יום רביעי, ינואר 21, 2009

במסגרת מפגש של קבוצת מנהלי הפרוייקטים שלשום בערב הוצגה פעילות של חברת AQA הפועלת לשילוב אנשים עם מוגבלויות בתהליכי בדיקות תוכנה. מקור הרעיון הוא בדנמרק - כאשר בנו השלישי של טורקיל סונה אובחן כלוקה בתסמונת אספרגר, ניסה אביו לבחון אפשרויות תעסוקתיות הולמות לבנו. הוא זיהה שלבנו יש אינטליגנציה טובה מחד, קשיים חברתיים מאידך וגם תשומת לב לפרטים, כושר חזותי מפותח, דייקנות, קפדנות, דקדקנות וצורך בחזרתיות. כישורים אלו מהווים יתרון בבדיקות תוכנה, בעיקר במקומות שבהם יש משימות בדיקה שוחקות. הוא הקים חברה בשם ספשיאלסטרן המעסיקה כ-50 איש בבדיקות תוכנה. חלקם ממוקמים אצל לקוחות...

How to remove MSI dependency on .NET Framework 1.1

יום שני, פברואר 26, 2007

I wanted to install some tools for my presentation about Developer's Toolbox at the Oracle .Net Forum and one of the tools that I wanted to show was Roy's regulator. The regulator was developed and packed via the Visual Studio 2003 Setup Project and the the msi included dependency on Framework 1.1.

If you own a Thinkpad Notebook you probably aware of the cooling fan noise annoyances, if you suffer from the noise and want to have a quiet life and gain control of the fan speed take a look at the Thinkpad Fan Controller. The Thinkpad Fan Controller allows the user to control fan activity based on the system temperature (or manual of course...) This Visual C++ project controls the fan via port IO to the embedded controller. p.s. though it was build for the T4x series... its working great on my T60p.
