alright! (0 comments)
since BOFH-stuff ain't happening these days (everybody's on vacation) i decided to rename my blog from BOFH-log to BORING-log. this has two advantages: first of all i do not disappoint anybody when not blogging about BOFH-stuff only, and secondly i can write about whatever i like. but since this "whatever" will be related to my everyday life, i'm sure it will be boring. so, "BORING-log" seems just perfectly fitting! so, have fun...

yo! (1 comments)
i phoned IKEA yesterday and they had an answering-machine guiding me through the entire request i had. so it was like "for which IKEA-shop do you want infos? press 1 for ..." - i punched "4" for the nearest IKEA-shop. then on and on, punching numbers on my mobile. after 1 minute and 52 seconds i got my question answered without even talking a single word, just pressing numbers. ok, no big deal, but i thought, hey, what a good service for users? like a user is calling because s/he's having troubles. the answering-machine could ask things like... * "do you have windows installed? if no, press '1', if yes, press the 'hang-up'-button" or * "do you want to print? if yes, press '1'" [...] - "is the printer turned on? if no, press the 'hang-up'-button, ..." or * "do you want to worship your sysadmin? if yes, press '666', if no press the 'hang-up-button" or * "are you sure your minor problem is worth wasting precious time of your sysadmin? sure you are sure it is NOT! so press the 'hang-up'-button NOW!" hm... i think this would really make my live easier and more peaceful! i will propose this to my boss...

patchsee... (2 comments)
well, nothing to report from my office for today. about 75% of my co-workers are on vacation. so there's not much ranting and even less emails with requests - good for me. the only things that still prevents me from having a great time at the office is the broken air-conditioner. it's now broken since thursday, and we're having the hottest days since ... guess what - thursday. i hope they'll fix it soon! well... i was watching this picture today, and a few hours later i was pointed to this link. i think patchsee is pretty cool. maybe i'll propose this stuff to my boss one day, if our server-room looks just as shown on the pic above.
