Another day in my life around the IT World...

Hummmm... hoy día tengo harto pressing...así que particionaré mi brain address space in several environments... done !

S/390: Viendo el tunning del DB2 y unas pruebitas con PL/1,JCL,TSO,QMF,REXX...

AS/400 : Esto que me plantearon liderar, ver que correr Linux sobre OS/400...me parece bacán...ademas tengo que chequear una migración en CL y DB/2..

C/S: Me metí a ver algo de PHP y MySQL...estoy probando el DreamWeaver MX y unas extensiones,,,PHakt está OK pero lástima que esté metiendo ADODB,,,prefiero el acceso sin capas, directo desde los API's... por alli tambien tengo que ver algo de Apache, Visual Age For Java, JSP's, Servlets, RMI, Rational Suite Enterprise [quiero hacer un reversal enginnering de un sistema de 450 aplicaciones usando Rational Rose), tengo el DB2 UDB accesando BD remotas en S/390, AIX y Clients MSSQL,,, creación de doc's HTML, XML, PDF's.... DataWarehouses, Data Mining, ERP's, CRM's...

LINUX: Instalé el Red Hat 9.2, el PostgreSQL, el WAS,,, soy novato así que la configuración de los servicios me está haciendo pensar un poquito ...SAMBA, DNS, FIREWALL,etc...bla,bla,bla...

¿ Y de qué sirve todo ello ? Cómo están las cosas, no es que no sea agradecido, solo quería separar lo importante de lo esencial... porque en unos meses aquellos concocimientos los tendré que revisar y actualizar !!! ... eso me encanta... si se adiciona algo de Bussines Intelligence eso definiría algo de lo que hace un Solution Architect... Por suerte, intentar estar en el mainstream IT equivale -a veces- a la adrenalina segregada al ejecutar un buen riff de Satriani o Vai o,,, surfear una buena ola !!! ¿ y ? ¿ qué más ?? pffffrrr ...!!!!

Todo esto es deleznable.... ! Inteligencia, Conocimiento y Acknowledgment Management no es lo mismo que Sabiduría,,, Instrucción no es lo mismo que Educación... Inteligencia Emocional no es lo mismo que subliminar emociones e intensidad de sentimientos ... bla,bla,bla.. ah.. lo que daría por leer ahorita un fragmento de "El Loco" de Gibran Khalil !! ... ese fué el primer libro que me compré en mi vida ejerciendo mi soberana decisión... creo que fué cuando tenía 14 ó 15 años.... uff... eso fué hace siglos !!! ja,ja,ja,ja

Lo único que importa es esa pasión que llevas dentro del corazón..! Esa es tu esencia...!!!

Relax ! Stop ! Aunque no soy un Beatlemaníaco siempre he admirado sus canciones,, que armonías hechas con tanta simpleza ! Alli sí que había pureza e inocencia...Por eso, cada vez que accidentalmente escucho la radio, la desazón hace que regrese en el tiempo, pongo retro.. brrrrrommm !!! brrrrrommm !!! y........ hoy, en medio de todo esto, entre esta multiplicidad de plataformas IT (Inferno Technology) y ruidos encriptados entre las ondas hertzianas preferí cantar algunas cancioncitas de The Beatles ! bellow the lyrics...

Let it Be (= "Write in C" )

When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
"Write in C".

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers:
"Write in C"

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
LOGO's dead and buried,
Write in C.

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
For science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C.

If you've just spent nearly 30 hours,
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
BASIC's not the answer.
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
Pascal won't quite cut it.
Write in C.

Something

Something in the way it fails,
Defies the algorithm's logic!
Something in the way it coredumps...
I don't want to leave it now
I'll fix this problem somehow
Somewhere in the memory I know,
A pointer's got to be corrupted.
Stepping in the debugger will show me...

I don't want to leave it now
I'm too close to leave it now
You're asking me can this code go?
I don't know, I don't know...
What sequence causes it to blow?
I don't know, I don't know...

Something in the initializing code?
And all I have to do is think of it!
Something in the listing will show me...
I don't want to leave it now
I'll fix this tonight I vow!

Unix Man

He's a real UNIX Man
Sitting in his UNIX LAN
Making all his UNIX plans
For nobody.

Knows the blocksize from du(1)
Cares not where /dev/null goes to
Isn't he a bit like you
And me?

UNIX Man, please listen(2)
My lpd(8) is missin'
UNIX Man
The wo-o-o-orld is at(1) your command.
He's as wise as he can be
Uses lex and yacc and C
UNIX Man, can you help me At all?

UNIX Man, don't worry
Test with time(1), don't hurry UNIX Man
The new kernel boots, just like you had planned.
He's a real UNIX Man Sitting in his UNIX LAN
Making all his UNIX .plans For nobody ...
Making all his UNIX .plans For nobody.

Eleanor Rigby

Eleanor Rigby
Sits at the keyboard
And waits for a line on the screen
Lives in a dream
Waits for a signal
Finding some code
That will make the machine do some more.
What is it for?

All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
All the lonely users, why does it take so long?

Guru MacKenzie
Typing the lines of a program that no one will run;
Isn't it fun?
Look at him working,
Munching some chips as he waits for the code to compile;
It takes a while...
All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
All the lonely users, why does it take so long?

Eleanor Rigby
Crashes the system and loses 6 hours of work;
Feels like a jerk.
Guru MacKenzie
Wiping the crumbs off the keys as he types in the code;
Nothing will load.
All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
All the lonely users, why does it take so long?
