Hello readers,

I have been a bit quiet the past few days but I have been really busy with my new study: ‘Informatica’ (in Dutch) or better known worldwide as ‘Computer Science’!.

I started with this study six weeks ago and I really like it. We are now learning the programming language Python. And this we do in different ways.

  1. Outsource your passwords to a robot
    The human brain can only remember so many passwords, not to mention we’re actually really bad at picking good ones. So, too often we just reuse passwords across multiple sites. This is a Very Bad Idea. Once hackers break into a website and steal a database of email addresses and passwords, they can then try to use those same passwords to login to other sites.

Bianchi | Racebike Via Nirone 7

A few months ago I decided to change from sport. I have been a field hockeyplayer and goalkeeper for over twelve years and now it was time to do something else. I decided to start with the sport cycling. I became member of a cyclingclub here nearby and got a lot of advice. Of course I needed a suited bike as well to make a good start.

And this is my new bike:

Yes, I have to admit…I fell in love with the brand Bianchi which is an Italian brand that started in 1885. So this year is also it’s 130 years anniversary! Innovation, exclusiveness, quality, design and passion are the keywords that describe Bianchi!

Duolingo

With the era of the new technology and more and more e-learning programmes for children in primary school and high school to understand technology or train languages in a different way, as a fourth year student I see already a big difference then when I was in the last year of primary school, using rarely a computer, had to write paper by hand with a calligraphy pen and a fountain pen and using typex for mistakes. And for the decorations we made our own drawings of the subject.
