The Day of the Aliens

Today I saw a documentary about extraterrestrial life, the movie ET and the movie Signs, all at the same time on TV. What? Is it alien day or something?
It's an interesting subject though. I like the idea of extraterrestrial intelligent life, I can't wait for them to show up! I've always wanted to travel in space, to the moon and mars, but most of all, to travel much farther, see other planets, solar systems, even galaxies. See other civilizations, I'm really curious about alien civilizations!
I've been watching a lot of X-Files episodes lately and the whole Man In Black thing, I like that to. The in the loop thing, to know a secret that almost no one else knows, to work in secret on something which is for the good of the entire planet, it has a strange attraction. For as long as I remember I've been really curious, I always wanted to know everything, even if it is a great and heavy burden to carry. I just want to know everything, especially things that only a few people know ;)
O well, so much for now! Farewell!

Robocup or Robocop?

Robocup is a good starter subject I guess. Me and four friends competed last year in the World Championship RoboCup, 3D Simulation League (under the name LittleGreenBats). It was really exciting. It basically is a virtual soccer match in which our team had to compete against a whole lot of other teams from all over the world. We ended about 20th. Which really isn't all that bad. Most of all it was just fun! This year we're trying again. We've been at it since September. We redesigned most of our architecture and it is starting to come together.
The only pitfall is that it is decided (by the league) that this year we need to play with humanoid players (last year it was more or less floating spheres), which means that we need to program them to run and to have any chance we need them to run really fast and precise too.. We need to qualify no later than the 10th of March, which is pretty quick and as of yet only one team member has succeeded in running the server that supports the humanoid players... But still I think we are going to make it!

I'll post any progress here! So come back if you're interested..

Inspiration, Inspiration

Cool I have a new blog! Lets put something in it! Lets blog!... But what to tell? Well I'm sure something will come up soon. So until then, my faithful crowd of none!

My New Blog

Hello imaginary people reading this! So I decided to give this blog-thing a try. For as long as I remember I wanted some online page where I could put my thoughts and opinions on the everyday and not so everyday things that cross my mind. Today, for the first time, I realized that such a page is called 'A Blog' and that I really don't need to code it myself, I can just go to my Google account and click on 'blog'! Silly me.. Come to think about it, I think that I wanted a blog even before they were called blogs. Well, for now, that satisfies my fright for doing that hype-thing..

Good bye imaginary people! You might hear from me again.
