This week, there was nothing really special to mention until now. I set up a few Computers, a new user and so on and so forth. The basic stuff.
Sine the last few days wasn’t much going on, I decided to create some 3D logos. First I designed my Nytron logo in 3D and then I printed it. My boss Robin directly searched for the logo of the National Museum Northern Ireland; NMNI because he said my logo looks really good. I customized the logo with Adobe Illustrator, designed it in 3D and finally printed it. Along with Konrad I tried to paint it with sponges and spray cans. The result isn’t perfect but it’s okay.
Oh, and I made a time lapse video while it printed the Nytron logo.
Because everybody liked the logos I began to create nameplates for Robin and our colleague Gareth. Also these were a success! The next day Gareth showed us his nameplate because his girlfriend painted it colorful. Not bad!
The next few days I spent creating some models. For example: Dog tags.
Apart from that I installed and encoded a laptop and changed some cables. On my virtual Windows servers I changed the network cards from 1Gbit to 10Gbit because my storage is faster than 125MB/s.
Today I was responsible again for data restores. Yesterday I had many cases, where I can’t found the data the customers wanted. They came back about 3 to 4 times. When a user loses really important data he needs to get it back. But sometimes „Lost Data and rising to the challenge“ weiterlesen
I was really cocky the first few weeks. I thought I understood the Belfastians very well. I understood Sean, Josh and the most of the other people in the bureau very clearly. But then, this one Clarity guy appeared and my ego was put to rest. I did not grasp any of what this man said at all. Gladly, he talked to Sean and/or Stuart (boss of DATACTICS) most of the time. I can still see myself: standing in close proximity, smiling, nodding and acting like I’m understanding every word. I faked it well. „Understanding and speaking Belfastian“ weiterlesen
