The_(c)Striker's Journals

Ok this is weird. I'm not registered on wikipedia as an editor, I never edited an article, and even if I will, I will do so constructively.
Yet today I see that I've got "a message" on a wiki page. At first I thought some kind of malware got in my PC, but I still clicked it.

Seems like for the IP I currently have (I have a dynamic IP) "I" received several warnings( on articles I never even visited), with a final warning after which I will be blocked from editing.

I'm not really concerned, because tomorrow I'll probably have a new IP, but this raises some questions:
How do PCs on internet are actually identified?
If some guy gets banned on a site and then I receive his IP, what happens?
Or is Wikipedia just broken?

[EDIT] I'm thinking of pasting a link to an interesting website I discover in each journal, or in some at least.

Link #1: Very interesting spore-like game in which you compose music by creating tiny waveform creatures which interact.

Just came back to the dorms. I have a fan blowing my face and I still feel like being in a sauna. AND IT'S NIGHT TIME.
What the heck is with all this sudden heat?!

Why is it that every time I try hard to concentrate on studying, my imagination kicks in even harder? This is a burden.
And when I've got plenty of free time my imagination is sucked into a void.

Something smells fishy here.

Math uni looks like real fun when the teacher plots results on the blackboard, but the moment I am given a problem to solve, I'm lost. Watching the teacher writing different equations and formulas that transform like magic in weird geometric figures is interesting and gives me the feel of a geek. It's somewhat like the feeling of watching a geeky film. The feeling is shattered once I realize how fun would it be able to play with such math, but I can't.

Then there's differential equations, which are crap.

Yup... I guess I'm changing my prefix... :).

Have you guys heard about Coursera?
It's a website where you can enroll in some courses held by different colleges around the world. They are totally free, or so it seems.
But there are a lot of interesting things there, and you even get a certificate for attending them( but I think it is this certificate that isn't free).

- What is the actual method of "attending" these courses? I couldn't find out, is it participating in some kind of conference like you'd do with google+?

- Is it compulsory to attend all the hours? If so, this is hard to manage for people with a busy schedule.

- Finally, what do you think about all this?

I just ate peanut butter for the first time. It's actually not bad.

What do you use this stuff on besides eating it as it is?

Mulberries. A delicious fruit I used to eat as a child.

How about you?
