Assignment 3 and so far…

Through the Assignment 3, I learned a few more things about Python including how to use ‘Try and Exception’ and how to make a function. ‘Try and Exception’ is very similar concept of ‘Try and Catch’ in C++ so it was easy to understand the usage of it. For me, using ‘argument parse’ library was hardest part. In fact, I still don’t know how to use it exactly. I think I need more practice to use it.

Now, I might know just few things about Python but I want to say Python is interesting and easy language ( Even I had a conflict over finishing Assignment 3) especially, when a variable is declared, it is interesting that I do not need to select a type of data such as int, double, float and char. (actually, user can declare a type of data after declare a variable.) Of course, there is a thing that I do not like it. That is indentation. I think it is very strict about indentation since there is no use of brackets in Python. Sometimes, it makes me hard to keep tracking my code.

Re-install Ubuntu.

First of all, my first posting is pretty late. I’m so sorry.

I was using Oracle VM VirtualBox to run Ubuntu until last night. It was slow and inconvenient to use it. I could not take this anymore. Therefore, I decided to make an Ubuntu PC with my 5-years old Netbook. My netbook is the first ’Eee pc’ series, which was made by ASUS. (It really doesn’t look like netbook. Heavy and Thick)

I used the program ‘Universal USB installer’ to make bootable USB installer. After setting the boot priority configuration, I plugged in my USB. Installing Ubuntu was pretty easy. What I did was just few clicks and set my name and password for my account. The installation took 50min including update. Everything works well. One thing that I realized was I did not need to install drivers for graphic, sound and network.  Since I had used only Windows before, it was pretty interesting.
