Hi there,

Because of our HSDPA Internet Access being unstable over the last days, I wrote this article at work. Work seemes to become more and more interesting but I haven’t done anything special this week. The most common jobs comming through are concerned with preparing Computer Systems to further utilisation by the technicians on site. In a nutshell: Installing Windows, configuring it, adding and applying some remote tools etc.

I’m looking forward to enjoying the weekend again. On Wednesday one of the spanish guys that we share our house with, throws a party because this is his last week in Belfast. Yesterday they all startet to cook for this event and OMG, they’re good at it. Miguel made some spanish omelet using a recipe of his mom and it tasted great. The best omelet I’ve ever eaten.

After Pablo (the guy who leaves us) left his room, we can use it for guests visiting, like Sebastian’s or my girlfriend. Hopefully there is nobody moving in until my girlfriend’s coming. But if anyone of the guys in Dublin wants to come over for a weekend we can use the room as well.

I stupidly forgot the camera again, so I cant upload any pictures right now. I know that my arcticles seem to be very boring, but I don’t care ;). Let’s see if anything interesting happens until the next annoying arcticle appears…

goodbye for now

Big history…

Hey boys and girls (:,
haven’t much to tell right now. But to keep you all informed I’ll tell some generally things.
At the weekend I’ve been bored and tired, truly not the best conditions to go out for party and meeting new people.
But at friday evening we’ve went to the Botanic Inn and afterwards to Laverys. As far as I realized, nothing special happend there.
At Saturday we’ve played Poker (David, Sebastian, Oliver, Bartosz and me), drunk a few pins of beer and talked ‚till 3 or 4am.
We’ve also done a small BBQ at sunday for chilling and enjoying the weather.

the great BBQ

Sorry guys, would like to be able to tell you more fascinating stuff…

My first working week

Hey all,

here some infos about my job in Belfast. I’m working in the Northern Irish Goverment as an IT Assist. At first my tasks were similar to the work at the Charité, I have changed an old switch with a new cisco switch and solve a problem with a printer which wouldn’t get an IP. But I haven’t admin rights, so an employee must help me sometimes 😉 Since last wednesday I have these rights also and I’ve got a new task, I’ve to set up a network with 11 routers and 2 switches. It’s like a challenge because the routing protocol is BGP over MPLS and this is part of the CCNP. So I have to try out on my own and it doesn’t work by now =D I hope that I can solve the problem these week.

cheers, Ric
