Learning a new natural language

So the main question I’m currently asking myself is how much foreign language can you absorb in 10 days?

Have no clue, but I’m sure I’ll find out.

Googled a little, found a nifty tool called DuoLingo.
They state that it is possible to gain language skill level of one semestar using their tool.
The Research paper can be found here (https://www.duolingo.com/research).

Will definitely try that out and track my progress here on a daily base.

How to Install NUnit testing Framework and Visual Studio Test Adapter

GitHub project I’m currently playing around with required NUnit testing framework.
At first I have installed latest and the greatest version 3.2.1.
Tried to run the tests, nothing happened.
Hmmmm, what was I missing? I’m always missing something.
After poking around the project I soon realized 3.2.1 was not the right version.
Written tests were not running because they were written for version 2.6.4.
After additional installation and setting up of test adapters for visual studio everything worked.


One test that’s failing is of course written by me. It’s a smoke test for TCP implementation I’m working on.

All the needed links are below.

How to enable .net 2.0 on windows 10

A few day ago I ran into a interesting issue.
I needed .net 2.0 on Windows 10 machine.

Yeah, I know… welcome to the year 2016.

Lucky the issue is resolved easily.
Search for “Turn Windows features on or off” or look it up in Control panel.


There you will find “.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)”.
Just check it and click OK.
The system will do the rest for you.
