Re-Wri-Day: Hello World

Inspired by EdMooneyPhotography’s Re-Work-Wednesday and based on the fact that my writing style for this Blog has changed over the past two years I kind of created my own version of this.
But why the strange name and what does it mean?
I’m awful when it comes to puns and I couldn’t help myself but to turn re-write and Friday into one strange word: Re-Wri-Day. Sorry…
But in conclusion: These posts are supposed to be always published on a Friday, but not necessarily on every Friday that comes from now on…just the Fridays when I feel like editing an old post…
And what am I doing with this?
I am taking my old posts from the beginnings of writing this Blog and read them again to see what things I can change or add. They wont necessarily be actually re-written, but some changes will be made.
In the Re-Wri-Day post I’ll also give you a couple of thoughts on why I had chosen the topic and stuff you might be interested in.
So, let’s start with the very first post: Hello World
As being new to Blogging I just thought about how I wanted to go about writing my first post.
And as a programmer (I just noticed that I kind of never mentioned that openly before…ups…) I couldn’t have done it any differently then by using the Hello World-Java Code.
Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t really like formatting code-fragments properly, so I am stuck with a weird version of it. (If anyone knows how to make spaces and tabs in such a display, let me know.)
The things I added in the post include mentioning of this Blog being written in my second language and the things that were first on this page being my writings. I thought those things should be cleared up.
As it goes by the same title I also had a look at the static start page and changed a couple of phrasings. I guess what I put there is more or less enough for a passerby to know what this Blog can offer. Guess I should have a look at the About page at some point as well…it is rather…cryptic…
And that’s about it for this post as well and it concludes a rare week of three updates.
I don’t think that will happen that often again.
I don’t want to spoil you. 😉
I’m curious how this whole re-writing will work out and what changes I’ll make to the posts I have…maybe I’ll even find a post or two that does not need to be „re-written“…but I doubt that. 😀

Hello World

„Hello world“

Two words that symbolize a lot of meanings.
One way to „translate“ them could be:
„Hello world, I’m here, waiting for you to notice/acknowledge my existence.“

And of course those words are used in different contexts.
Normally one could think of a child’s birth at first.
Their crying merely saying: „Hello world, I’m here, entertain me.“
Then again it could simply stand for being the starting post for a Blog – just like this one.
Introducing yourself to the masses with a friendly „Hello“.

Though my personal association with those two words is different.
It is a way to try out something new in a foreign language.
Just as I am writing this Blog in my second language.
Therefore the meaning I learned is as follows:

public class HelloWorld{
public static void main(String[] args){
System.out.println("Hello World!");

(Please forgive the weird format, WordPress wont let me change it properly…)

And no, that is not what you can expect from this Blog.
It’s way more random than that…

There are way more interpretations of the words, but it is more fun to think about them yourself. 😉

With this I close for today and send you off to explore what I already added to this site.
Which basically are several stories of mine.

Enjoy your stay. 🙂
