Today was the finale of this years Global Game Jam. If you don’t know such types of events yet, basically one has 48 hours to complete a game for a given theme, either alone or as a team. The beauty of Global Game Jam (compared to the also cool Ludum Dare) is, it’s at predefined […]

Epi-Lasik – An Eye-witness Report

July 29, 2016

After years of thinking about it I finally went through: I did a Lasik operation and got rid of my glasses. I read through so many forums and sites before for bits of information here and there. I felt quite prepared because of that but I think it is really worth to write one comprehensive blog about the […]

There’s a new book from Robert Fischer accompanied again, of course, by the Fibotrader charting software. It’s backing up the book’s content with tons of charts and signal reports.
