The box

Bought a new toy .. and since i´m a seasoned network tech i read on the outside of the box ..  ROUTER .. yes indeed .. thats what i needed… I´m starting to get my upstairs work office done and want to get the big server up and chatting to the rest of toys downstairs. Started to assemble the cables and got the config page up … the guys developing at D-Link obviously must have a bad day … No possibility to add routing tables .. no possibility at all … just a button to set it up as either an AP or a Router … it should fix the routing by itself the manual proudly shouted ..

Yes it was on sale .. yes it was the cheapest stuff in the store .. 

But in my defense .. it said ROUTER on the box.. I´m now the proud owner of a plastic thingy barely able to route packages from one interface to another .. i suppose it works as AP .. but i already had one of those …

My thinking is that marketing have more saying in the box design than the developers.. and thats wrong !!


Projectmanaging and workflow

Yesterday i was asked if i know what Dev Ops is … and i vaguely remembered i worked with it in cooperation with Fujitsu some years ago. My recollection was that it might had been a program for change-management. I was totally wrong .. or was i ?.
After checking i found out it is about change-management but also developing .. but its not a program, it is more a structure for how to work.
So .. this got me thinking a bit ..

Now when i am player on the one man consultant market it will be totally impossible to keep the methods and education bit up to date. I done the lean, the itil and the scrum .. right down to the flower power stuff in the 80´s when you learned how to juggle colored balls and smile at different colored lamps… yes … the early days of education in project managing was dependent on what you smoked .. or rather what the founder of the strategy smoked. All of those with different names and adopted by multinational companys to get validation.

My thinking is … Different methods but very much similar in the backbone, its like Microsoft releasing new office suites .. put all menus in a bowl… shake .. compile .. release .. get paid.

Well .. Thats quite harsh .. of course they improve with time as everything 🙂

The new site ..

You can always wonder what the reasons are .. and from what planet people originate. I do !

Obviously some of them are from a place far away and the thoughts travelling through their minds are too advanced for us earthlings to understand.

So lets start over …. I’m to stubborn to let them win. Crappy hackers ..


End of the bad day

We took a shortcut to Liden. Fourty kilometers of gravel. Now the Zuzuki did suddenly develop a ticking sound that got louder than the exhaust… And still consuming oil. Most likely something in the head is broken.. Yes.. On the bike i mean

Rest of the bad day.

We went to Sollefteå. Stefan had by then discovered the bad schrimps..Medical stuff was meeded so we bought Jägermeister.

Day one continued

After filling the zuzuki with oil we went to check the Tai temple down by the river… And had some coffie..Stefan had a schrimp sandwich

Day two

One of those bikes contain no oil…the italian horror is fetch some…there must be a farmer around here somewhere

First evening.

Never heard so many “funny” noises from a bike as i did today. Had a short session with a spanner and stopped at least the exhaust from falling off. Stefan has burned the decals over the exhaust to crisp… The only bike without problem seems to be the Ducati


Finally….we are going

Was a bit of a trouble to get everybody awake.. and to strap the things to the bikes. No extras was allowed so that means,, no luggagesystems.
