Geocache Description:

Mikontalo on Tampereen seudun opiskelija-asuntosäätiön suuri opiskelija-asuntola Tampereen Hervannassa osoitteessa Insinöörinkatu 60. Mikontalo on suosittu asuinpaikka Tampereen teknillisen yliopiston opiskelijoiden keskuudessa sen halpojen vuokrien ja yliopiston läheisyyden takia. (Wikipedia)

Asumalla opiskelija-asunnossa asumisen kulut voi tehokkaasti minimoida. Niinpä tämä kätkö esitteleekin erään äärimmäisen minimalistisen menetelmän, joka sisältää vain kahdeksan komentoa: ">", "<", "+", "-", ".", ",", "[" sekä "]". Suoritettava ohjelmakoodi ja lopulliset koordinaattipisteet on kätketty internetin syvyyksiin. Osaatko kaivaa tekstin esiin tarpeeksi syvältä?

Kysymys kuuluukin, onko opiskelija-asunnossa asuminen voitto? Kumpaa sinä arvostat enemmän: rahaa vai mukavuutta?

Tiesitkö muuten, että vuonna 2007 Mikontalon seinällä pelattiin muun muassa tetristä? Tapahtumasta on video Youtubessa:

Mikontalo is a large student housing complex in Hervanta, Tampere, Finland. Its exact address is Insinöörinkatu 60, 33720 Tampere, Finland. With affordable rents, easy availability and location near Tampere University of Technology, it is popular dwelling for first year students and exchange students. (Wikipedia)

By living in a student apartment, you can effectively minimize your cost of living. Therefore this geocache introduces you to a method notable for its extreme minimalism. It consists of only eight simple commands: ">", "<", "+", "-", ".", ",", "[" and "]". Executable program code and the final coordinates are hidden deep in the internet. Can you dig deep enough to find the text?

So the question is, is it a win to live in a student apartment? Which one do you prefer more: money or comfort?

By the way, did you know that in 2007 Mikontalo dormitory was converted into gigantic Tetris display? A video of the event is available at Youtube:
