End of 2005 summary

Saturday, December 31, 2005

This day marks the end of 2005...wonder when that time man invented calendar did his thought account into the meaning of the first day and the last day of the year. Or is it thru the occuring cycle that pathetic man feel that they wasted a year of their life and then begin to mark the first day to set goals and objectives and the last day to see if they fulfilled what they set.

The year 2005 seems like an eventful year for me. I glad to say I have completed my degree, now awaiting for a module grade to be published in feb next year. Been a ride in my job, my ex-company go busted and got merged into another company but I didn't really like the environment there and switch to my current company. My current company was nice, the people were great, if only the bosses are a bit more appreciative.... Past few months had been blogged down by many jobs and projects that I can't breath by my nose...

Lately in the latter part of the year got a few freelance projects which also attribute to lesser postings on my blog...Last but not least just last month, my sister give birth to a baby boy earlier than expected, making me have a nephew.

Looking back there's really a lot of ups and downs, good times, bad times but never the less we all will have to ride through time. Wishing all a happy new year for the coming year 2006.

A story about a fish and the water.

Saturday, December 24, 2005

In the water there lives a fish. The water love the fish and showered the fish with lots of care and warmth. Yet the fish fell in love with the blue sky above the water. One day the fish was in tears and told the water that you never see me cry cause I am in the water. The water replied "I can't see you crying but I can feel your tears as you are embraced in my heart."

Heaven play a fool on me

Wednesday, December 07, 2005

Heaven like to play a fool on me....

Two years ago I was teaching a supposedly IT-proficient person A on how to parse a csv file into a table based on certain rules. And two years back here, I am back at this circle, teaching another person B from the same country who is of person A and is also supposedly to be IT-proficient this same trick.

And the scenario...

Rewinding back to 2 years ago...the source code and all were there, Mr. A can 1) read the source code and decipher what it's about or 2) ask people who wrote the code on how it works. Fortunately for him, he have the luxury of the 2nd option. Of course I'm also kind enough to provide him on how the flow works out and definitely other than me another fren/colleague also gave him hints and assistance. However in the end if I recall correctly, he did managed to get it working but with a lot of errors here and there, that someone have to clean the piece of code.

2 years after, at a new place from the above this interesting scenario surfaced up again! Well it was tasked to Mr B, however the coding has to be done in object-oriented style and no sample code for him. BUT on the internet there is some sample code provided if you look around. Hmm... initially don't understand how this processing work, but with bits of explaination and showing the way to google, this guy found some code. However, he wasn't able to adapt it to what he want to use. Similiarly as above, errors and bugs occured here and there, and I have to clean them up to make it work.

Interesting questions that I really wonder...
1) Do I speak alien language that they don't understand what I am talking? When I see the error, I know what's happenning and it's becoz they don't understand what's needs to be done correctly. And probably you reader out there might be thinking, maybe instruction is not given clearly. Nope, the clearest instruction is given, ie: A = B or transform A to B...
2) Why do they take up this occupation in the first place?
3) How do they pass the test and interview?
4) Lastly, if this is passed to a local who is a fresh grad, would the situation be entirely different?

Oh God, can you spare me this joke for the third time if possible, I don't know if I can take this joke again...
