I was going through some resumes (or CVs) recently and it shocked me back into writing a blog post about them.
The CVs posted were for a junior software developer role in Sri Lanka. Hopefully these tips will help you along the way to find a good starter job.
You would think in 2003 that the Internet would be fast and reliable. Not so much where I live in Sri Lanka. The major and only wired provider Sri Lanka Telecom’s (SLT) ADSL is unusable as I write this.
Around the end of the month the SLT ADSL line starts to suffer. Usually when I change packages it seems to be fine for a few months then my connection seems to drop off constantly.
When I complain 2 guys show up and fiddle with the weather battered and corroded switch-box outside and make it work for a few more weeks.
I gave up a while ago. I’ve been using a Etisalat data dongle as a backup and it seems to be the only option that I have today.
I’m back on Linux, back in trouble as well. Ok so downloading and installing the latest deb file for VirtualBox doesn’t work out of a box.
I found this in the VirtualBox forum. It turns out you need to install these packages first.
sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic
Then install the deb file
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-4.2_4.2.10-84104~Ubuntu~quantal_amd64.deb
Usually I just update OSX to the latest. But I came across this after a quick search.
Skype 6.3 crashes on Mac OSX 10.8.3 – Skype Community
I use Skype quite often so I’m going to hold off for a bit longer until things are sorted out.
I got a LinkedIn request from a guy I know I should know. I have probably worked with him as well. But since he doesn’t have a profile picture I really can’t tell. So I can’t add him.
Please add profile pictures if you want to connect.
