SW or ST...

This question been ask by one of my interviewer. A straightforward question, do you prefer application or infrastructure. I said both. It is does not mean as a interview candidate, I cannot make up my mind but,I want switch over my role to application to learn new things.

If in a interview session if some one say they like SW and ST, it means the call is genuine. And in IT world we cannot stop learning.

I've been tired. Unbelievably tired.

by Ron K. In reply to So?

I'm giving in to it and sleeping. I'm not noticing any other deleterious symptoms so at this point I'm just going to blitch about being tired, even after high octane coffee.<br>
Maybe, if I ignore it long enough, it'll go away and I'll be back to 'normal'. <br>
I don't like it at all.

I'll give you two tickets to the Truck race at Bristol, TN, in August if you think you'll use them. I'm quite serious.

Alas, a rain-check

I'm still trying to plan my next Stateside visit. I'm trying to get together the necessary for a proper road-trip and look in on a few of the TR peeps who live in the bits of the US that I've never been to.

I'm sort of waiting to see if the oil goes away because your wonderful Prez - either by design or stupidity - kept calling BP (a company half American) "British Petroleum", a name they dropped in 1997.

Name changes have to come from the field.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Alas, a rain-check

Corporate attempts to impose them won't work. If your company has been known as 'British Petroleum' or 'Kentucky Fried Chicken' for decades, it's going to take years for customers to drop the old name and use the new one. This is especially true when the new name is just an abbreviation of the old one. The Blackwater mercenary company that shot up Iraq changed its name 18 months ago; they're still referred to as 'the company formerly known as Blackwater' in all media reports.

But is HAS been BP for years

by neilb@uk In reply to Name changes have to come ...

Decades, even. Over here, anyway.

The change happened long before the official adoption thirteen years ago. It's the reason why the company officially adopted "BP" to align it with the public perception.

I do reckon the Prez has finally caught on to that although he's not mentioned the oil spill much at all, lately, now it's become obvious that BP are the only people who can stop it and if his rhetoric - solely for the Washington media - destabilises the company before the well is capped then the Gulf is, basically, buggered.
