Caminul 5, sau cum sa dai o palma la un căcat

campus.jpgNu stiu cati dintre voi ati avut ocazia sa vedeti caminele din Observator. Da, da, alea de la Poli, cu 4 – 5 in camera, cu buda si dusul pe palier, caminele medicinistelor vis-à-vis etc. Am trait acolo o vreme, si recent, din afara, am inceput sa observ schimbari in bine: termopane, renovari, culori pastelate, mai mai ca incepea sa imi para rau ca m-am mutat din camin, ca nu mai e acolo gasca de prieteni, oamenii cu care stateam la chefuri pana la 12 apoi venea portaru’ si ne trimitea in oras ca „dupa doişpe vine miliţia” si mergeam, sau noptile de MAFIA in sala de lectura, serenadele medicinistelor… eh. Istorie, detalii…

Cea mai remarcabila schimbare, a suferit-o insa Caminul 5. Auzeam diverse: „baie in camera“, „2 in camera“, „camere de camere“, „mansarda“. Caminul 5 parca tot timpul a fost mai curat, si aveau flori, si chestii… Eu am stat in 7. Am trecut peste renovare, ca nu eram destul de curios ce si cum. De vreo doua saptamani insa, la un eveniment intern BEST, am ramas peste noapte in camerele care le-am primit pentru eveniment, si am ramas blocat maxim:

  • Termopane la maxim!
  • Parchet pe holuri!
  • Parchet in camere!
  • Camere de supraveghere pe holuri!
  • Mansarda!
  • Baie in camera!!!
  • Mobilier nou!

Si acum sa va spun ce nu mi-a placut:

  • Termopane la maxim – atat de subtiri ca dimineata se auzeau niste pasarele care ciripeau in copaci… Nu, nu era deschis geamul, si nu cred ca trebuie sa va explic cum suna un 35 dimineata la 5:30 cand il ambaleaza un cretin de la RATUC pe Observatorului si cand e somnul mai dulce nu? Si bineinteles, si usile sunt din termopan… macar atat, decat alea de pe vremuri pe care le deschideai impingandu-le cu cheia mai mult decat invartind-o in broasca si apasand pe clanta.
  • Parchet pe holuri – care e pus atat de prost, incat daca ar trece o pisica tiptil tiptil ar suna mai tare ca toba mare de la Fanfara Ciocarlia cu Loredana…
  • Parchet in camere – vezi mai sus…
  • Camere de supraveghere pe holuri – ca sa ce?! Big Brother?
  • Mansarda – Nu era gata… (Se lucreaza de un an la caminul ala, daca nu mai bine)
  • Baie in camera – drept urmare, camerele sunt mult mai mici: incap linistit 2 paturi, si doua mese, eventual 4 paturi daca le supraetajezi, de frigider nu va mai faceti iluzii, poate pe hol langa dulapul minuscul in care incap 2 tricouri si un gel de dus. Eventual si periuta de dinti, daca ai numai una. Ah! Si toata „baia” e din termopan… NETRANSPARENT perversilor!
    • Dus – Asta e bine, doar ca nu ai cum sa te speli fara sa tii cumva jetul pe unul din peretii de termopan, deci ZGOMOT frate. Si dimineata zgomotul doare. Sa nu va spun ca e o vanita mica patrata acolo, nu ai cum sa nu faci dus fara sa nu uzi *tot* in cutia aia care se numeste baie, si evident dupa ce termini sa te dusezi, sau dai cu mopul, sau cari 10 kile de apa in camera pe parchetul ala frumos.
    • Lavoar – asta e chiar bine… nu am nimic de comentat aici. E o chiuveta, e destul de mare, good for them!
    • Toaleta – Nu a fost cazul, dar va dati seama ca e acolo, o buda care o sa puta prin toate lipiturile alea de termopan care nu prea exista. Si nu ma refer ca nu o sa isi faca oamenii curat, doamne fereste, dar mai vine unu deranjat la stomac, si atunci tine-te bine!
  • Mobilier nou – paturi misto(4), saltele relaxa, etajere, 2 mese, si un dulap minuscul. Dupa remodernizare, abia mai ai loc sa te invarti in camera…

M-am tampit eu sau sunt si puncte bune?! Am stat doar o noapte, e adevarat, dar parca preferam baia aia pe palier, la ce e acum acolo. Sunt foarte curios de niste reactii de la oameni care stau efectiv acolo.

PS: Nu e o gluma de 1 Aprilie…

Omleta cu pirati, rom si catzele

Is de aproape 20 de ore la birou, tura din aia lunga si criminala, si asteptand mirificii colegi cu chei la purtator si masina in parcare sa mergem pana in Valahia sa infulecam un platou din ala sanatos, am trecut prin RSS Reader, am terminat repede ca nu au avut oamenii inspiratie, si apoi am inceput sa o iau razna prin blogroll’uri si commenturi aiurea.

Peste ce credeti ca am dat? peste o Cătza’ cu o reteta incredibila ce mi-a activat toate reflexele pavloviene de imi saliveaza care este si anume cavitatea bucala mai rau ca servetelele umede. Ce reteta? pai cum ce reteta? click ACI! ca vad ca si stilul de scriere l-am preluat de foame. Ca altfel, io nu scrie chiar asa. Nuah ii uram bun venit in reader, si impletim dejtele sa aungem la masa *azi!*

Din seria partyurilor cu nebuni si nebunii, sambata seara am fost la Josh, adica in Le General,  unde am stins becurile si am aprins lumanarile intre 20 – 21, ca ora pamantului a fost peste noi, si am avut si fluturasi; am asistat la o dubla zi de nastere si anume a lui Bogdan Fetita si Vlad KooKool, si pe langa toate astea, a fost si “Pirate’s Party”, promotie de la Captain Morgan Rum (Please drink responsibly!) cu capitanul langa noi, un cufar fara de comoara, cu tricouri si bandane, si niste “morganette” cu fuste scurte si picioare lungi… Va dati seama ca toata lumea cauta comori ascunse nu?!

Drept urmare doi linkuri pe  YouTube:

Si  ceva poze…

Nudismul, sau dezbracatul in public

Lorand R. Minyo mi-a transmis o leapsa destul de personala, pe care nu prea am cum sa o refuz, ca mi-am cerut-o cu lumanarea. Sa ii spunem exercitiu de curaj.

La fel cum zice si el, mai jos au sa apara chestiuni personale, indecente, x-rated sau oricum altfel vreti voi sa le spuneti. Nu o sa va trimit pe disney.com ca stiu ca nu o sa mergeti, si o sa incepeti sa cititi cu interes ce scrie mai jos.  Dar, aduceti-va aminte: daca cititi, o faceti pe propria raspundere, si nu puteti folosi nimic de mai jos impotriva mea!

Explicatie scurta, ulterior adaugata:

Corina: si dupa ce se face leapsa aia?
Corina: care-i regula?
Corina: scrii 100 si ceva de chestii … jenante more or less despre tine ?
.marius: nu
.marius: se ia lista respectiva,
.marius: si se boldeaza chestiile care le-ai facut.
.marius: si is 200 fix…

MacGyver vs O’Neill

richarddean.jpgI’m a very big fan of Richard Dean Anderson as you might know from reading my posts, and me ranting about Stargate SG1 or Atlantis, and I am very disappointed that people around me don’t get the t-shirt joke. It’s about MacGyver, a show that aired between 1985 and 1992 where using science and his wits, rather than violence, MacGyver could solve almost any problem. The action-adventure format addressed social issues as well, and MacGyver became a role model praised by critics, parents, and teachers alike.  MacGyver continues to enjoy tremendous popularity around the world.

The fact that people don’t understand the joke culminated this weekend on St Patricks Day, when I was wearing it, and when someone said “Hey man, cool t-shirt!”  I asked: “But do you know who MacGyver is?!” and the reply was “Well, I guess it’s some irish dude…

That being said, I’m just sorry that many people missed out MacGyver’s adventures,  and the (life) lessons he taught. Forget the joke, that’s nothing… I just know I learned a lot from that character.

And now, a funny clip called “The funniest Stargate SG-1 prank”. Practically Samantha Carter just trashes RD Anderson’s character. I’m always rotfl‘ing when I see it.

La Pescuit

Din seria tricourilor interesante, vi-l prezint pe Radu, colegul meu de la SimpliQ, un nebun si jumatate:

img00221.jpg img00223.jpg

Tot azi, cu masina prin Piata Pacii, un militian era la dat din antebrat ca sa mearga totul bine, si mi-a ramas pe retina o dscutie intre doi oameni care stateau in spate:

Diana (Cu varicela…): De ce e politaiu’ asta aici?

ThotY (cu IGREC): Era prea fluenta circulatia..

Si, ca sa terminam in forta, un banc genial via Mircea Vadan:

Sambata dimineata m-am trezit devreme, m-am imbracat in liniste, mi-am pregatit un pachet cu mancare pentru pranz, am luat cainele, am mers apoi tiptil pana in garaj si am atasat barca la Jeep si am pornit la drum.
Spre disperarea mea, la iesire din garaj am observat ca afara era o vijelie de nedescris, ploaie amestecata cu fulgi de zapada, vantul sufla cu peste 95km/h. Am revenit cu masina in garaj si am pornit radioul. La stiri se anunta ca vremea se va inrautati in continuu.M-am intors in casa. M-am dezbracat inapoi in liniste si m-am strecurat in pat langa sotia mea soptindu-i la ureche:
– E o vreme ingrozitoare afara.
Ea a raspuns somnoroasa :
– Iti vine sa crezi ca sotul meu idiot e la pescuit pe furtuna asta.

Un zambet, o palma!

Iar luni, inca o saptamana de lucru, inca o primavara, inca un martisor…

Acum o saptamana sau doua, mergeam spre casa, intr-un 30 atat de gol incat aproape imi lipsea mirosul de naftalina emanat de pensionari dimineata in inghesuiala de la primele ore. Mai erau in autobuz inca 3 persoane. O femeie plictisita langa un copil care facea ce facea si isi lipea nasucul de geamul mizerabil, si o tipa pe la 20 de ani, imbracata decent, fara fite de Obsession, cu privirea pierduta undeva in luminile metropolei. Soferul, regele soselelor, imi cam facea probleme cu tinutul de bara, ne zguduia nevoie mare si asculta o muzica populara a la tezaur folcloric de pe vremea raposatului.

Ajungem prin Parcul Central,  si vad cu coada ochiului domnisoara cum se ridica, si se pregateste sa coboare. Vine spre usa din mijloc incercand sa isi pastreze echilibrul, incet, incet, se agata de bara de sprijin de langa mine, si inainte cu 10 metri de statie, evident frana mult asteptata. Se dezechilibreaza, si ma impinge un pic. Primul contact vizual… se imbujoreaza instant pana in varful urechilor, zambesc, zambeste, is cere scuze abia soptind, si coboara.

Soferul sodomizeaza in continuare cutia de viteze a masinii, si inainte sa inchida usile, intr-o fractiune de secunda  inainte sa se auda huruitul motorului, vad ciumpalacul de cartier, pantofi cu toc in fata, blugi “uzati” si geaca “Harrisson” din piata Marasti,  cum isi arunca tigara cu un gest sictirit si de undeva din fundu’ gredinii cum ar zice un bun prieten, ii arde o palma fetei… “Cine-i ala?!?” aratand spre mine…

Eu raman blocat, fata isi culege plasa de jos, autobuzul pleaca…

Anul acesta e an bisect. O “traditie” spune ca fetele dau baietilor martisoare in anii bisecti.

Bâiguieli de duminica seara.

Aproape 2 ani de zile am avut UPC,  si tot auzeam lumea ca se plange in dreapta si in stanga “nu imi merge”, “se deconecteaza”, “nu pot sa downloadez” bla bla. In doi ani de zile, am avut parte de 5 – 6 deconectari, care s-au rezolvat cu o resetare de modem, sau asteptat maxim jumatate de ora sa isi revina. Banda acceptabila, peering frumos etc. Singura chestie care m-a deranjat era ca trebuia sa platesc si abonamentul TV in pachet, dar pana la urma, cu un TV Tuner s-a rezolvat si problema asta. Am fost mai norocos decat altii? Se pare ca da. De cateva zile insa, am inceput sa vad un comportament extrem de aiurea din partea UPC’ului. Pe scurt, merge ca p#%@…

Momentan la birou, mergem pe conexiunea secundara, EuroWeb, care evident se misca total aiurea. Acasa am RDS acum. Fiberlink. Denumirea  frumoasa pentru PPPoE. Deja m-au enervat intr-o zi cu conectivitate extrem de aiurea, dar in rest merge bine. Si e mai ieftin 😉

Un individ a cumparat NightBuyers.eu si a facut o mica clona la NightBuyers.ro.  As merge pana acolo incat sa ii zic retard, dar a facut o miscare inteligenta. Sa ii stea in gat.

Stargate Atlantis a fost iar degeaba saptamana asta. Vreau Jericho! si 24! intre timp, ma delectez cu Jeremiah.

Am fost in Iulius sambata si am gasit o geaca misto la Sprider, dar  era ultima. S-a dus…

Si as mai avea multe de rantuit acum, dar am prea mult de lucru… un cretinel s-a gandit sa exploateze o vulnerabilitate dintr-un cluster de servere, si a reusit sa modifice toate fisierele index.* Am un fisier text de 8.8MB cu locatiile fisierelor afectate… 🙁 auch!

Yahoo Messenger 9, BETA

msg9_b1_client_4.jpgAt first, let me say that BETA this, BETA that, I’m getting sick of all the BETA… Everybody is using the word BETA slammed on anything, or any kind of software, website and so on… but enough ranting.

Yahoo Messenger, is quite a popular piece of software nowadays. I like it and I don’t like it. I have to use it for work, and beats the hell out of ticket systems, when communication is real time, but I hate using it in personal matters… all the smiley’s and emoticons in the world, won’t give it that “personal” feeling a nice face to face conversation brings, or even a phone call.

I found out today via an3i.ro that the guys over at Yahoo managed to get to version 9 of the Yahoo Messenger. I wasn’t able to download it, and play with it. They have a nice movie showing off the new stuff they implemented. Lots of it useless in my opinion, but it’s the eye candy that does the trick. I just wish they did something with the Linux version also, but in the meanwhile, never mind, Pidgin is here!
You can see the video here.

Later Edit: Downloaded, installed, looks dandy… nice themes, I don’t like the detailed list features, I prefer single row / contact. Same old commercial at the bottom, and they didn’t do anything to the archive, and that’s a disappointment. They don’t show your name or your friend’s name on every line they type, which is cool, but I’m too tired right now… going to sleep.
