I decided to pass my trusty old computer down to my son. Before doing so I decided it needs some cleaning up. It was mostly used for running in Linux the past years, and Windows 10 was installed just in case. A tiny issue with it, that there is something fishy with this pre-windows 8… Read More Saga of Installing Windows on Acer TravelMate 8473
After using my phone for a few years, it started to act up. First of all random reboots started, then the whole phone slowed down so much, that even the simplest applications took a minute to start. I decided to give it a good clean factory reset. It did however become a bit more complicated… Read More Recover lost speed of an Android phone (THL T11)
The companies starting transformation programs are usually showing the Dunning-Kruger effect in motion, as they progress.
They start with ignorant goal setting, and as the understanding increases, fear sets in. Too bad it’s always too late to do anything about it then. By the time the company overcomes the effects of the program it’s ignorance raises high enough to start a new program.… Read More Perils of transformation programs
IBM Hungary together with Atoll Technologies, have started the IBM ECM user group, where the users of IBM’s ECM technology portfolio can have a conversation of the possibilities.
The three main presentations were about a real-life case study in ECM, an overview of ECM maturity in Hungary, and an interesting use of data analytics, the Information Lifecycle Governance.… Read More IBM ECM user group breakfast
I just ventilated some of the frustration about lazy and worthless recruiters in a previous article. To prove a point, today I’ve received the emblematic call, where the caller committed so many of the annoying mistakes, I was not even annoyed by it, it was amazing! (Sorry about misusing the meme)… Read More How to commit annoying mistakes in a cold call
They say you cannot teach old dogs new tricks. It has been proven wrong many times, but the idea is, that once you have your own ways, it’s hard to deviate from them.
Last summer I had plenty of time for experimentation. I’ve also had an old development idea I wanted to take on the road for some time. As I was very much stuck in the world of the Java enterprise, I decided to give the “new age” methodologies/technologies a go. I’ll summarize the stages I’ve taken to learn, create and refactor the architecture to it’s current, still non-final stage.
This article will show how the architecture of such a small project evolved from complex to even more complex stages, to reach a very simple final state.… Read More Old dogs and new technologies
This is the sixth post in my attempt to start a blogging habit. When you mail order something really cheap from China, you must prepare to make compromises, or even some modifications. That was the case with this HDMI to VGA converter as well.
Interesting how much effect the new posts have on my blog’s otherwise quite feeble statistics. Well even though it looks nice, it’s still too low to deduct anything about it, and I consider the increase a statistical error. If this trend continues, I might reach and maybe break my all time top of 54… Read More Trends in my blog views
I really hated having to switch languages, when I switched to writing from Hungarian and English. Many times I was writing mail, or working on an article in English, when a Hangouts message popped up where I had all my words underlined by the English spellchecker. Finally after over a year in progress, guys at Google… Read More Google chrome finally supports multi-lingual spell checking
This is the third article in my 21 day blogging marathon. It is not quite as polished, as it could be. Join the marathon by adding meaningful comments all the way! I got myself a Mercury MW3030R router from China a couple of weeks ago. It’s a dual band router, which can actually reach speeds… Read More Translating Chinese router’s UI
