My Week with DLJ!
Last week I spent 3 days doing a COBIT 5 course with DLJ as the trainer. I walked into this not knowing what to expect.

All of a sudden I'm surrounded by people with two masters degrees and PHD's etc. All major players in some large business.

The course material was different to what I was used to since it was all theory and management type stuff. I'm generally someone who breaks things down into component parts to understand how things work. Which is quite funny cos DLJ mentioned this Douglas Adams quote in the course: “If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a non-working cat.”

So I think it was good for me to challenge myself with a different way of thinking. It's also good to understand big business and how they manage IT.

Yesterday Rora, DLJ, and I had pizza and watched Star Wars at Rora's place. It was good.

Thanks for the pizza Mr DLJ! My shout next time. (Either that or I cook.)

And of course, what Mr Modesty forgets to mention is that he passed his exam

(and I suspect arranged a date with the very attractive lady from ANZ Bank)

Wow; I'm envious!

Oh well, it's good to know that the possibility of really great company and pizza, may only be a 19 hour plane ride away. Shy


19 fucking hours!!
