Some more programming humour today.

Anyone want to agree or dispute this?

Questions and uncertainty

It can sometimes feel like we’re inundated with questions and uncertainty day after day. So in these circumstances where do you turn? Who do you turn to?

If your questions are about a specific subject or topic, I’m sure there are experts around who can assist. For example if you have a problem with your laptop or mobile phone, there are many shops and companies around who have technical experts who can help solve your technology issue.

If you questions are about life’s problems, maybe you turns to your parents or other family or friends.

If you feel your future is uncertain and you’re struggling to know how to see a positive outcome, who better to turn to than God. In fact, whether you have questions about life in general, problems with life, or feel life is getting on top of you, God is the the one to turn to. He alone can give you direction and guidance which always has your best interests at heart.

There’s no need to stress about your future, instead take all your questions or concerns to God, and He will answer your questions and guide you into the best future for you.

Some more programming humour today.

 

Sorry! 🙂

Some more programming humour today.

Programmers can build loads of useful things, but sometimes we’ve just got to admit it’s not our job

 

Came across this quote tonight and it resonated with me. A couple of days ago at work we discovered an issue with a process that was implemented a few months ago. We’ve therefore had several conversations in the last few days about how we all make mistakes sometimes.

The situation at work, proved we all make mistakes, and then make more mistakes, as the problem that was discovered was originally found at the end of last year, and was documented as having been fixed. Unfortunately a fix had been put in place which resolved one issue, but it appeared the fix wasn’t fully tested, meaning it wasn’t noticed that the whole issue hadn’t been resolved.

In life, even when we mess up God forgives, restores and blesses us again. And when we then mess up again, God forgives, restores and blesses us again. And when we mess up again God forgives, restores and blesses us again, etc etc.

Thank goodness God forgives, restores and blesses us again and again because as humans we mess up so often.

Sometimes we just have to do whatever we can to make sure the demo can go ahead. And not only that, that the demo appears to go well to those we’re doing the demo to.

Be honest, I’m sure we’ve all done demos that aren’t all they appear to be!

I’m sure we’ve also all attended demos from suppliers where we’ve questioned whether their demo is really all it appears to be!

How many times have we heard this from a supplier?

Of course none of the code we write ever has features 🙂

Over the last few months I’ve done a number of posts called ‘Slogans’. Today it’s time for another one!

In my previous “Slogans” posts, I mentioned how we all see and hear many adverts on a daily basis via advertising hoardings or adverts on the radio, television  magazines and newspapers.

Today again I want to give you some more slogans to see how many of the companies/organisations associated with them you can identify from their slogans?

  1. Refreshes The Parts Other Beers Cannot Reach
  2. A hazelnut in every bite
  3. Has it changed your life yet?
  4. We are one
  5. You only get an ‘OO’ with…
  6. How do you eat yours
  7. Maybe She’s Born With It, Maybe It’s…
  8. Snap! Crackle! Pop!
  9. The power of cool
  10. The drive of your life

So that’s the slogans, how many do you think you know?

advertising

So here’s the answers…

  1. Heineken
  2. Topic
  3. Compaq
  4. Calvin Klein CK one
  5. Typhoo
  6. Cadbury’s crème egg
  7. Maybelline
  8. Kellogs Rice Crispies
  9. Davidoff Cool Water
  10. Peugeot

There were a few tricky ones in there, so if you got them all, well done!

I’ll be doing a few more of these in the coming weeks/months, so keep watching the adverts and remembering the slogans!

A reminder for all programmers out there!

Always code as if guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live. ~ Martin Golding

It might be a little over the top, but it is true, when you write code, it’s always good practice to make sure you write it in a way that makes it easily understandable to the next person who has the unfortunate task of having to amend it…otherwise your name will become mud!

Happy programming 🙂

Have you ever felt like this? Bored!

We’ve probably all felt like that sometime. For the last few weeks, and the next while I am not working. This doesn’t mean I’ve been free to do what I want or go where I want as I’ve been very limited in what I am able to do physically. This has meant that I’ve had to find lots of things to do which involve limited physical activity at the very most, and that’s hard! You’ve got to be really desperate to watch day-time TV, and there’s only so much you can read, so yes, I have found myself feeling bored and frustrated at times.

So out of interest I googled ‘bored’, and had a look at some of the images it offered me that relate to being bored. This one was definitely my favourite

Don’t worry folks, I haven’t (yet!) done this 🙂

My lesson from this is that if ever I need cheered up, just google how you feel and have a look at the images it suggests, you’re sure to see one that amuses you and brightens your day.
