Scary time

I live in the most scary epoch ever. All historical data, pictures, footages are at my fingertips. Since the era of photography started, humanity have pretty much documented the entire 20th century and uploaded it online. Two clicks away from the curious me. Every time I see a photo from 19xxs, I try to understand where it stands compared […]

Screen Scraping

I have learned a new term Screen scraping – analyzing CLI outputs and responses via script connected to the CLI

Process approvals

Some processes have a long cycle of approvals which are delaying the final task execution. The delay is disturbing, while some people might miss an approval which restarts the process from the start. It complicates and delays execution dramatically. The wrong part is that an approver has no any accountability on giving or not giving an […]

It tells the story of a botanist Mark Watney being stranded on mars and his journey to escape (or not :) the planet. He is doing all the weird crazy science and duct tape engineering to make his escape possible, fighting the […]

Русский национальный фолк

Обажаю korpiklaani за то, что в их фолк-метале есть какой-то национальный инструмент, который одновременно задаёт мелодию и предает ей неповторимый колорит Скандинавии, природы, смиренной грусти. Будто эту песню играли много поколений назад и в таком же неизменном виде будут играть ещё много поколений. В русской культуре такой же национальный и одновременно грустный колорит задаёт гармонь.

Staff oversharing

In my experience I was working in a IT support company with a team dedicated to a project and a team shared among projects. Being a part of a dedicated team is simple. Same goal, shared job among everyone. Team spirit and dedication. Possibly one lead/manager. Shared teams are worse. Shared teams introduce additional complications […]
