Someone touched my computer

Song of the day: When you were young by the killers

laptopWho the f***k dared touching my laptop?! Thats the first thing I though when I saw the battery plugged! I always leave it without battery and use it on AC power. Am I a real geek to notice this kind of things? Am I a real geek to be upset? I dont know, but when I launch firefox and all my tabs have disappeared because the person who used it didnt click save or delete them all, that is where I get furious and then realize that it isnt a big deal I am not that bad but I think I am still a geek regards to that! 😛

Sorry, I am upset these days… 😦

By the way, this week end I go to Milan with a friend. More photos are coming! 🙂 Our only issue is that the temperature will be between -4 and 4 during 3 days. I am not used to that anymore. 😀

Song of the day: Ghosts by Robbie Williams

Today, after spending 16 hours on an issue yesterday, my colleague came and sort it out in 1 hour!!! Believe it or not! You can’t imagine how pissed I was against him. But I should not hold any grudge againdt him. He is part of the development team that have been taken away from the support. Yesterday he was tied up by another production issue and he wants to make a point I think to our new boss that the separation was a bad move… But hey! that is work! C’est la vie! there is nothing to do now! 😛 But I ma still pissed though! 🙂

And guess what? I am working. I am at my desk front of my 2 screens, it is 11am and I have been here since 7:15 and I will be here for a lot longer… We got too many works to do on our servers and we need to be extra careful these days because of what’s happening on the exchange. All our servers have been rebooted because Windows Updates have been applied so we have to restart 50 servers, put the passwords for the frive mappings, log on all the apps. We are going to carry few upgrades, password change, …

Some work are done because they’re moving our support offshore to Bengalore. We have people over from India here with us and we need to train them to do our job. Banks are trying to cut the prices because we are too expensive in London! 😦 And because of the credit crunch, they told all our contractors that their wages will be reduced by 10%: take it or leave it. No exception will be made… Thing is, we are already so streched that it is difficult for them to sack us, permanent employees but because it is harder now to get a job in banking, they still can hit the contractors! Bastards! But I am sure their bonuses won’t be that much affected, only ours…

Song of the day: Les cactus by Jacques Dutronc

You know what… I have ne glasses. I bought the others 3 years ago. They had no anti reflect and no color anymore! My problem is that my sight has gotten worse. It wasn’t great before but at least it has never changed for the past 10 years!!! Now, it is worst than a mole! 😛 For those who understand, before my correction was +4.25 Sph and +0.75 Cyl for my right eye and +5.5 Sph and +0.5 for the left eye with 180 axis. Now it is +5.75 Sph, -1.25 cyl and 90 axis for both… I think it means SHIT but I am not sure! 😛 What I know is when your eyes are fucked, it is not good to work before a computer!

Song of the day: Israelites by Desmond Dekker

I am upset. People are exciting by the Olympic games this year. They will soon begin but I think that we have forgotten someone. Yes the people of China!! They keep killing opponents, putting in jail innocents and oppressing the people! Go read this article here on Le Monde and the action Amnesty International is putting up here – check out the issues.

how depressing is that?

Song of the day: Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits – I love this song.

So like I said in the subject… when the capitalists look at the pleb’s ass… you can go towards something bad like the petrol price crisis. The speculation don’t stop because the traders are humans… because as a matter of fact they aren’t. People have always died from starvation but now it is not only the kids, that is also the parents, the fucking family who is dying because some dudes decided to trade some petrol at the highest rate we have ever seen. As a result people can’t transport any food or anything at usual cost. All has doubled up and the dude… what does he do? He just pays petrol for his hummer with the big bonus he got for his great work…. that implies people dying in another country. That makes me sick.

And today, what do I read? This in le monde. The same dude is going to medical conferences about a new molecule found by oncologist that could help ‘cure’ rectal cancer!!! So he wants to buy shares in the molecule owner company as the shares will soon take off if that is really true. He wants to make money betting on the health of people’s ass! Like this, price of these treatment will be already expensive before they go on the market. It will be disproportionate and inapropriate.

You don’t bet when people’s life are at stake, fucking hell!

Sorry, I didn’t mean to be upset, but I guess I am a bit upset and the worst is that I am a part of it as I am working for a bank! 😦 That is what sadden me as well….
