Huhu, job offers

Whew, with such unemployment in Europe the future is certainly unknown. But I always listen to things like “hey, if you are good in what you are doing, you have nothing to be afraid”. Well, “hey, does this solves the problem?”. Why unemployment exists anyway? Shouldn’t we just kill it?

If unemployment is rising this means, more people don’t have a job. The more people don’t have work, the more CVs will rise. The more CVs means worse working environment. The worse working environment, means more suicides (also bad health, and we die earlier). Other people will replace the missing, and that’s how this will go on. It’s like recycling, but is this what we want? Is this the cure of our problems? HELL NO. Humans never liked recycling, and we can’t let this happen.

I propose we all exchange CVs and work for each other. If a friend needs something that you can produce, help him, and may the opposite will happen. In this way, we will all have a work, and also a better CV. This means better job chances, more professional employees, better working environment, and lastly, the fall of unemployment. HELL YEAH. In small scale it worked, why not in large? Simple logic guys.

So, what happens now? Revolution?no.Elections?no.War?…hold yourself….no. What happens is Experimental Gameplay Project, The Experimental Gameplay Workshop, Global Game Jam, and the list goes on, and of course these opportunities happen  in every side of life. Just get yourself known. Do something. Best of luck my fellow humanoids.

Talk to strangers

My grandmother always used to tell me “Don’t talk to strangers”, my grandfather used to tell me to reject people who want to give me something like candies, my mother told me never to open the door to strangers. Well, I just did the opposite.

A friend of mine introduced me to this website where you can go and simply talk to someone. It’s really easy, but that special someone will be a stranger that just happened to get in that website. This probably means many of things. Or he wants to make fun, or make internet sex, or meet people in real life and then steal their inner organs like the rib, or eyes and then sell them to a rich man in exchange for 5.000.000$  (I find it a nice deal if you ask me). But other people like me, get in there and talk about politics. Well I just happened to speak to a Chinese, that wanted to shoot Mao and all his family ( not actually but this sounds more dramatical). I suggest CIA to add this website to the list of probable source of terrorist discussions, along with Second Life, Lineage 2 and other MMO games. You never know what you will find!

In other words expect the fall of that evil communist government that torture the world. I would help him, but as I said I’m at vacation, so no time for that. DEMOCRACY FTW!!!!

Vacation Mode On

Ahhhh, my holidays have just started. I am at Messenia and swimming at last in sea. No jelly-fish for now, lucky me.

The trip to the hotel was tiresome. Not only we changed two busses and it lasted about 6 hours, but the road was through the mountains, and in the end I got a stomach ache. And at that exact part was the time, that a beautiful local lady sat next to me… :( . We talked about the beautiful places of her birthplace, and told me some monuments to visit, the castle of Koroni, the ancient city of Koroni, the castle of Kalamata, some beautiful and forgotten by God beaches, the village of Xora which seems like an islands’ city with its traditional houses, and a cafe with a nice view over a beach. All that talking made my stomach ache even worse, and the final part was spoiled. YOU ARE OUTLAW PETE.

I will upload pictures when I can. The hotel has free wireless access via internet, so I can stay in touch with most of my friends. But no reading in vacation mode :P .  See ya in my next post (or comments? who knows?). Have a nice day fellow humanoids.

Linear algebra

Personally, I used to hate maths. I always thought it as a waste of time. It just needs so much attention for something so tiny, and without realising it, my grades started dropping… YOU ARE OUTLAW PETE. But then again, I had that really amazing physics teacher at my final year of school, who made me love physics, maths, and ancient greek again (no do not try to use that as your own excuse). So my conclusion became that math is interesting to those who know where to apply it.

I’ve read recently (before two hours) linear algebra, from a game developers’ article, and was really astonished. I mean, wοοt, WTF, where the hell that came from??? The article is based on physics in games development, and though I’ve not reached such a level yet, quickly became fond of it. I’ve read an XNA tutorial about 2D game development, where they use radians to calculate the rotation of objects, and cos and sin (I’ve really forgotten that ones) for the velocity, but didn’t really paid much attention. I thought I should just copy-paste it. And now, out of the blue, I’ve just realised what vectors are!!!(and scalars too!)

It seems to me, that what someone really needs is a good example, and not something like “solve this” (GO TO HELL). So nip down to grab a book, and start gaining knowledge, you humanoid. Best of luck.
