O femeie recent divortata,isi petrecu prima zi impachetindu-si lucrurile in cutii si valize.A doua zi a venit un camion si a incarcat totul,inclusiv mobila.
A treia zi ,s-a asezat pe jos,in sufrageria goala,a pus muzica in surdina,a asezat doua luminari,doua kile de creveti,o farfurie de icre si o sticla de vin alb pus la gheata.
Cind a terminat de mincat,a demontat toate barele de la perdelele din fiecare camera,le-a scos capacele laterale,a indesat inauntru icrele si crevetii care ii ramasesera,a pus capacele la loc si a asezat din nou barele la geamuri.
Cind s-a intors,fostul sot s-a mutat cu amanta si cu noua lui mobila.In primele zile totul fu perfect.Insa in curind,incet,incet,casa a inceput sa puta.
Au incercat de toate:au facut curatenie,au aerisit…au revizat gurile de ventilatie pentru eventualitatea ca s-ar pute gasi soareci morti inauntru,au spalat covoarele…In fiecare coltisor de casa au pus deodorante electrice,au golit zeci de butelii de spray…Au cheltui o gramada de bani sa schimbe covoarele…In zadar.

Nimic nu functiona.
Nimeni nu le mai venea in vizita,angajatii refuzau sa lucreze si pina si fata care facea curatenie in casa,i-a abandonat.
Disperati,fostul sot si amanta,au hotarit sa se mute.
Dupa o luna inca nu gasisera pe nimeni dispus sa cumpere casa.Cei de la agentiile imobiliare nici nu mai raspundeau la telefon.
In final au cumparat o casa noua.
Intr-o zi,fosta sotie il suna ca sa stabileasca detaliile divortului si din treacat il intreaba cum o mai duce. El raspunde ca vinde casa,fara insa sa-i dea vreo explicatie.

Ea il asculta calma,apoi ii zice ca o sa vorbeasca cu avocatul,sa vada cum ar putea face sa cumpere ea casa.Banuind ca ea n-are nici o idee de adevaratul motiv pentru care o vinde,ii propune a zecea parte din pretul real al locuintei,ca sa scape cit mai repede.Femeia accepta si in citeva ore avocatul ii aduce actele la semnat.
O saptamina mai tirziu,barbatul si amanta se oprira la poarta casei,observind surizatori cum muncitorii impachetau lucrurile si le urcau in camion.

……inclusiv barele de la perdele…


German Dehesa spunea ceva asemanator:
“noi,barbatii ,ar trebui sa intelegem ca femeile sint invincibile,imparabile si de neintrecut”..

Poem Of A Software Engineer

Just know that the love I have for you
Is not to be put in a stack or queue
Like a variable in an infinite loop
Be in my heart always and never stop

My heart is like a port, unread,
and the love I have has only one thread
You are in my heart’s RAM and not in the cache
So if you won’t respond, my heart will crash.

Like an application that is stand alone,
I’m a programmer who earns a lot on my own
And my request is clear, without any encryption
And hope it is not void, that you return.

If Java can be linked with C
Or if e-mails can be sent for free
Why on earth can’t you and me
For the rest of our life time together be”

How to Shoot Yourself In the Foot Using Any Programming Language

The proliferation of modern programming languages (all of which seem to have stolen countless features from one another) sometimes makes it difficult to remember what language you’re currently using. This guide is offered as a public service to help programmers who find themselves in such dilemmas.

You try to shoot yourself in the foot, but find out the the gun is far too powerful for your simple needs of foot shooting.

You accidentally create a dozen clones of yourself and shoot them all in the foot. Providing emergency medical assistance is impossible since you can’t tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others and saying, “That’s me, over there.”

After importing java.awt.right.foot.* and java.awt.gun.right.hand.*, and writing the classes and methods of those classes needed, you’ve forgotten what the hell you’re doing.

Your foot is ready to be shot in roughly five minutes, but you just can’t find anywhere to shoot it.

You shoot yourself in the foot with a gun made with pieces from 300 other guns.

Find a gun, it falls apart. Put it back together, it falls apart again. You try using the .GUN Framework, it falls apart. You stab yourself in the foot instead.

SELECT @ammo:=bullet FROM gun WHERE trigger = ‘PULLED’;
INSERT INTO leg (foot) VALUES (@ammo);

You shoot yourself in the foot, but nobody can understand how you did it. Six months later, neither can you.

You’ve perfected a robust, rich user experience for shooting yourself in the foot. You then find that bullets are disabled on your gun.

You shoot your right foot with one hand, then switch hands to shoot your left foot but you realize that the gun has turned into a banana.

You shoot yourself in each toe, iteratively, until you run out of toes, then you read in the next foot and repeat. If you run out of bullets, you continue anyway because you have no exception-handling ability.

You try to shoot yourself in the foot but you just keep hitting the whitespace between your toes.

Using a COLT 45 HANDGUN, AIM gun at LEG.FOOT, THEN place ARM.HAND.FINGER. on HANDGUN.TRIGGER and SQUEEZE. THEN return HANDGUN to HOLSTER. CHECK whether shoelace needs to be retied.

You shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which
you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which
you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which
you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds the gun with which
you shoot yourself in the appendage which holds…

Shoot yourself in the foot with a water pistol. On big systems, continue until entire lower body is waterlogged.

Visual BASIC
You’ll shoot yourself in the foot, but you’ll have so much fun doing it that you won’t care.

Visual FoxPro
You mock SQL and Visual BASIC programmers for not being able to shoot both feet at once, but when you try to do it yourself you realize that you can’t properly handle the MSgun ActiveX.

You try to shoot yourself in the foot only to discover you must first reinvent the gun, the bullet, and your foot. After that’s done, you pull the trigger, the gun beeps several times, then crashes.

Foot in yourself shoot.

You shoot yourself in the foot, then spend all day figuring out how to do it in fewer characters.

The compiler won’t let you shoot yourself in the foot.

If you succeed, shoot yourself in the left foot.
If you fail, shoot yourself in the right foot.

Concurrent Euclid
You shoot yourself in somebody else’s foot.

Put the first bullet of the gun into the foot of the left leg of you.
Answer the result.

You spend days writing a UIL description of your foot, the trajectory, the bullet, and the intricate scrollwork on the ivory handles of the gun. When you finally get around to pulling the trigger, the gun jams.

% ls
foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o
% rm * .o
rm: .o: No such file or directory
% ls

Not only can you shoot yourself in the foot, your users can too.

You’ll be able to shoot yourself in the foot just as soon as you figure out what all these bullets are for.

After realizing that you can’t actually accomplish anything in this language, you shoot yourself in the head.

You tell your program you want to be shot in the foot. The program figures out how to do it, but the syntax doesn’t allow it to explain.

After correctly packaging your foot, you attempt to concurrently load the gun, pull the trigger, scream, and shoot yourself in the foot. When you try, however, you discover that your foot is of the wrong type.

370 JCL
You send your foot down to MIS with a 4000-page document explaining how you want it to be shot. Three years later, your foot comes back deep-fried.

Cum arata primul spot Seinfeld – Bill Gates

Noua campanie de promovare Windows a fost lansata oficial ieri, odata cu primul spot TV. Reclama ii are ca protagonisti pe Jerry Seinfeld si Bill Gates, anunta TechCrunch.

Spotul ii prezinta pe Seinfeld si pe Gates intr-un magazin de pantofi, in perioada reducerilor. Protagonistii nu fac nici o referinta la gigantul Microsoft pana la sfarsitul reclamei, cand Seinfeld intreaba daca Microsoft “o sa scoata ceva care sa faca computerele moi si bune de mestecat, asa cum e tortul, ca sa putem manca din ele in timp ce lucram”. Gates raspunde prin comunicare nonverbala.

Potrivit unui e-mail trimis de conducerea Microsoft catre toti angajatii si publicat de TechCrunch, campania urmareste sa “povesteasca despre cum Windows le permite unui miliard de oameni din toata lumea sa-si imbunatateasca vietile”.

Obiectivul primei faze a campaniei este sa ii angajeze pe consumatori intr-o noua conversatie despre Windows – “o conversatie ce va evolua pe masura ce campania progreseaza, dar care va fi marcata in permanenta de umor si umanitate”.

Spotul a fost difuzat in premiera pe canalul de televiziune NBC, in timpul meciului de deschidere a campionatului national de fotbal american.

Campania, in valoare de 300 de milioane de dolari, urmareste sa imbunatateasca imaginea sistemului de operare Windows Vista. Potrivit The Wall Street Journal, aceasta este una din cele mai ample campanii de marketing din istoria Microsoft.
In prezent, Seinfeld este singura celebritate, in afara de Bill Gates, implicata in campanie, desi au mai fost si altii luati in considerare, printre care si comediantul Will Farrell.
In ciuda faptului ca Microsoft a vandut peste 180 milioane de licente pentru Windows Vista, de cand a inceput sa fie comercializat in 2007, lansarea sistemului de operare a fost considerata un esec, desi compania a spus ca defectele anterioare ale sistemului de operare au fost rezolvate.
Sistemul de operare Windows este cel mai important produs al imperiului software de 60 miliarde dolari al Microsoft. Windows este folosit pe mai mult de 90% din calculatoarele din toata lumea, iar profitul generat de Windows este folosit la finantarea altor noi afaceri ale Microsoft, precum consolele Xbox si playerele Zune.

Super Roller Coasters: Steel Dragon si Kingda Ka

In cazul in care chiar te-ai plictisit de viata de zi cu zi si nu te mai satisface nici o saritura cu coarda elastică, sa nu mai vorbim de bungee jumping-ul spatial iti recomand o calatorie in Japonia sau… dupa plac… in SUA.

Steel Dragon 2000

Steel Dragon 2000

Steel Dragon 2000 este amplasat in parcul Nagashima Spa Land (Japonia) si este la ora actuala, cu o lungime de 2,5 Km, cel mai mare montagne-rousse din intreaga lume.

Kingda Ka

Kingda Ka

Mai spectaculos este insa, Kingda Ka din parcul Six Flags Great Adventure (New Jersey), cel care iti ridica adrenalina la cote alarmante datorita unei acceleratii de la 0 la 200 Km/h in 3,5 secunde. Iar cand te gandesti ca vei cobori cu viteza asta de la aproape 150 de metri, ai prefera mai degraba sa bati mingea de fotbal in fata blocului.  Desigur, doar daca nu iti lipseste nebunia de moment si dorinta de adrenalina la maxim. Si nu in ultimul rand, pentru doritorii de senzatii tari, un sfat: NU VA UITATI PAMPERS-UL acasa! 😛
