Hi, sorry for not doing anything on rosbe these days. I have a slight spare time problem… Work can be a curse from time to time. At the beginning I loved it there, sometimes I was 4-6 hours longer there to learn from my Training manager. He is a very skilled it guy and you Lerner stuff from him you would have to learn by books for months. It was real fun there together with him… For about 4 months. After that I started to do stuff myself and of course made some mistakes. Stuff from loosing a printer password to the smallest things like name a shortcut wrongly. At first he explained my mistakes, what was wrong and how to do better, the way it should be. Well it did not stay this way. Some things were not explained in a way understandable for beginners. If someone tells ya to replace all old LAN cable and you find cat5 and cat5.5 AND cat6, which would you replace? I kept the cat6 and was accused to act arbitrarily. You try to be friendly to everyone and as result are liked at work and what’s coming from him? Being called a wryneck and that he hates people who don’t follow a straight path. First sleepless nights causing accusation was that I do my mistakes intentional and to harm his image at work. Not very funny to hear such things. Trying to argue with him is no good idea too, because he is always right in his opinion. He says that there’s no need for discussion because he exactly knows what I did and why. Niiice. If you continue to argue he starts to get really angry and I once was close to get hit by him. He was already standing with pulsing fists. You hear you should ask if something is not fully understood, sure good idea, but not if you have to fear that he once said this to you or it’s to simple in his opinion. I won’t explain the reaction now, I think you can imagine. Thus you try your best to get things done the right way, being verbally kicked every second day and try to survive. He claims I said something quite wrong ages ago, you deny to have said it which is answered with a rhetoric question if I call him a liar… Every time you make a mistake he starts to rephrase the former ones again and again kicking you again and again for doing them. Result of this, being attacked for three hours some times. I have to send him every status update in written form because he tends to overhear things I tell him, but he tells me important stuff and if I dare to overhear anything, yaaaay. Cool thing is when he get contrary. My boss finds out of my over 100 hours above my normal time after 4 months of work, because I am at work one hour before my training manager, normally stay as long as he does, but he works 45 hours a week and I do 39. Boss is shocked because of legal problems and commands not to make any more hours, even leave earlier if possible to get them down to zero again. This worked two weeks and I was kicked for every minute above a normal day, then he found out that I could “leave” earlier but stay then. This was done about two months, then he feared legal problems here too. Result, I have to leave in time, which lasted about three weeks. Today for example I was called lazy for leavin already. I have 6.15 hrs on Friday and thus I have to leave at three o clock according to his commands… Well his former ones. When he is in a good mood sometimes it can be a really great day, but if he is not, it’s hell these days again after three weeks of good mood. Worst thing is being called a weakling for just sitting there letting him be in his rage, waiting for a hint when I can continue to work. I gave up to argue, it does not help at all, more the opposite is the case… Sure I could go to our boss trying to find a solution, sure I could fight back again, but I have to survive there for almost 1.5 more years and I am not even sure if I manage it in the current situation and for sure even less sure after sitting in my bosse’s office…
I want to share some recent fun stuff with ya.
Number one: UniOS.
The “dev” calls it a perfect os supporting any Windows, MacOS and Linux apps. Check this:
Have fun reading and feel free to comment here
Hey guys. Yeah I am not writing much these days, but thats due to my internship and my fully planned weekend (PARTY). The company rocks. Everyone is nice. Work is nice. My internship leader is a great guy. What more do ya want? I learned that Server 2008 is a nice OS and it really is far superior to Linux. (Feel free to hate me now 😉 ) I learned that printers suck, especially HP Universal Printer Driver Controlled ones and Canon ones! Sooo, everything is great, except the school. We have Religion and Sports, WOW, really important for a IT guy! Sports is dancing and gymnastics ad the Relgion guy called my a militant atheist with affections to Nationalsocialism. Thx man, I hate you, too! 😛
I wont forget my work on RosBE of course. I already added support for CMAKE, which will become the main build system after our sucky rbuild. I made many fixes, too, so you can expect a nice and clean RosBE with GCC 4.5.X soon. rbuild support will still stay for a while, but feature freezed. It just sucks too much to investigate more time to it. But why am I telling ya? You KNOW it anyway 😉
Ah btw, visit us at CLT2011! LINK
… I am back here. As some already know, I started an internship in a Auditing and tax consulting company in the IT. Its quite nice there. Everyone is friendly, work is real fun. Work times are not that regular, but who cares? I get home early enough to still do my Moderator Job at the ReactOS Forums and to play some SNES 😉 Well, most times. Last week on one day I worked for 16 hrs meaning from 7:45 am to 0:30 (+45 min break)… At that day I wanted to go to my bed and stay there for the next two days. But, nope. When I arrived at home (we were outside the company at that day and it was more far away) it was 1:30 and thus I was able to sleep 5 hours before I had to get up for work… wow, I was soo dead the next day.
Changes will happen very soon. A migration to GCC 4.5.1, new binutils and cmake is getting very close. RBUILD sucks way to much to be kept alive, so we change over to another beast doing a way better job. This work is mostly done by Amine Khaldi, but many other devs, pissed because of RBUILD’s crappiness, help in recent days to get things work properly.
Thats it for now.
Hi, after I found out that bplaced fully banned the Asian IP Range outta no obvious reason and thus noone from there was able to reach my site and due to all the downtimes, I decided to switch from the free hoster bplaced to 1blu.de. 1€ per Month is a nice price and all stuff works, even PHP fsockopen. (SVN Activity Feed on the right is the proof.) So its worth it.
EDIT: OK the forum still fails. I am unable to dump the database from bplaced because they took so many rights that their own phppgadmin fails to run on the bplaced site… How lame!
Something completely different today. Many of you already heard of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement in short ACTA I beleive. Its a secretly discussed document which is meant to become a normalized way to handle eeevul copyright infringement internationally. In theory a good thing, but two negative things. Nr 1: The fact that this is done completely without the public knowing of the ingredients of this agreement is everything, but not democratic. Even worse, the ppl taking part have to make sure that nothing reaches the public. It tends to be pro lobbyists and contra democracy, as every decision of our governments in the recent days… Nr 2: It will contain rules to force providers into responsibility if someone does illegal things over their connections. This will for sure result in something like the Three Strikes Rule we already see in France. This more and moe tends to a moving to the freaky US Copyright models and will help noone except the one having so much money that they can plaster their floors with it. Of course this agreement is meant to just address the ppl making illegal things. (“lololololololrofl”) But its quite interesting to look at the possibilities this will have in the future. Like this funny baby, demanded by Axel Springer Verlag, the ones being responsible for the german shitpaper “Bild” aka “Blöd” and the Budra Publishers. Its called “Leistungsschutzrecht” which would consolidate the monopolic status regarding news and kicking bloggers in their asses if the quote something sounding similar to something the crappapers wrote. And this can happen very fast, because they demand that even parts of sentences and topics are their copyrighted material. So, you blog about a topic being openly discussed in these days and it might sound similar, good, nice, but not in their eyes. They try to weaken free informations you get from the net at any price. So if you blog, you might get your first warning in the Three Strikes Concept in the near future. This is our society… GREAT. I say, FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS!!
And he came back again. This time ZWabbit was here, too and after a while banned him.

WordPress from 2.9.1 to 2.9.2
PayPal Donations Plugin from 1.4.5 to 1.4.6
Mediawiki from 1.15.1 to 1.16.0beta1
today nute joined our IRC Chan after he realized that I suspended his account for 7 days and immediately started ranting. Well we had our fun 😀 btw, already knowing his rant page? 😛 LINK Worth a
Here a pic for you to know who is the reason for the mess :
After months and months figting
against windmills for a at least almost clean forum by fighting against dumbasses like nute and no backing at all from the other mods I think its time to leave the forums at all for a while. I am tired of warning nute and being sheltered for it. I hate it that all disciplinary actions against him were reverted and I got kicked for doing something at all. I twice almost lost my status just becuse I tried to use the ways I was able to to make him STFU! Nute spreads BULLSHIT all over the forums and that way harms the project, but except me noone seems to care at all. I was asked more than once if nute is right with his stupid claims and was told they are afraid of the future of ROS because they think he is right. It was a week of fighting to make the others taking his rights to make new posts and edit his own to at least minimize the harm he causes, because they dont want to ban him at all. This starts to become like a few years ago with betov. Harming our Image everywhere just because he thinks its funny. Today nute opened a website reverting all our (especially mine) arguments by 360° and making us look like the bad guys. Noone cares at all. No, even more. I was told that its not easy to differentiate who is more harmful, me or nute. My last action was to split off this crap from a legit, but hijacked thread and dumping it into off topic, because I am not allowed to remove it, nor ban him finally. THX for the support once more! Sorry, but this starts to become bad for my own health and blood pressure. I am taking a break now!
