Den Wald vor lauter Bäumen nicht sehen …

A common German phrase reads: “not to see the wood for the trees”. I guess it is also know to non-German speakers? I just found this very trivial and easy Matlab command line, which makes my equivalent lines look very stupid and complicated:

a= [1; 4; 6; 8; 12]; k=9;

[min_difference, array_position] = min(abs(a – k))

These treasures make my day!

SEK – EURO dilemma

I have to pay back an interest free study loan to the German state, and finally have the money together in SEK, however seing how the Swedish Krona has performed over the last month tells me to wait some more time before paying it back?

widechartwidechart225 % loss in worth over just few month, that would be 1000 EURO more to pay for some 5000 EURO I have to pay? Normally I really don’t spend attention, but these graphs (taken from here) tell me to pay more attention. I hope it goes back to its former state, otherwise I am screwed.
