"It should work", "It works for me"... Two of the sentences that you should resist saying to your customer or boss (in IT) :)

Can't be bothered to fact check, but I really think it is time the riaa/mpaa died.

I love it when I come into work in the morning to find windows update restarted my machine thus killing my running virtual box and x-session (including a process that was running for 12 hours)

I always forget about windows update!!!

Nope! After some research there is hope yet that in a few more months I can have it running linux  (without performance loss)

If you are all looking for a mockup tool I recommend UXPin.

Not only because it is great, but, because when I was unable to pay via paypal (because PayPal is unable to process UK cards when you live in Germany) they contacted me directly to help arrange an alternative.

On another topic, PayPal should be renamed PayCrap.

Don't you love it when you write a whole chunk of SQL in a SQL viewer's scratchpad area.  Then you do an accidentally huge query that crashes your SQL viewer, subsequently losing all of your work? :) Damn!

Anyone looking for a house in Spain? Or would like to buy it and give it to me as a gift?
 
OK! G+, I really, really need your help! My parents really need to sell their house in Spain asap (and if they can sell it they might be able to help me out with my college fees which would be epic because I am poor, serious), and so I am hoping by the power of Google this link might get spread around a little bit and potentially find a buyer. That would be a very cool story, right? Please help me by sharing, even if you don't care, someone you know might! http://www.coinvillaforsale.com/

So I went to a lot of effort for recruiting a team of developers.

After contacting via linked in, giving a presentation I finally was in the process of arranging phone interviews.

This is what one candidate replied:

"Show me da money and you got me in."

I'm sorry, but, if I put a lot of effort in to track you down and talk to you - and if you are going to be my junior dev - you really shouldn't be quite that rude!

:(

The more I use linkedin the more I realise it is THE social tool for b2b and e2e (employee 2 employee) the more you interact on it, the more your peers can find out about you and your company.  I see it pulling more $ per user than facebook indefinitely.

I call this place Dodgy Chinese because the entrance looks condemned. This is the BEST authentic chinese (can't remember the region) that I've had in Germany. Order C2/C3... amazingly tasty. I am yet to try the more authentic dishes however, too scared!! ;) PS: You know it is good when you are the only non asians eating in there!

A great restaurant, great service, mega tasty! Unfortunately I will never be able to eat here again :( 5 hours after eating I had horrific food poisoning, we believe it was from a poorly prepared lemon (in a corona) as another person did not get sick (from the food) yet another did get sick (who did not eat there but also had a corona with lemon). So, my lesson learned is not trust any prepared foods in cheap german bars :P DEFINITELY VISIT THIS RESTAURANT Just don't show me any more photos of the cuisine as I have already seen it all twice :P
