PhYnformatik started in 2010 as a Blog about Ubuntu, the open source world and games. It was used to publish some (self-written) programs and stuff about programming.

Writing about commands, a $ stands for a user command, whereas # is used, when root permissions are needed for some time. Have a look at the following example.

$ vim test.txt
$ sudo -s
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade

The name PhYnformatik is a mixture of my Nickname (Phylu), Physics and Informatics.

Within the last years, the topics got broader. The site collects university publications and summaries of several lectures (in computer science, educational science and psychology).
