Using an O2 Huawei E1750 USB 3G Modem with Snow Leopard in Prague

On my most recent trip to Prague, I needed to secure relatively hi-speed internet on a month by month basis, without waiting the 2 weeks required to DSL your home line. A home line that I didn't even own. Before my arrival my wife got a vodafone cellar modem for me, which worked right out of the box and came with a month free trial with deposit. This sounded exploitable, except the 2gb limit (in a month) ran out fast, and from there Vodafone requires 6 month contracts. I did a little research and found that O2 has an English speaking store and a day by day prepay contract. Awesome.

I get the modem, run to my soviet-era panel building and plug the modem in. Nothing. Nothing at all.

Installing and Using a Czech Keyboard on your iPhone

The iPhone comes with a great number of built-in international keyboards. I will be discussing how to first turn on and then how to use the Czech keyboard. The great thing is that Apple made this easier than ever, and I hope they learn to make the Apple computer equivalents as easy to use (please see my previous article: Writing in Czech on your Mac). I don't want to waste your precious time, so here we go:

Czech Lesson 2.4 - Location Words and Genders

For this session I am going to list a number of locations and the gender of the word. When using the locative case, the gender of the location must be determined to proper declenate the location properly. Please see the Locative Case Quick Guide for more information on how to properly declenate these location words by gender.

  • škola : school (Feminine)
  • divadlo : theater (Neutral)
  • pošta : post office (Feminine)
  • moře : sea (Neutral)

Czech Lesson 2.2b - Locative Case Quick Guide

As a final followup on the previous two posts, I have generated a small list that gives the general rules to apply to each genders nouns when in the locative.

Czech Lesson 2.2 - Locative Case Continued

Today's lesson continues with the locative case. I am simply going to expand upon the previous post filling out more of the list of locative example sentances with the neutral and masculine gender.

The Czech language uses the locative case to denote location (for eample: v České Republice/in the Czech Republic) and may also be used after certain prepositions with meanings other than location (for eample: o Praze/about Prague, po revoluci/after the revolution).

Czech Lesson 2.1 - Locative Case

The Czech language uses the locative case to denote location (for eample: v České Republice/in the Czech Republic) and may also be used after certain prepositions with meanings other than location (for eample: o Praze/about Prague, po revoluci/after the revolution).

For my examples I will use 'v/ve' and 'na', which translate roughly as 'in' and 'on'.

Czech Flash Cards Bonus

I had a little time to spend in my Drupal workshop this evening and I cooked you all up another view on the ever popular Czech flash cards. Additionally I have incorporated another batch of cards bringing the total count above the 200 mark.

More Czech Flash Cards

It has been awhile since I have put any posts here, due to the fact that it doesn't make me any money. That's right, I have been busy with work and learning Czech. To go with the topic of learning Czech, I have just posted another 50 flash cards to test yourself with.

This set includes more numbers, the days of the weeks, and a smattering of verbs and food item. I have created four views on these cards for you to begin your learning adventure with, please see:

Flash Cards for Learning Czech

I am in the process of learning the Czech language. To help myself along, I decided to make some flash cards to drill myself with. Being the geek that I am, I decided that I should create the cards digitally. Now I want to share my results with the rest of the Czech-learning world.
