64_mimetypes_font.png Kant Lesson I

On Wednesday was my first lecture about I. Kant. We learned a little bit about his life and the time he lived in. Then we started to read his work - Critique of Pure Reason.

Just because I've read some parts of this book, I thought that I've got a better chance. But the interpretation of our mathematic professor is very different. We read the whole introduction last time. So we got Kant's definition of science and then we discussed if computer science is really science. Funny. Really.

calc.png Math Lecture

Yesterday were some math lectures (1, 2) on my time table. It was a little bit strange to get some facts about our mathematically universe twice - but it was okay. We learned some old facts about sets and functions.

After English I had got some free time today, so I decided to join Astrid's math lectures this morning as well. There the students learned some facts about the basic sets, too, but then also some new facts about how to solve the term: x^2 = -1 ; x = +/- sqrt(-1).

The solution is to define some new numbers - the complex numbers. There you have got the term: x^2 = -1 ; x = +/- i. It was quite cool to listen to the professor and just sit down next to a wonderful person. *gg*

Because of the hint of StevenR (an EE) I would like to make clear that it is j because of the confusion with a changing current, not i. ;-)

!.png computer science to touch

Maybe you remeber my blog entry about the year of the computer science. On Tuesday there was a little event of this year here at the TU Ilmenau.

The site of this day listed some presentations and a lot of information material of computer science and this day. So that could be some fun, I thought.

So I went to the auditorium maximum to have a look at some presentations. But the floor were empty. Only one single place were two students sat down and in front of them lie some information paper. Annoying.

"Imagine it's computer science and nobody joins it"[*].

Poor computer science.

humans.png First Week

Hm. I don't know where to start, because the last week was very interesting and exciting. I've got a lot of information about the connections of the university (network) and had some very nice talks with very nice humans (partly computer scienctists and engineering cybernetics). I also got in touch with girls. ;-)

The clubs (bc, bd and bh, bi) are awesome and the SAP (start party in the mensa) was very cool. The speeches of the professors and the meetings with our tutors contain as much information for us as possible.

Today my math lessons will beginn at 1100 UTC. Enjoy your day!

a.png Forkbomb Blog

hansmi released some days ago the Forkbomb Blog.

It's a shared webblog of some Forkbomb guys. The topics are various. Please have a look at this project and enjoy it.

P.S.: Fefe please, don't hit hansmi. *eg*

Noia_64_apps_ark.png Move

Tomorrow I will move to Ilmenau. Strange feeling nevertheless. What will happen? Can I be successful? Am I going to meet some nice people there? Too many questions, to less answers.

If you notice some strange actions on the services of nanofortnight, please get in contact with one of the forkbomb guys. I will have a connection through the FeM network in a few days (hopefully).

Nice night and a great week to everybody (especially for the Erstis ;-)).

Update 2006-10-03 20:19: I am wired now. :-) More 2morrow.
