My three month stay at IBM has started, and so far it is going well. I arrived Sunday and had my first day Monday. The first day was spend doing administration: I got my picture taken for a chip card which is used for opening doors and for paying in the canteen. I also got a bunch of stuff about how I should look after the environment, how I should look after my own health (sit correctly at my desk), and especially about how I should take care not to leave any “IBM confidential” material lying around at my desk when I’m not there. Protecting the IP (”Imaginary Property”, ehh, I mean “Intellectual Property”) is taken pretty serious around here, but since I don’t expect to be involved in anything confidential I should be safe…
I have no pictures to show yet since i don’t have a way to get them off my camera. Back home I always just used the card reader in my monitor, but here I don’t have such a reader. So I will have to find and buy a USB cable (I couldn’t find the original before I left).
So that’s all for now!
Oh, just one more thing… VIFF 0.6 has been released last week. It has greatly improved performance, updated documentation, and various bug fixes. So please try it out!
