Tieto, tieto where are you going

Jako byvaly zamestnanec Tieta jsem se musel pousmat nad touhle fotkou

Tieto kam kracis ? Jsou ty mrize potrebne, aby jste zamezili lidem odchazet z firmy  🙂 ? Stavas se aliasem pro vezeni ?

Kdyz jsem te mel za zamestnavatele tak nas bylo kolem 20-40 lidi (v te dobe TietoEnator potazmo Sykora) velmi prijemna firma, musim priznat jako zelenac jsem pracoval (dovolim si rict) s elitou v programovani v dane dobe a lokalite. Odesel jsem kdyz Tieto prerostlo v 700-steho obra, ktery poziral nove zamestnance po desitkach denne.

Me pocity asi byly nasledne –  z firmy kde panoval kamradsky duch se stal bobtnajici monstrum procesu, narizeni a ruznych direktiv. Slo to jinak ?  (google, facebook jsou toho dukazem ze ano ;(

Par hlasek z kancelare:

“mrize jsou potreba jen v prvnim patre. Skokem z okna se jen zmrzacis a jako pracovni uraz budes dostavat dozivotni rentu”

“Tieto ma stejne problemy jako FoxConn a snazi se jim predchazet”

stay hungry, stay foolish


3 stories from Steve Jobs

“No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don’t want to die to get there.

And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

And that is as it should be. Because death is very likely the single best invention of life.

It’s life’s change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new.”

How to boot MBP without working DVDRom

I don’t use my DVDRom at all. After couple years I have found out that it is not working at all (of course it was jusst in situation where I needed).

I was in situation where I had to boot install DVD to repair my HD but how to do it when your DVDRom is not working? Here are few list what I have tried:

  • clean your DVDRom – yes it helps, probably there is just dust, but I hadn’t have my cleaning set around me
  • use “Remote install Mac OSX” – this tool works only for MacBook Air and Mac mini. MacBook Pro will not be able to boot using this tool, why ?  (Apple what’s wrong with you)
  • boot from external HD – should be possible, but my external HD died 😦
  • tried to use external DVDRom and connect it through USB – yes it is working

So good news is that Apple has not forbidden external dvdrom. This is the way I am using now to boot my MBP. I really would like to know why they prohibited to boot from network using “remote install mac osx”. Apple don’t be crappy !

OSX package manager

Long time ago when I have switched to Mac I have missed “apt” from debian. APT is package manager the easiest tool I have ever seen.

Mac is more GUI based, anyway there are some tasks you would like to do/run from command line. For example mac doesn’t have “wget” command and there can be much more comands you would like to use but they are not there. In this case you can install them by using some package manager.

Some time ago I have played with Fink and Macports but honestly they are good, but ….

Last weekend I have found the project called HomeBrew which is package manager for OSX based on Ruby. So what is homeBrew?

Homebrew is the easiest and most flexible way to install the UNIX tools Apple didn’t include with OS X.

Very easy to install and use.

Juniper VPN Network Connect with Snow Leopard 10.6.6

I had to reinstall my mac (Snow Leopard 10.6.6)  and can confirm that installing juniper VPN Network Connect is working out of the box.

Not sure whether this is fix done by Juniper or Apple (as I have installed latest updates 10.6.6) anyway I didn’t had any more problems.
