About D. N.

Student

Hello World

I know that I haven’t been to active lately, but I’m try to find a job as PHP developer. I want to develop an application that can be used to manage task for your employees. Right now is just an ideea and some lines of codes, but in the future maybe is gonna be something usefull for some people.

Recently I took some IKM tests (International Testing Measurement). I did ok, but i thought that the test were pretty ok and very well structured. Also I went to an job interview and took a test there that was very easy, but i was kind of slow and didn’t manage to finish it. I hope that the guys from were I did the interview will accept me in the team.

The week started pretty well, with an training from Apple, with an incredible instructor (Andrei). It was an Ipad workshop, but i wasn’t about the Ipad. It was about how can you take photos with the Ipad and the photos to look good, like they were made with a professional camera. And there was something about the Ipad, how can you put those photos on your tv…but who cared about that (everybody knows about the apple tv). Hope for a wonderful week.

That’s what I did lately, but for the future you will see more activity from me on this blog. If you like it, tell your friends about it, comment on what you like and don’t like so I’ll know how to improve it.

P.S. This is the big 10 .  Let’s see how far we can go.

See you soon. N.D.

The Job II

I told you before my job. This is part 2. A discussion with one of my client made me do this.
I will make it like a short story, so I don’t bore you too much.

At the store it was one of those day’s when the clients kept on coming. We started to be exhausted so Vali (one of our colleague) took a short break. I was with Cristina in the store. We usually are in the store and one at service. Around 6.30 I saw him entering the store. How he looked it doesn’t matter, but he was in his early 40, normal height and normal constitution.

(ME ) Hello.

(Customer ) Hi. I have a question for you. Do you know about social networks?

(ME ) Yeah, I know a little bit.

(Customer ) Ok, I have to ask you something about facebook.

(Other Customers) Sorry, but do you have the usb cable for IPhone 5?

(ME) No, right now we don’t have it in stock.

(Other Customer) Thanks…

(Customer ) This customers have no shame. But..whatever..

My question was : “someone responded to one of my messages something like this : Thannnkkkkksssss and a big smiley face. What do you thing? The message was sent at 1 in the night and it said there that it was send from X”

(Me ) I don’t know, probably someone was thanking you for something.

(Customer) Do you think? I think it was something said at fun, to make fun of me. why did she write the message so long?

(Me ) I don’t know. This is here way to show you that she was excited by the message.

(Customer) Yeah? Do you think so? But what about that smiley face?

(Me) It’s just an emoticon…it show emotion through the internet.

(Customer) Do you think? But why it was so big?

(Me) That is how they look on facebook.

(Customer) Can you show me on one of this computers?

(Me) Ok…

And this discussion went on… It took me about 15 minutes to convince him that the message was serious. Why would you go to an IT guy to ask him about your discussion on facebook? I understand that you were left behind by tehnology, but don’t go and make a fool of yourself. Ask that person what she ment. The end of the discussion was:

(Me ) I think that you better ask her what she meant..

(Customer ) I think I will. But what will she think.. I don’t know if that’s a good ideea.

(Me) I don’t know. I’m a IT consultant…

(Customer ) Yeah…sure. Thanks for the help.( On a sarcastic tone) I took enough of your time.

He left like i was the jerk.

Sometimes, the people that come in out store amaze me. He kept telling me that he think that she was drunk whe she sent that message. I’m a IT consultant not a fucking love guru.

What did you do lately?

How are you?

I’m good too. Last night I went to a concert, mainly because a work mate’s band was playing. I wasn’t expecting to be that fun. The music was great. Space clinic  (the band that i was talking about) played in the beginning and got the show on the road (here is a song: http://youtu.be/OodAVVhX5n0).

At first there weren’t to many people, but as soon as the music started to come, even the kids had a good time. Soon the whole square was full of young and enthusiastic people. The amazing thing was that they have came just for the music. It’s true that this was a free concert and in was in the center of the city, but in doesn’t matter as long as the show was so good that even the homeless danced to the music.

After the Space Clinic it was ROA’s  turn to show us, the public, what they can do (a the ending song from them : http://youtu.be/XSkbM0Ijl-g). They didn’t failed us. The concert, the lights and the crowd were amazing. And the best part is that the music was so good that even the small ones liked it.Image

 I am glad that I didn’t miss this concert. Sorry for the quality of the photos, they were taken with my phone.

And i took a video for you to see how the homeless was rocking on ROA music :

The Job

Because this is the first post that is going to tell you something about me, I’m going to start with were i work. A student has to pay his debts.

I’m  a IT consultant in a shop that is in Baneasa Shopping City in Bucharest. We sell all kind of stuff, from computers and phones to tablets routers and sound speakers.

The job isn’t that great because of the people that you interact with. This job made me realise that the people in this country are stupid and they buy stuff only beacause it’s considered cool. The products that we sell are design to look good and be easy to use, so that the americans can used it without any headache. Belive it or not, this people don’t know how to use them. It’s incredible. One day someone called to ask how to turn it off. The obvious question is : “Why did you buy it, if you don’t know what to do with it?”.

And belive it or not, that is not the worst part. The worst part is the road to work, because the people are so eager to come to the mall, that they come with and half an our before the mall’s opens. I understand that you want to buy stuff, but wait for the f**king mall to open. We (the people that are working in the mall) don’t have how to get in time at work because the bus is full with people that are coming to the mall to hang out, annoying teenagers and stincking old people. If you are old, why would you come to the mall? Make an 40 min road in a full bus with a incredible hot weather. I just can’t understand. The death is searching for them at home and they are shopping at the mall.

 

My country is incredible and so are the people that populate it.

 

Here is a photo from my working place before opening:Image

(ps: The people can’t enter the mall before it opens)

Oppesite of FAILS

I did a post about what the internet would be without the fails videos. It would be a bit boring. But there is also a part of the internet videos that can amaze you.

We always have laught about the people that didn’t do exactly what they expected. And we have to thank that friend that always was there to get those moments on camera. But this post isn’t about that people. This post is about that people that had theirs mind on something impossible and made that thing possible.

I want you to think about that athletes (amateur or profesional) that made you think about starting doing that sport or I want to try that. Those videos that amazed you and made you say “I want to do that” or “WOW, how did he do that?!”.

I wanted to take some minutes of my life and thank those people for making the internet a funnier and interesting place. Keep on being incredible.

To uphold my words I put this videos :

 

 

Thank you awesome reader for taking the time to read this post!

What would the internet be without the fails

Imagine a world were there are no fails videos. A place were if you get bored at work you wouldn’t have what to do, a place were you would enter on youtube just for music videos and homemade videos about some random stuff, but nothing funny. What do you think? Would you like that? Do you want to be in a world like that? I sure don’t…

One of the greatest part of the video streaming sites is the homemade videos part. A place were you can enter and see how other people take stupid decision. A place were you can say: “I’m not the only one that did something that stupid” or “Damn that dude is stupid!”

And for this reason I posted this fail compilation so you can laugh about the stupid decision of other people and because to laugh is good for your health.

What to do when you are bored in a supermarket

My wife always insists on accompanying her for shopping. Unfortunately she likes to prowl article by article, while I get bored quickly.

Then I say I’m going a minute to the electronics district (totally useless in her opinion) and possibly meet me at the house or in the driveway. But yesterday I received the following letter home from Carrefour

“Dear Ms. Y, the last six months your husband caused serious disruptions in our store activity. We can not tolerate his behavior and we have to prohibit your access to Carrefour. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Y, are listed below and are supported by video recordings:

1. January. February 15:He took 24 boxes on the shelf of condoms and randomly put them in shopping carts of other customers, taking advantage of their carelessness.

2. February. February 23 He made all the alarms clocks in the district ‘Homewares’ sound every five minutes.

3. March 6th floor Made a trail of tomato sauce to the front door of the ladies’ room.

4. April. March 11 He told a cashier on an official tone, ‘Code Yellow in the vegetables district. Go there immediately. ” That prompted the employee to leave our designated station and therefore receive a reprimand letter from his supervisor, which led to a strike organized by the union that cost management at the company time and money.

5. May. March 25 He blocked the rate office for an hour, requesting the opening of a contract for a bag of M & M.

6. June. April 2 moved the sign “Caution! Wet floor! ‘ a carpeted area.

7. July. April 12 in the district staged a tent ‘Camping’ and invited other buyers children to bring  pillows and blankets from the district ‘Sheets’ to spend the weekend together. 22 children responded positively to the offer.

8. August. April 26 When an employee asked if he could help him he began crying and screaming ‘Why can not people just leave me alone?’, Caused many buyers to immediately call 112 and the arrival of three ambulances.

9. September. June 2, He looked into a camera lens and used it as a mirror while picking his nose.

10. June 16 while investigating a hunting rifle in the district ‘Weapons’ asked the seller where you can find antidepressants.

11. June 24 He was moved stealthily through the shelves of the store while humming loudly enough to be heard exciting theme of ‘Mission Impossible’.

12. June 30 He was hidden in the clothes from a stander, and when other buyers emerged to see merchandise, he shout ‘Boo!’

13. August 6 He opened all the boxes of pens and pencils from the stationery rayon, trying all the blue colors and tearing the tops of the pencils, under the pretext that none has the blue shade of the period crossed by Mr..

14. August 19 When we had an announcement to the amplifier of the store, he crouched on the floor in the fetal position screaming ‘Oh, no! I hear those voices again! “

15. And, on August 20 last unacceptable behavior that prompted us to prohibit your access to Carrefour through this letter, he went into a dressing room and after a while, shouted very loudly “Hey! No toilet paper in this cabin! ” This caused the fainting of our employee of the district.

Sincerely, X Manager Carrefour
