People keep suprising me (2)

Wednesday : 28 Aug '02 - 12:04 | admin default | Wikipedia

I recently wrote about collegues that supprized me... now it even gets more funny, although it is not the direct collegues anymore.

Like any normal department we have a coffeemachine, which provides us with the necessary cafeine to make it through the days with our eyes open. In our department we make our own coffee with a simple coffeemaker, put it in a thermoscan and the last one makes new coffee. Now we moved to another building and are not alone anymore in the room, we share it with some 40 other people (talk about officegartens....). Because of that many people we suggested having a big coffeemachine placed here by the local coffeemachinebuilder, which would mean that we can get the coffee by the cup from that machine. Also a big advantage is that we could get coffee for meetings from that machine, which would save us about 30 Euro every meeting.... never expected that catering can be so expensive he :-)

The thing now is, we discovered that the other people don't want this, because we are the only department that doesn't pay for the coffee. Supposingly the feeling of the other chefs it that is you get coffee for free something is wrong... because you don't work for it or something !?!?!?! Anyway, the case is now that they are deciding about it during the management meeting... about a coffee machine?!??! Like they don't have anything better to do, something like making the group profitable again.....

Sometimes I really don't understand people!

People keep suprising me

Thursday : 22 Aug '02 - 15:54 | admin default | Wikipedia

Sometimes one can be very supprised by how childisch people can be. At the moment I'm doing my master thesis at a staff department somewhere with Siemens, and we have here some very well paid consultants walking around. Still some topics are handled like I'm working with a group of first-year students at our university. I have the feeling that most of the meetings we had with Scintilla's Operator Team or the Lustrum Commitee at our study association Scintilla were more professional than here :-)

Take for example the moving we are doing now. Next week our whole department, some 12 people, will go to an other building. There the place (in square meter) available is less then here, so we all have to give up a little bit. Since most of the people working here are much underway because of the consulting business, this should be no problem. Still some people arque many hours about where they want to sit, what they need at the new place and that it is all no good.... Even if so, the decision has been made and their is nothing we can do about it, but apparently that is not enough.....

Most funny is that these people are the people with the highest degrees, all PhD's .... perhaps promoting is not a good idea after all :-)

Another reason not to go to the US

Next to all the 'nice' things our friend George is doing at the other site of the ocean, this picture once again shows that those people are really crazy.... I still don't know why my friends Leuter, Joossie and Woutje went over there :-)

Very nice, a small business in Bangkok discovered that it could boost its business when the delivery men would dress up like spiderman... perhaps this is a nice idea to suggest to Siemens where I'm doing my master thesis.. :-)

Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of

Bikes..... you can't live with them, but you also can't live without them...

Today the weather was so nice that I decided that is was time to finally repair the holes in the tires of my racing bike and take a nice long tour here in the surroundings of Erlangen.... After repairing 4 (!!) holes, I finally could pump some air in the tire without it getting flat imediately... So I put them back on the bike, pumped all my tires to the appropriate pressure and dressed for the tour... Just get some water in my flacon, and ready to go... where is my bike, a, there it is.... AAAAAAAARG.... the back tire is again flat! AGAIN!

Sometimes you have the feeling the day just doesn't like you and the best thing to do is go back in bed and pretend the day never happended.... this was my day, but with this nice weather I cannot go back to bed...... I wish it would rain!

Very smart program

Wednesday : 14 Aug '02 - 10:33 | admin default | Wikipedia

I jsut discovered the program Synergy, which I will certainly try somewhere this week. It lets you use two computers on the same screen, keyboard and mouse, but without additional hardware. Very nice, check it out if you are running a windows and linux computer.

Wine making

Sunday : 11 Aug '02 - 17:24 | damen default | Wikipedia

A while ago I told that I wanted to start making wine again. Today I went to the forest next to our appartment (photo's when I have the money for a digicam) and collected a small amount of blueberries again. Together with the 10 liter bottle that I picked up today I can finally start.... but oh dear, I don't have the yeast to do it. So we can go to


Heheheheh
