This day promises to be a full one at work. I have the IMS Global Enterprise Specification to read, and form my initial thoughts on the same. You see, the OU has honored me immensely by appointing me as the OU Contact person for the upcoming IMS Global Enterprise v2.0 specification! That is an unbelievable honor – being a PhD and that too in the first year, and entrusted with such an immense responsibility. May I say W00t?
I gotta redo the proposal a wee bit. According to Rob, the introduction isn’t crisp enough, and some definitions are unfortunately missing. I will rectify those glaring mistakes and omissions and finally can start with the IMS Global read-up. That’s the plan for today
Update: So a new system is headed my way. Here are the specs.
CPU: E6600 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz Socket LGA775, 4MB Cache, w/ Cooler (Box)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4, P965, Socket 775, Firewire, ATX, GbLAN, DDR2, 2xPCI-Ex16
RAM: 2×1024 MB CL5, 667MHz, DDR2 PC5300
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint T166 500GB, SATA2, 16MB, 7200RPM (300Mbps)
DVDR/RW: Samsung DVD+RW, 18x, Dual, Black, OEM, SATA
GFX: MSI GeForce 7600GT, 256MB GDDR3, PCI-E, 2xDVI-I, Passive Cooling
So this behemoth of a system should be delivered soon! Ich freue mich schon drauf! The idea is to use my older system as a File Server and place it outside and boot into it from time to time to download the latest torrents and just keep it as a download workhorse + file server. The whole setup will be connected using a 1000Mbps switch, which I shall go purchase this evening from Media Markt Heerlen oda Aachen. Should work out IMHO!
On the work front, all goes well, as I rework the proposal, a lot of editing, moving stuff around, clarifying the official position of the OTEC, removing references to ID theories and models to Pedagogic patterns and the like.
Update at 11, the package is in Amsterdam and should be here if not tomorrow, then day after. In other news, due to interest expressed by certain parties in the recent appearance change, I’ve jacked up a pic of ol’ me with me chums in Heerlen. This is a recent pic (from Sunday) with the Bhatias. I really will miss accompanying them to Berlin. Any upchucking that might occur is purely coincidental.
