Programmers without borders
I realize my company is a bit late for the trend, but we too have been, in the past year or so, moving some work to outsourcing companies abroad (awaking markets). As a general policy we only send out projects that are not deemed to be our core technology focus, meaning that the company does not want to deal with learning and mainting software that is not directly involved with what we do. So for example, we have a client who wants to integrate our product into his enterprise enviornment, we would ......

Books I just finished reading (Why not to start reading Dan Brown)
Hi, I'm back from the Jewish new year holiday, also known as Rosh-Hashana.

What can ......

Anybody want's to buy me a birthday present???
Back to geekiness :-) Via Engadget Logitech's Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset Almost forgot to mention that Logitech rolled out a new Bluetooth cellphone headset yesterday. It’s usually hard to get all that jazzed up about yet another wireless headset, but the big deal about the Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset is that it uses a little something called Adaptive Frequency Hopping (we’re not entirely sure how this is different from Bluetooth’s integrated frequency hopping spread-spectrum—FHSS) to ......

Red Sea Jazz Festival 2004 - Continued....
Because of a comment on my blog, I decided to write a bit more on the Jazz festival I went to. I thought this would be a geek centric blog, but I find, that I don't have that much geekiness to blog about :) which I believe in a way is good! So to the tale of the festival. The Red Sea Jazz festival is an Israeli tradition going back 18 years now, it began small as all thing begin, and has grown over the years, to be a true international festival, although, naturally most visitors are Israeli. It is ......

Grayson - The trailer
Grayson Trailer - Via the Kevin Schofield Weblog If you haven't seen this already - please run and do... Let's hope they make a full length motion picture out of this. Grayson I just found this, surfing the web this morning -- an independent filmmaker made a trailer for a movie that will never get made: "Grayson." (look uner "movies") The heyday of superheroes has long since past. Dick Grayson has grown up, retired from the superhero sidekick gig, married Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl) and is living ......

Back to the drawing board (actually back to MS Word)
Well the last big project is mostly behind me, which means I delivered all I had to, and now waiting for the rejects, stuff that need to be fixed etc. Actually I delivered it on thursday, but had to endure some questions and problems that our indian engineer friends encountered (imagine me, debugging their C++ code, me a simple VB coder, but amazingly I did it :) ). So today, I back to my (almost) least favorite work, creating Technical Designs for new features, we are revamping the software API ......

Living in Israel is hard for a geek!
What can I say, it is a hard life being a geek in Israel. Nothing is available, and even when it is - it is so expensive. Yes you can consider this a rant, whine, whatever, just that when I look on the web and see all these wonderfull gadgets that can be mine, or all those available TV chanells, or even something as simple as doughnuts or bagels.... You know, you have no idea, you in the US of A, how good you have it. One advantage though :( it helps me save my money (for what, who knows?!) ......

Back from the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat
Just returned from a company wide week long leave, which means that the company (or at least the Israeli branch) closed down for a whole week. Why? don't ask me, they decided that this will save costs, and it was good for me. since I usually don't know how to go on vacation (I have over 40 days to use :() And back to work, into the middle of an urgent project, involving too many developers spread out on three continets (at least), and too many unknowns. I'm right at the center of it, with deadlines ......
