Tomorrow I’m off for Oslo (too early really, leaving at 05.30) and first of all a quick status update on migrations, but after that the real reason for the visit is a full day workshop and meetings on Identity & Access Management. Last session ends at 19.00, I believe the day will feel absolutely crammed.
I’m hearing every now and then people mentioning that I have a blog.
I find it quite amusing to see the same people be so surprised that someone actually uses all the new collaborative technology that we have purchased and built.
I guess I sometime should tell them I don’t really have one blog, that one’s really only rarely used. I actually have four, and two retired, plus one semi-active wiki, two half-and-half abandoned discussion forums, and a few others servers on top of that. I’m really trying to consolidate, whenever I have some spare time over of my free time, which is actually very seldom considering the kids, the family and the photography.
But someday I will succeed…
1st of November today. 15 days left to “Big-bang” migration (also known as D-Day to some) but more importantly only 1,5 months until vacation.
I really look forward to this (the latter), I should maybe check up if I can take out more vacation and earlier as I’m starting to feel quite worn out.
Google has published some quite nice pictures of their datacenter.Extremely structured and well-ordered, almost so they seem on the edge of Photoshopped. But cool pictures regardless.
Sometimes I love my job. It’s so nice to actually sometime be able to test something that works completely, and with really great quality (instead of the usual daily struggle…)
Like today, when we tested a 3-party video conferencing, where two users connected into the big fullscreen video meeting projector, from their iPhones, using 3G only, and still with impressive video quality. (You really had to see it to believe it, I must try to arrange to get a picture taken)
3G may not be the optimal solution for longer meetings, (but a simple wi-fi with internet connection should do), but it did prove the point, the video setup works like a dream even on very poor network bandwidth.
