English…start!

Category: English posts,MiscellaneousIuliana @ 12:59

Astazi este o zi mare. Este ziua in care am decis sa traduc toate posturile mele in engleza pentru ca se pare ca am cititori din toata lumea si nu vreau sa fiu acuzata de dicriminare. :) Incepand de azi voi traduce toate posturile vechi in engleza. Va dura ceva timp, dar intr-un final, cei care au ajuns din greseala pe acest blog si nu au inteles mare lucru, vor putea citi in curand versiunea in engleza a tuturor posturilor mele. Am ales engleza pentru ca este cea mai folosita limba de circulatie internationala si este limba straina pe care o stapanesc cel mai bine.

Today is a big day. It is the day I decided to translate all my posts into English because it seems I have readers from all around the world. So I don’t want to be accused of discriminating anyone. :) Starting from today I will translate all old posts in English. It will take some time, but in the end, the people who ended up on this blog and did not understand too much of it, will be able to read the English version of all my posts. I chose English because is the most used international language and is the foreign language that I know best. (Please be patient if the translation is not available right away… I have a life, you know? :) )

Cand americanu’ nu e la firma …

Category: English posts,MiscellaneousIuliana @ 18:25

Angajatii isi fac de cap…Adica :

– trei oameni si-au permis sa se invarta o zi intreaga ca niste **** intr-o caldare incercand sa faca design-ul unei baze de date.(si eu eram unul dintre ei :) )

– acum seara facem comanda de pizza, plateste firma desigur :D…Datorita faptului ca in firma noastra sexul predominant este cel feminin negocierea a durat mai mult de 30 min. :)

– normal ca nimeni nu a facut cine stie ce azi, dar am discutat liber, s-au tras concluzii si zic eu ziua de astazi a fost una destul de prolifica. :)

Sa tot muncesti asa :)

[English : When the american is not here…]

The employees are doing their stuff…Meaning :

– three people were allowed to practice mint rubbing an entire day trying to design a database.(I was one of them :) )

– now in the evening we’re ordering pizza on company courtesy of course… Because in this company there are more women than men the negotiation took more than 30 minutes. (It’s hard to decide for a woman what pizza wants and from where :) )

– obviously nobody did much today, but we had a lot of free talks, we’ve drawn conclusions and I might even say that this was a really successful day.

This is the way a job should be :)

Motto of the day :) [Reloaded]

Category: English posts,FunnyIuliana @ 17:17

Spuneam la un moment dat ca la noi la servici sunt 8 motto of the day(recent au devenit 10). Ma gandeam ca daca tot nu am timp ce face azi as putea sa le expun si sa le comentez.

MOTD1 : Phuck!

Aceasta interjectie provine din renumitul banc cu fetita si vanzatorul de la pet-shop. Noi folosim aceasta interjectie la birou in loc de fuck, pentru a nu supara seful american :).

(An adorable little girl, all blonde curls and blue eyes walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp: “Excuthe me, mithter do you keep widdle wabbiths?” The shopkeeper’s heart melts and he gets down on his knees, so that he’s on her level, and asks, “Do you want a widdle white wabby or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabby or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabby over there?”She, blushing, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees,leans forward and says in a quiet voice, “I don’t fink my python weally givth a phuck.”)

MOTD 2 : KISS! Abrevierea de la : Keep It Simple Stupid! Adaugata de american, avem ceva lume pe aici care are o placere nebuna in a se complica.

MOTD 3 : Don’t break the build! (A nu face nimic oficial din ce ai scris inainte de a te asigura ca merge…)

MOTD 4 : RTFM! Abrevierea de la : Read The Fucking Manual, desigur :).

MOTD 5 : REFACTOR! Pai fiind un proiect mare, atunci cand cineva schimba numele unei clase este recomandat sa foloseasca mecanismul de “refactoring” din Eclipse (IDE-ul nostru) pentru a actualiza in tot proiectul intr-un mod care sa genereze cat mai putine erori. Seful nostru american nu facea asta la un moment dat, iar regula asta a fost introdusa fix din cauza lui.

MOTD 6 : Google Fratilor! Ca in orice companie se pun intrebari … este mai bine sa-l consultam pe guru-ul in raspunsuri Google inainte de a pune o intrebare, pentru a ne asigura ca nu este una stupida :).

MOTD 7: Yeah Right! Asta este raspunsul pe care i-l dam intotdeauna sefului nostru cand ne intreaba daca putem face o treaba de doua zile in doua ore…

MOTD 8 : JJ is accidently genius! (JJ e porecla mea, btw). Orice componenta care intra pe mana mea, daca are vreun bug il voi gasi din greseala sau cand nu exista solutie reusesc intotdeauna sa pun intrebarea naiva care duce in final la gasirea unei solutii…

[later added] MOTD 9 : Ignore! Asta este ceea ce orice angajat mai devreme sau mai tarziu trebuie sa invete: sa isi ignore seful american :D.

[later added] MOTD 10 : SBP! Motto-ul sysadminului :), traducerea este fie : “Sa-mi bag pula“, fie “Sa-mi bag piciorul“…dupa caz si sex :)).

Deocamdata asta e colectia de motto-uri dupa care ne ghidam activitatea si speram pe 1 octombrie sa avem un protip demn de finantare.

[English]

I was saying in an old post that where I work there are 8 motto of the day(recently they became 10) . I was thinking that I could present them and comment them because I don’t really have inspiration for what I have to do today.

MOTD1 : Phuck!

This word has been chosen from the joke with the little girl and the pet-shop employee. We use this expression instead of fuck, because no dirty talk is allowed in the office, we don’t want to upset the american boss :) . (An adorable little girl, all blonde curls and blue eyes walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp: “Excuthe me, mithter do you keep widdle wabbiths?” The shopkeeper’s heart melts and he gets down on his knees, so that he’s on her level, and asks, “Do you want a widdle white wabby or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabby or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabby over there?”She, blushing, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees,leans forward and says in a quiet voice, “I don’t fink my python weally givth a phuck.”)

MOTD 2 : KISS! Abbreviation for : Keep It Simple Stupid! Added by The American because some of our people have a crazy pleasure in complicating stuff.

MOTD 3 : Don’t break the build! (Not to make anything official before making sure it works)

MOTD 4 : RTFM! Abbreviation for : Read The Fucking Manual, of course :) .

MOTD 5 : REFACTOR! Well…we are working on a big project, and when someone changes a class name it’s recommended to use the refactoring tool from Eclipse(Our IDE) to apply the change in the entire project so it won’t be any errors. The America wasn’t doing this, so this motto was added just because of him.

MOTD 6 : Google Fratilor! (Google’it brothers!) In out company people ask questions, just like in other companies, but it’s better to consult Google to prevent asking stupid questions:) .

MOTD 7: Yeah Right! This is the answer that The American always receives when he asks someone to do a two days job in only two hours…(And he does this a lot :) )

MOTD 8 : JJ is accidently genius! (JJ id my nick name, btw). Any component that I’m asked to work on, if it has a bug I will find it just by mistake, or when we have no solution about something, I always find the right question that answered correctly will lead to a solution…

[later added] MOTD 9 : Ignore! That is what every employee must learn sooner or later: to ignore The American:D.

[later added] MOTD 10 : SBP! The system administrator’s motto :) , comes from a Romanian expression that I am not able to translate into English. (It has somthing to do with dick and fuck anyway :D )

For now this is our collection of mottoes based on which our activity is guided and we hope on the first of October we’ll have a prototype worthy of financing.

Ploua….iar

Category: English posts,MiscellaneousIuliana @ 10:35

Nu stiu cum se pot plange unii de ploaie. Mie imi place. Sunetul stropilor lovind pervazul ma relaxeaza. De asemenea imi place mirosul din aer cand ploua. Miroase exact ca o rufa scoasa din masina de spalat. :) Cel mai mult imi place ca fugareste lumea la dos si afara e asa de pustiu si de liniste…Cel mai rau este ca atunci cand ploua nu am chef de munca, am chef de stat pe geam sa admir ploaia, am chef sa beau un ceai pe balcon, sa ma uit poate la un film si exemplele pot continua.

Uffa … ce chef de iesit afara sa ma ploua putin am…:( dar sunt blocata aici… la servici…

[English] : It’s raining again

I don’t understand how can some people complain about the rain. I like it. Sound of drops hitting the window relaxes me. I also like the smell of the air when it rains. It smells exactly as a fresh washed cloth, that was just extracted from from the washing machine. :)The most I like that the rain chases all the people into their houses and outside is so deserted and quiet.The worst is that when it rains, I’m missing working mood. I’m just in the mood to sit next to the window to listen and watch the rain, to have a hot tea, watch a movie and the examples go on…

Uffa… what i would not give to be able to go outside in the rain just a little…:( but I’m stuck here, at work…

Negânduri

Category: English posts,MiscellaneousIuliana @ 12:33

Negânduri pentru că gândurile unora numai gânduri nu se pot numi.

Negânduri pentru că unele gânduri numai gândite nu sunt.

Negânduri pentru că ele nu sunt gânduri de fapt…sunt concluzii trase în urma unei analize probabilistice.

Apropos’ cuvantul negânduri nici măcar nu este in DEX.

Revin.

[English : Unthoughts]

Unthoughts  because some people’s thoughts can’t be called thoughts.

Unthoughts because some thoughts are in fact not that thought.

Unthoughts because they are not thoughts…they’re conclusions of some probabilistic analysis.

By the way, the word unthoughts is not even in the dictionary.

I’ll be back.
