Cum să faci un gard în doi timpi și trei.. luni

Pentru că o porțiune din gard începea un dubios proces de simbioză cu nu-stiu-ce-plantă cățărătoare am decis că e timpul să-l schimbăm. Asta se întâmpla în mai și așa arăta schimbabilul la acea perioadă. 0. Primul pas și cel mai greu a fost să găsim un model de gard (înălțime, distanță între uluci, culoare! etc).

Hello World

hello world

I wanted to write down here all the basic ways I could possible think of / find to spit print “Hello World!” via a programming language to the screen. I could think of a dozen by heart and the next step I did was to google it (daaah). And what a gem have I found!! Without further introduction, helloworldcollection.de !
