Learning new languages

The weekend was pretty nice. Spain beat France 2-0 (vamos sirpicha, sorry spendy). Then Fernando Alonso won The Grand Prix of Europe (Valencia), despite starting from 11th on the grid. Kimi Raikkonen got 2nd and Michael Schumacher 3rd (starting 12th on the grid). And now Alonso leads the drivers’ championship with 111 agaisnt Webber’s 91.

Other than that, had good time learning Spanish and Clojure. Reached Skill 5 in DuoLingo and did some initial 30 odd problems at 4Clojure.com. Learning both Clojure and Spanish seems addictive. Once the rhythm settles in, it becomes hard to stop pushing harder.

On the shopping front, just purchased my first ever e-book, “Functional Programming for Object Oriented Programmers”, purchased a cool toy that has been shipped and should be arriving shortly as well as a book from Infibeam to help me make best use of the toy. Among other activities, trying to chase down a few bugs with the Python support in Anjuta. Also, in recent days, I’ve run into excellent form with the Pirc Defence as black. So long as it doesn’t transpose into a King’s Indian, I seem to be doing great in the opening and middlegame. As white, trying out some Smith-Morra stuff and King’s Gambit with reasonable success.
