Honey, beep me if you love me!

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…

Trivia: In Australia(also known for US citizens as: “There be kangaroos”), beeping is known as “pranking”: Prank me if you want me to pick you up… and so on…

de ras… de plans…

Bancul zilei:

Pana de curent intr-un MALL…

4 persoane blocate in lift si 2 blonde pe scara rulanta…

via Ovidiu 🙂

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…


Melodia zilei – Helloween – If I could fly.

Vanzari en-gros si en-detail…

Am hotarat sa transform azi blogul intr-un site de intermediere trafic de carne vie…

Va rog cititi, si va minunati:



Asta bineinteles dupa ce ieri, domnisoara oferita spre vanzare azi, sus numita “cover girl” oferea spre vanzare pe jos numitul “mascul delta”…



Bineinteles, povestirea este fictiva, orice asemanare cu realitatea nu va fi recunoscuta de autorul blogului sau persoanele… “asemanate”

Later Edit: Daca cineva este interesat(a) in masculul delta, si este dispus(a) sa il ia fara masina, primesc comision!! (YAY!)

Even Later Edit: Razboiul continua…



And yet another edit: Beware for tomorrow… the suppliers promise some nice incentives with the products… 😉


lina_logo_only.pngNo 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!!!!

A presentation worth a billion smileys…

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.

Check it out on http://docs.google.com.

And the billion dollar costs come from AdSense where false clicks generate a loss for Google. Rad more about it here

Manipulare cu manipula

Nu va lasti indusi in eroare de titlul articolului, nu vreau sa scriu nimic despre manipulare azi. DA! recunosc! manipularea exista, am fost manipulat, si am manipulat la randul meu…

Acest post se refera insa la un mic “bug” in softul celor de la Piata de la A la Z online. Va las sa cititi singuri…


Clicky zi imaje… for bigar varjion… (or whatever… )

Toaleta publica…

Unele chestiuni sunt prea interesante/sinistre/distractive sau ce alte adjective mai vreti voi sa folositi ca sa nu fie postate.

Incepem cu un banc sec:

Maria spala linistita rufe pe malul raului …Deodata o stanca se desprinde din munte , cade peste maria si o striveste.

Ion priveste in scarba scena si spune:

“Alta masina de spalat distrusa de calcar …”

Si apoi o imagine perversa… 😉


Websites: new, old, useful, funny etc.

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.

And of course, now I got bored, and I’m leaving the list open… Do you want me to add some stuff here? post a comment.

Ma tu confunzi sperma cu undele radio!

Deci nu cred mah.. NU CRED!

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.”

In alt ordine de idei, o piesa cu niste versuri care te lovesc direct la corazon:

Un nou inteles al ideii “ElChupaCabra”:

And last, but not least, de departe cel mai “interesant” a fost: http://forum.softpedia.com/index.php?showtopic=197426&st=0

Sa nu cumva sa ratati ultmul link, cireasa de pe tort, ca e de vis. De aici vine si titlul postului evident…
