Confessions of your worst WTF moment 摘录

Standard

No.1
Our product was used by police forces to input data about people that are arrested and what they are charged with. It would also store digital mugshots and fingerprints, and electronically submit the fingerprints to the FBI. While testing, we would routinely use our own fingerprints for fake bookings that got inserted into the test database. Except for the time that I “temporarily” switched the test machines over to the production database and forgot to switch them back…

Cleaning up our production database was easy, but it took a court order signed by the superintendent of the Boston Police Department to remove my colleague’s fingerprints from the FBI database — she had booked herself under the name “Elroy Jetson”.

No.2
I was given a GPS system that was used on ships and given the task of getting a program to interface with it and collect co-ordinates. We didn’t have a manual for the device, but once I got it powered on, I found a big help button. I thought that might at least get us started with how to use it.
After pressing the button, it beeped a couple of times, and then the screen started flashing: Sending S.O.S. signal
Gosh damn – I unplugged the power cable, hoping the thing would turn off, but it must have had an emergency battery inside, because it carried on going, and there was no stopping it.
I waited, very anxiously, expecting a Sea King helicopter to appear outside the office at any moment, wondering how I was going to explain what had happened.
Fortunately – either because I was indoors and the signal didn’t get through or because the receiver of the signal realized an S.O.S. originating 100 miles inland probably wasn’t a real shipping incident – no sea king turned up. Phew.

No.3
I had just imported a bunch of old data into a new system, had taken about 5 hours and was due to go live two hours later, this was around 4 in the morning.
For some reason I tried to delete something:
DELETE from important_table; where id=4
Yeah, I didn’t notice the semicolon either. And no, there was no safety net.

No.4
I shipped my administrator password for an FTP site inside an open source project I was working on.

No.5
I worked for a large bank and added an error message to a piece of code that the application should never have been able to reach (theoretically)…
One Monday morning the unthinkable happened. The error message was proudly displayed on over 10,000 monitors across 1800 branches, and would return when you dismiss the message.
The message read: “If you can see this message the system is all F**KED UP and we might as well go home. Have a nice day.”
Thank goodness this happened before source control systems were implemented at the bank.

No.6
I was logged into my new dedicated server box and configuring some firewall rules over ssh. The first thing I did was set it to not accept any connections from anyone. Then I saved it to test that before going through and adding the various ports I wanted to allow.
Needless to say, the first rule worked…

No.7
When I set up a new VMware instance at the evening and went home keeping it running. What I didn’t noticed was that I used the IP of the Nameserver as IP of the VMware instance. Suddenly all hosts in our building tried to connect to the VMware for DNS lookups.
Our whole network was practically down.
Since this was a VMware our Admins were not able to track down the MAC address. So they had to plug off every single computer in our office (~500) until the problem was gone.
At the next day I found a letter on my desk: “Who dares to switch this computer on will die”.

No.8
Near the end of the dot com bubble, my company was doing research on a sector of the market. We had been given a database with company names in that sector, and we weren’t sure if many of them were still viable companies. I wrote a quick and dirty app which looped through the database and tried the URLs to see if it got a valid response… the assumption being that a 404 would be a failed company. The app used the IE browser COM component and actually displayed the pages while it processed. I split the database into three sections and set it to run on three machines beginning at the close of business and running overnight. My cube was extremely proximate to the CEO and CFO.
Upon arrival the next day, I discovered that the database was not at all accurate. Apparently it was open to the public for update, and numerous spammers and porn companies had inserted records and URLs of their own. This, in itself, was not terrible. What was terrible is that many of the pages when loaded, spawned pop-up windows of extremely explicit details and while the program moved on to the next page, the pop-up windows were orphaned and visible for all to see.
I had some ‘splaining to do.

No.9
I rewrote a whole module that was working perfectly but that looked “messy” to me. I had managed to convince my boss that it was the Right Thing To Do, and the rewrite took me 3 weeks.
I still remember the pearls of sweat running from my armpits as my boss, looking over my shoulder, was commenting on bug after bug in my new shiny super-clean module…
I’m no longer “rewriting from scratch” without a really good reason.

No.10
Ooh! Embarrassing confessional time. The first one that comes to mind was shortly after I switched to OS X from years on Windows and had basically forgotten anything I knew about unix.
I was working on a personal project and decided I was at a point where I should backup my stuff. So I opened up the command line:
gzip *.py
Oh man! It zipped every file individually! Right, I have to tar them first. Okay
rm *.gz
Wait! Why is my directory empty?! Oh no….
Yeah, I also forgot that gz doesn’t copy and zip, it zips in-place.
I got lucky, though, and still had most of the files open in my editor.
This was what convinced me to finally install a version control system on my home machine and use it for my own stuff.

看新闻必须记住的英语单词

Standard

英语新闻标题总是力求用有限的字数来表达新闻的内容,为此,在措词上尤其要狠下功夫,选词尽可能经济达意、简短明了,偏爱选用那些短小精悍或字母最少的动词。这是因为短小易懂、形象生动的措词不仅能增强新闻的简洁性和可读性,而且还能节省版面篇幅。
如表示“破坏”或“损坏”一词意义的动词,标题一般不用damage,而用一些较之简短的词,如hit,harm,hurt, ruin或wreck等。又如表示“放弃”这一概念的动词,标题一般不用abandon,而用drop,give up,quit,skip或yield 等,表示“爆炸”之类的动词意义时,一般不用 explode,而用blast,crash, ram或smash等词。简而言之,英语新闻标题大都喜欢选用字形短小、音节不多而意义又比较广泛的词。
这类动词在标题中屡见不鲜,读者平时阅读时不妨多加留意,这对于提高英语水平,尤其是熟悉英语同义动词,无疑是大有裨益的。为便于读者更好地理解英语新闻标题,现再列举一些常见诸报端的标题小词,以备不时之需:

怎样避免职场白痴地发脾气

Standard

转自沪江英语

  Scream at the boss? Snap at a colleague? Throw your cell phone into your computer monitor?
  朝老板大喊大叫?对同事厉声斥责?把手机砸在电脑显示器上?

  In most cases anger isn’t an illness but a normal human emotion that causes problems when it flares too hot, too often. People can learn to manage their anger with practical skills。
  在大多数情况下,愤怒并不是一种疾病,而是一种正常的人类情绪,只不过在过度、过于频繁发生的时候才会导致问题。通过实际的技巧,人们可以学会管理自己的愤怒情绪。

  Psychologists believe that individual talk therapy is the most effective for anger problems. Anger doesn’t occur by itself. It’s nested and embedded with a lot of other emotions — sadness, grief, shame. Angry people want to talk, given the opportunity。
  心理学家认为,个人对话治疗是解决愤怒问题最有效的方法。愤怒并非单独产生的,它还隐含和嵌入着许多其它情绪,比如伤心、悲痛、羞辱等等。一旦有机会,愤怒的人总是想倾诉。

  Tips to Help Keep A Temper in Check
  有助于控制脾气的小贴士

  –Calculate what your anger is costing you. Many people with anger problems think anger gives them an edge, and establishes superiority. Instead, you just look like an idiot。
  计算愤怒的成本。许多患有愤怒问题的人都会认为愤怒给予他们一定的优势,让他们具有优越感。其实恰恰相反,你看起来就像个白痴。

  –Be aware of how you talk to yourself. If you keep saying how awful this is and making yourself feel alike a victim, you will get more angry。
  小心自言自语的方式。如果你总是在说这件事情是多么糟糕,让你自己感觉十足是个受害者的话,你就会变得更加愤怒。

  –If you feel a blowup coming on, give yourself a time-out before acting on it. Wait 15 minutes before you say something, or an hour before you send an email. Keep your options open. If it’s not going to be important in an hour, then let it go. It’s not worth getting angry about。
  如果你感觉自己就要大发雷霆,那么不妨在爆发之前稍作停顿。过15分钟再开口,或者是过一个小时再发邮件。给自己多个选择。如果在一个小时之内这件事情变得不再那么重要的话,那么就让它过去吧。它不值得你为之生气。

  –Keep an “anger log” to monitor what makes you angry. Learn to identify and avoid your triggers。
  记下”愤怒日志”,监控导致自己愤怒的因素。学习辨认和避免触发愤怒的扳机。

  –Don’t ruminate on past affronts or injustices。
  莫要沉湎于过去所受的侮辱或者不公平。

  –Get physical, without fists. When your primitive brain senses a threat, it sets off the ‘fight or flight’ cascade of hormones. Opt for flight instead of fight and burn off the extra adrenaline and cortisol with exercise. Even a brisk walk will help calm you down。
  以锻炼消耗精力,不用拳头。当你的原脑感觉到危险的时候,它会发出”打或逃”的激素链。选择逃而非打,通过锻炼消耗掉多余的肾上腺素和皮质醇。即便是一次轻快的散步也会有助于你平和情绪。

  –Reframe the situation. Instead of seeing every inconvenience or frustration as a personal affront, imagine a benign explanation。
  重新组织自己面临的状况。与其把每一次困难或者沮丧的经历看作个人遭受的侮辱,倒不如设想一个善意的解释。

  –Find a constructive solution to the issue at hand. Ask yourself: What do I need to be okay right now? That shifts the focus from how the other person needs to be punished to how I need to respond in a healthy way。
  找出一个建设性的解决办法应对手头的问题。问问你自己:我现在需要怎么做才能保持平静?这样就会将注意力转移,从专注于考虑对方必须受到怎样的惩罚,转移到要怎样才能以一种良好的方式应对。

自我介绍范文
Good morning !
It is really my honor to have this opportunity for an interview,
I hope i can make a good performance today. I’m confident that I can succeed.
Now i will introduce myself briefly
I am 26 years old,born in shandong province .
I was graduated from qingdao university. my major is electronic.and i got my bachelor degree after my graduation in the year of 2003.
I spend most of my time on study,i have passed CET4/6 . and i have acquired basic knowledge of my major during my school time.
In July 2003, I began work for a small private company as a technical support engineer in QingDao city.Because I’m capable of more responsibilities, so I decided to change my job.
And in August 2004,I left QingDao to BeiJing and worked for a foreign enterprise as a automation software test engineer.Because I want to change my working environment, I’d like to find a job which is more challenging. Morover Motorola is a global company, so I feel I can gain the most from working in this kind of company ennvironment. That is the reason why I come here to compete for this position.
I think I’m a good team player and I’m a person of great honesty to others. Also I am able to work under great pressure.
That’s all. Thank you for giving me the chance.
