Wednesday 21 March 2012: First Tree In Blossom
I'm not sure how I missed this on Monday & Tuesday but at least I noticed it today. I was out for a bit of a walk at lunchtime and saw this on the way back to the office/classroom. It had loads of insects at it and I wasn't up to investigating if they were wasps or bees. Pretty tree though - more signs of spring and all that.
The course continues to be an adventure - at any rate, my vocabulary is getting a workout. However I managed to complete the first programming problem* and think I've got a pretty good solution. We'll see tomorrow how far I've progressed up my learning cliff.
Yesterday's song was Behind Blue Eyes by The Who (who were, coincidentally, the first band I saw live - Glasgow Apollo 1981).
Today's is bit easier - I think. And <PARP> isn't actually in the song, it's just how I'm bleeping it out so I don't reveal the title. Here you go:-
Es war etwas in der Luft diese Nacht
Die Sterne waren hell, <PARP>
Sie schienen dort für dich und mich
Für die Freiheit, <PARP>
Obwohl wir nie dachten, dass wir verlieren könnten
Bedauern wir nichts
Wenn ich dasselbe wieder machen müsste, würde ich es, mein Freund, <PARP>
I' can hear the song in my head now but with <PARP> added.
* First practical was to display all the prime numbers between 2 and 5000 on the screen and have them formatted in 10 columns. The program has to work out if the number is prime. Oh and you have to keep a record of how many prime numbers you've printed out and have that as a summary line.
Fun little problem.
