Odyssey 2001

Nothing today but his… I haven’t finished watching this cartoon yet, but it is something smart and philosophical to feed your mind.

Creed III is coming I guess

Just watched “Creed II”. The first movie was better, much better. Ok, waiting for Creed III. Wrote another review on IMDb.

Not getting older, younger. Weird. Comparing to Stallone I mean.

Xamarin, and so what?

I don’t need another IDE in fact, Xcode would be quite enough to get done some programming, but the idea to learn C++ is going up and up and up that I’m reading nowadays the book with the title “Beginning C++ through game programming” by Michael Dawson, and I liked it very much so far.

If you can’t get the idea of types, integers, arrays, functions, and classes, go and get this book!

For example, what’s an array? In some books and articles on the Internet about programming you’ll read something “Arrays in C++ An array is a collection of elements of the same type placed in contiguous memory locations that can be individually referenced by using an index to a unique identifier,” get the idea? I’m not!

In this book, you’ll find explanations something like…

Can you see the sequence of icons at the bottom of the screen? Here’s your array at work. The same you can find on the right side of the screen, i.e. Warcraft uses an array to store the player’s inventory, but in our case, some magic that hero has.

Read Sam Stenner‘s answer to Can some give an example of the use of an array in a video game? on Quora

Learn Korean with…

He is quite good if you want to learn Korean but don’t know where and how to start. As a learner of Korean language, I have to say that it is going to be an amazing journey into the phonetic alphabet of Korean and… It’s a lot of work. But this guy is really good, especially his videos about grammar and his certainly his book “Learn Made Simple by Billy Go”.

Not quite as good as Range Rover

If Lamborghini started to make off-roads, I can’t imagine how much they earned out of their sports cars.

For an auto-maker I think, making a new type of car is only possible if you had successful models earlier, right? It’s like making a new kind of soda if the earlier sellings reports were successful, right? Or am I talking about obvious things there?

How I spent Friday’s evening?

The guy is super humble, and I respect him for what he went through with his wife and changed his life when he became an actor but stayed with the same values. Semi-biographical stand-up comedy show held not at the theater, but at the club. Chow is a great storyteller. Highly recommended to watch!

DeGeneres Netflix special was, sorry, so boring.

An ode to the bus

303 is for a coach made by Mercedes-Benz.

Svetik and I watched the movie yesterday at the local cinema center, an interesting love story in the road movie genre.

Actually, yesterday was Valentine’s day. The website, where the tickets were bought, promised to run subtitles with original audio, but there was horrible Russian language translation which ruined everything. Not good.

The film was O.K., by the way, for low-budget and lack of characters.

Sugar Man

Forget everything for now, and go and watch this life-changing documentary! Also, watch everything around the movie, especially how it was made and tragic story of its director’s life.

 

Also, I wrote a review especially for this title on IMDb.

Racket it!

The book “Masters of Doom” is hugely recommended reading if you haven’t been amazed by it yet.

Time to learn Racket? Everything he touches, John makes it seems to be super simple, but it is not.
