Hey can you help me? #1

Hey can you help me? #1

Professionally I’ve been a SysAdmin ( IT firefighter focused ) and I still think I didn’t hear/see them all, also I want to share with you, brief funny experiences.

And without further ado, this is me, one day when a workplace proximity acquaintance(WPA) comes to my desk and:

WPA: Hey can you help me with my screen?

IT Firefighter: Sure, what is the problem?

WPA: Bla bla bla bla ….bla (lots of “complex” things which don’t make sense)

IT Firefighter: OK, let’s to go to your desk and see what is wrong!


Here we are in front of the computer and the WPA explains that a program looks like it is running but it does not appear on the screen.

WPA has two screens and this time, only one was turned on!…what do you think?

Problem solved by pressing the power button on the second screen where the orphan program was chilling on the desktop 🙂



AWS Transformation Day

AWS Transformation Day

Some perks of living in a big city are that, from time to time, you can attend nice events for free. I went to AWS Transformation DAY to get a sneak peek into the Public Cloud world.

The Good

  • The Keynote speaker delivered a good presentation and the audience appeared to be satisfied, he even shared some principles.
  • Everyone got some gifts when they registered (agenda, water bottle and some stickers)
  • Free food and unlimited Starbucks coffee is always great 🙂

The Bad

  • It was supposed to be an event which targets the enterprise world and I was expecting more engaged speakers. With a couple of exceptions the “slides” were even for me(a novice with AWS) poorly presented and highly repetitive. I think Amazon needs to choose more wisely who is on the stage since that person needs to capture the audience attention, my mind started to doodle.
