Today, we are finished with our database. Certainly the beta version. This week we have removed errors and created the login option. We give the database Peter, who is testing the database. Then, on Monday he tells us, how good our bad it is. I think, there is still work in the last week.
Furthermore, I have designed a new logo for Computer Doctor, which is still not finished. By the way, Computer Doctor will also change its name.
That’s what I have done.
See you next time!
were not really exciting. On thursday we stayed at home because we are goint out now (Friday). This is our last Weekend so we are going to enjoy it ALOT! At work I got the Website ready but John wants more details changed… I think it will not go online as long as I’m available at bloomBPO to change things.
Today I programmed noting, was just having a look at the CSS files and fixing some small bugs, had a talk to John and was saying goodby to my french college as it was his last day at bloom today.
C u in 7 Days
For the last 2 days I can’t report a lot, because till today I was sick and I couldn’t go to work. Nevertheless I followed the tight victory from Germany against Ghana at the apartment of Marco and Alex. The other peers of my apartment followed the game in our favourite pub for FIFA World Cup games. At Saturday we want to go to the coast again, but this time on the other side, I hope the weather will be clear.
I very much look forward to get home!
Greetz to Germany and Belfast.
Hello to everybody,
For some reason my laptop didn’t boot yesterday and I really don’t know why. I used the True Crypt Recovery CD and now it is working fine, so it should be something to do with the boot loader.
Today I have to reinstall another computer to get it working fine. I don’t think that this will take me the whole day, therefor I can use my time to complete the registration for the Cisco competition and to check all e-mails from the OSZ-IMT to get to know what things I have to do here before I leave Ireland. I started to lean for the competition yesterday, but it is very difficult to get me to deal with the Cisco CCNA stuff again and again. Will it never stop?
Hopefully it’s not without success.
That’s just a short explanation of what I’m dealing with right now at work. Since Yesterday I am „on site“. That means that I take care of problems concerning customer’s networks. Yesterday I had to configure a Cisco Router and a Firewall to provide secure Internet access. I also established a VPN tunnel to the head office of the company. It took about 4 hours to realize it, but finally it was working.
Today I am on a different customer site. I reconfigured the firewall here as well. I had to change the external IP address because their old one was on the black list caused by spam mails originating from their server, which hast been hacked before. But it is all fine now. As you can see the internet is working right now. The internet at our house at home is not working sufficiently so I just write the article from here. The next one will be on sunday, because it will be a busy weekend for me. I think all of us is dealing with all the different papers and sheets we have to fill out for the oszimt and the projects.
Let’s see if we can provide all requested documents until we come back :).
Leo: I was just upset about Mr. Bavar writing to all of us as a group and tagging the Mail to CC. That could defenitely lead to trouble with our companies.
I don’t think that all of us aren’t writing enough Blog entries. It’s just a few.
So sry for my aggressive comment dude…
I know everyone of you see the match Germany against Ghana and Ozils superb strike! Not a really good performance by N11 but who cares?! We are trough and will face England! Just have a quick look at the UK newspaper today:
„Prepare for GERM WARFARE! – Ozil sets up England blockbuster“
„And so, its Germany in the Last 16“
„Capello: ‚We’ve lost our fear factor‘ (Does he know it’s Germany next?)“
„Ghana 0 Germany 1: Ozil stunner sets up dream second round clash with England“
„The good news: England are through The bad news: It’s Germany up next“
„WWII RELOADED! England against Germany!“
„England against Germany. Penalties anyone?“
„Germany have old enemy in their sights – EUROPE’S OLD firm meet again. Germany’s dubious reward for this tight victory over Ghana is a meeting with England on Sunday afternoon in Bloemfontein.““
Everyone here at work are glad to see the match on sunday and the most of them supports Germany (or the oppenent of England). France are out, Germany will face England, it seems as if the world cup finally going to get started!
PS: The Sun isn’t a reliable newspaper but their articles about Germany are very funny and ironic. So if you have a dark sense of humor, read the full article. It’s worth reading!
„[…] But our boys can clock them out – as long as it does not go down to penalties.“
At work I do the usual. Together with Chris I inspect websites for bugs, mark them, open tickets for new ones, describe them and close them off if they are fixed.
What I learned about how this is done is quite valuable. The programmers program something and test it on their development environments.
Afterwards they push that stuff to a test environment where the test division tests the new things. Then the first bugs are raised already, checked, fixed and closed again. Afterwards depending on how big the site is, the changes or new things are either pushed to the live version directly and then rechecked again or if it is one of the big sites, they are pushed to the release environment. On the release environment they are tested again, fixed and finally we approve of it to be pushed live.
About private things: Of course I have been watching the first two Germany games in a pub with my roommates.
I am glad to have Chris with me at my company. He works much faster than I do and helps me out alot. Thanks to him we finished our tasks so fast that we had a few days on which we hadn’t to do much so we could learn about Cisco (Chris) or Java (me) or check out other things on the web.
On those occasions I read about self developement, about setting and reaching goals and about becoming the best self you can possibly be. I think in the long run this is more valuable than reading about Java or something related to work.
This is what I wanted to share with you in my big blog entry but if you are afraid that i’ll embarrass you/us/the Afib, then I won’t publish it on this platform. I’ll do that somewhere else so the ones who are ready for a change in their ways of thinking won’t miss out.
PS: To all who will be travelling to Ireland or any other country in the future, make sure you bring a camera. I didn’t bring one because I couldn’t afford one but I tell you, without a camera you can’t make pictures and keep all your lovely memories in a picture. So make sure to bring a camera!
Kind regards, Leo
don’t be too hard on me David 😉
Basically I wanted to make up for not writing a single blog entry in two weeks.
Now I have gotten three comments already not to publish my magnum opus. And from the tone of the comments I guess you are pretty upset too.
I apologize if you feel that I embarrassed us. I’ll publish it somewhere else.
Kind regards, Leo
The Sunday was exciting again. I was in Bray with Tino, my colleague. Bray located on the coast, in the south of Dublin.
We drove there with the DART. We went along the beach, is a bad beach, because the beach is a very stony beach. And the water is not very cold, but it is like a sludge, many algae. Then we went to the mountian called Bray Head. Certainly we want to see the city from the top of the mountian, because it was very nice weather. Well, we climbed the mountain, which was 241 metres high. During the way we have already seen the beautiful landscape.
On the top was 360° awesome view.
On the top I have bathed in the sun and then we have choosen another way down to the city.
