Continuing the recent started tradition, I’ll start the post with a joke. Of course all the women related jokes can get pretty boring, so I’d say a joke about IT guys would be appropriate today:
The IT department in a medium sized company, the geeks, decide to have a party over the weekend: Geek1: So it’s settled guys, we’re going to have fuuuun! Geek2: SUUURE! I’ll bring the music! Chorus: grrreeeeeaaat! Geek3: I’ll bring the drinks! Chorus: grrreeeeeaaat! UberGeek: I’ll bring the women! Chorus: grrreeeeeaaat! how many can you get? UberGeek: well… about 2 gigabytes…
Having a cell phone is not such a big deal nowadays in Romania. Everyone has one. My parents, my grandparents, my underage cousin and so on. Prepaid, postpaid, shared minutes, flexible minutes, you name it, we have it! Calin Grigore, sent me today a link about cell phones and Africa. Apparently they discovered beeping! Beep me if you want me to pick you up, beep me if you’re thinking about me, beep me once for yes in reply to a text message or twice for no… just beep me. Carriers say that around 30% of the load on the network is because of this beeping. Do you do it? I certainly did! But things are getting tough on the beepers, and they are going to pay for beeping…

Am inceput scoala de soferi azi… Nu mi-a murit motorul decat de 3 ori si am observat ca prindeau franele foarte bine… Parcarea cu spatele, am facut-o, ocupand evident 2 locuri de parcare, prima data, apoi mi-a iesit. Cea laterala cu spatele a fost mai dificila, dar mi-a iesit pana la urma. Un logan diesel, merge aproape singur…
M-am saturat de tribal wars… sau nu atat de tribal wars cat de faptul ca nimeni nu ma ataca, si nu suntem intr-un razboi inca… trebuie sa remediem situatia 😉
Am citit azi pe deceblog.net despre wiki’ul de 1 milion de dolari pe care il gasiti aici. Foarte tare!
Am ras bine de tot saptamana trecuta de imensul hotspot din Piata Unirii din Cluj. Hotspotul exista, se afla, dar nu merge… echipamentul nu aloca IP’uri prin DHCP clientilor care vreau sa se conecteze, implicit bietii oameni stau si se uita la el. Cineva spunea ca s-a platit in avans UPC’ului abonamentul pe urmatorii jdemii` de ani, si de aceea ar fi costat atat, dar UPC’ul a oferit acolo banda gratis… surse sigure, si care nu pot fi dezvaluite… Am aflat si ca daca acest hotspot ar merge, downloadul ar putea fi genial, pentru ca nu exista limitari pe banda respectiva. Pentru cei care se intreaba, eram destul de aproape de antena, incat sa nu fie problema cu discutia dintre placa mea wireless si antena echipamentului… Colac peste pupaza, in toate statiile RATUC din Cluj, ovoce suava de domnita ne anunta ca primaria plus MCTI au facut hotspotul acolo, ne spun si valoarea lui, si toti doritorii pot sa il foloseasca incepand de AZI. Nu conteaza ca cititi acest post saptamana urmatoare, tot de AZI o sa mearga hotspotul…
No no no, it’s not my new girlfriend… It’s a long expected platform for running software with native look and feel on different OS’s…
Their description is quite explanatory:
LINA enables Open Source applications to run on Windows, Mac OS X, and UNIX operating systems with native look and feel. GUI applications running on LINA are indistinguishable from the other applications on the user’s machine because they utilize the native libraries of the underlying operating system. LINA integrates native linux command line applications directly into the DOS, Mac OS X, or UNIX console. The configuration files of Web applications that run on LINA are fully accessible and editable.
It’s quite a nifty thing, and I can’t wait to get home and play with it!!!!
I’m using more and more idiotic titles for my posts, but you’ll get it if you read it carefully…
Starting with a joke from our one and only burning eyes sensation giver Edike, it goes like this:
Q: How do you make a cow bark?!?
A: You return home at 4AM.
Lots of nice news today, some cool, some funny and some weird.
For starters, the smiley : – ) ( 🙂 )is 25 years old. Happy birthday! According to Slashdot professor Scott E. Fahlman from Carnegie Mellon University was the first one to use the three characters to point out a happy face, and since then, everybody uses them. Sounds cool huh? well, the funny part in this is the misspelling on Slashdot, corrected now, but my RSS reader caught it just in time!
Google finally released the long waited presentation feature in their office suite, and I can definitely say they did a great job.
Well, Penn and Teller give it up again with a 12 minutes clip about bottled water. Of course, they are talking about US bottled water, like “Eau du’ Robinet” or “Aqua di culo” but don’t let me spoil it for you… enjoy!
Well, I believe we all have our habits on the web. And by habits, I mean things we do, tools we use, things we laugh at.
I spend most of my day online, due to my line of work and thus I use lots of sites and tools offered by these sites. Also, everyday I get spammed with lots of crap by mail or instant messenger, so I decided to compile a list of sites I visit. Because of the quantit, i decided to add a maximum of 10 links for each category.
One of the primary sites I use everyday, not only for work but for personal use is of course Google: http://www.google.com; Included in this package Gmail, google maps, picasaweb, google reader etc.
http://www.swsoft.com are the developers of Plesk, Virtuozzo, HSPcomplete, Pleask Expand and so on, not-free virtualization software used on many of the servers I administrate, with an incredible amount of information on their forums regarding this software.
http://debianadmin.com contains lots of articles related to Debian and Ubuntu, the Linux distributions I mainly use.
http://tldp.org The Linux Documentation Project – I think the title covers it… 🙂
Am lucrat zilele astea in draci, si din cand in cand am mai dat si cate un click pe unele linkuri primite pe mirobolantul Yahoo Messenger… femei care s-au plictisit de colacele murdare de toaleta si si-au luat … in mana:
Atentie la warningul plasat pe site: “The use of the Urinelle could feel strange at first. Be aware that the tube will feel warm.”
