Insight Outside

Or is it inside out? That’s sushi.

Work is not sushi – most of the time – however it is giving me interesting insights. Nothing I can post of course. Haha. Had you there for a second, didn’t I?

There’s some insight for you.

I am learning new things every day. Mostly from mistakes – not all of them mine. And then there’s King Henry – a classic so to speak.

Most important: communication, transparency, traceability … (I could write a post about jira at this point, or I could just make sushi from my work, just give me a sharp knife, there’s enough raw fish for everyone)

And most important: don’t post on your blog late @ night when you cannot sleep.

PS: I preordered Season 2 tonight. Season 3 is starting soon.

Schlechtes Gewissen?

Ich stieg im 2. Stock in den Fahrstuhl um in den Keller zu fahren.
Ich dachte: “Für 3 Stockwerke, das lohnt ja kaum!”
Im 1. Stock stieg jemand zu, der ins Erdgeschoss wollte.


For you it is drama. Something to fuss about.

For me it is just another moskito bite I am trying to ignore.

You are like the child crying for help without cause. One day … nobody will come running.

Is it friday?

wasting timeThis is what happens when somebody accidentally adds the complete company to some mailinglist and writes a “Test” mail to that list.

All in all it was about 60+ mails that everybody received until the wave of office spam was stopped. Of course it took a technical intervention to achieve this, once the trolls are out it is hard to stop them.

I am guessing that there are some more mails going out to those who are still on that list now.

To eat or not to eat – the couch

I found this funny quiz page (I recognized 11 out of 12 snippets of code and could name the correct programming language) and took a quiz:

How Long Could You Survive Trapped In Your Own Home?

I wonder if on the assumed 30kg of food we might have in the house which is a rough and probably incorrect estimate, we could really survive that long.

They ask if you have pets and count them as additional food source and they seem to assume that I will eat my leather jacket and the couch as well. I wonder if when they asked how many people lived in the home they meant everyone besides me to be an additional food source as well …

It’s late and I just watched the movie “Marie Antoinette”.

Update: they also have this nice test. So yes I kind of tend to think now that the survival test assumed that only the person who took the test would survive that long oO (I scored 11 on that last test). The most fun test though is the one I found the page through: the caffeine test. (I scored 148 = Very High – Productive Worker, Jittery)
