I am a seasoned software designer, developer and consultant. In business since 1998. Having worked for many years in public and private sectors in different countries, I have gained deep understanding of various approaches to software development processes. Exposure to multiple cultures, work with demanding clients in fast paced environments developed my communication and business skills. My approach is result-oriented, constructive and pragmatic.
BBC informs us, that a major fraud, targeting account information of private clients was prevented by a new government body, called "Soca". The acronym stands for "Serious Organized Crime Agency" which I find rather amusing.
Когда в английской прессе разгорался скандал вокруг иракской войны (а было это после того, как коалиции не удалось найти так называемое оружие массового уничтожения, будто старый добрый Калашников - это детский совочек, и им нельзя перебить несколько миллионов), и премьер министр ея Величества Великобритании и Северной Ирландии Тони Блеэр участвовал во всевозможных телешоу, призваных убедить всех в его первозданной и непоруганной белизне и пушистости, стало модным со стороны отдельных его сограждан называть его Истинным Именем.
As mentioned earlier, I have been suffering from increasing numbers of spam comments. I got tired of it and installed the anti-spam module for Drupal, mentioned in that blog entry. It looks like with a little twisting and adjusting, it catches almost all of the garbage. Cool!
As already mentioned, profits are rising, and the investment industry expects unusually high bonuses this year. Goldman Sachs have allocated more than half a million USD per employee on average. Naturally, most of the money will go
It looks like investment banks' profits will be exceptionally high this year as well. On the radio they have been saying that once again "those people with six figure salaries will get extra high bonuses". Not me, unfortunately.
Lately I am getting lots of spam comments to my blog entries, mainly concerned with pornographic sites or anti-impotence drugs sale. This is really annoying, and although my comments are not published automatically, but are rather stored in approval queue, it wastes more and more of my time to go through it and delete all of them.
A valid option would be to use a captcha module for Drupal. I tried it, but it obviously has some bugs, which prevents even humans from posting, so it is not really useful.
Those of you who use Microsoft Outlook know about its address auto-completion functionality. You type a few letters into the address field and Outlook presents you with a list of possible completions. The list includes those recipients, to whom you sent e-mails recently. The problems start when an address is no longer relevant, either because the person has got a new one, or you don't write him/her many letters any more.
