Xbox One e VodafoneStation2

XboxLogoHo appena completato il passaggio verso Vodafone della mia linea telefonica di casa.
Tutta la procedura è andata a buon fine senza problemi tranne la connessione a Xbox Live.

Il problema risiede su una procedura automatica che la Vodafone Station fa partire ai dispositivi connessi tramite cavo ethernet.
Infatti mi ero accorto di questa modalità durante la prima configurazione, dove una volta collegato il computer via cavo, il browser si era aperto su una pagina di configurazione della VS.

Per risolvere il problema sulla Xbox, è sufficiente aprire Internet Explorer dalla console, e navigare verso un sito qualsiasi. Il browser della Xbox viene rediretto verso la procedura di configurazione della VodafoneStation così come avviene per il pc. E’ necessario annullare la procedura e uscire dal wizard di configurazione.

Una volta effettuato questo piccolo passagio, xbox riesce a collegarsi correttamente al servizio xbox live.

Letterina a Babbo Natale – Riccardo

Lettera scritta da Riccardo (5 anni) a Babbo Natale.

 

Caro Babbo Natale,

Come stai? Stai bene o stai male?

Sarai tanto impegnato per preparare tutti i regali da dare a tutti i bambini, se non arrivi prima da me… va beh, non importa aspetterò nel mio letto.

Io mi chiamo Riccardo Casu, dall’ultima volta che ti ho scritto (lo scorso anno) sono stato abbastanza bravo, ogni tanto faccio il monellino, ma scusa… è perchè mi dimentico sempre di fare il bravo!!

A questo punto ti dico i miei regali (Con relativa foto per non sbagliare)

  1. Bacugan
  2. Mario Giochi invernali – WII
  3. Action Figure deluxe con veicolo superaccessoriato di materia grigia e 2×2
  4. Laserset di Ben10
  5. Pulmino di Ben10
  6. Navicella trasformabile di pungilione
  7. UP – WII

Lo so che sono tante cose, per me tutte vanno bene… per te, decidi te.

Per favore Babbo Natale, le porti orecchini e collana alla mamma? E al papà no!

Per favore Babbo Natale, al papà gli porti una statua?

Per Andrea Pannolini!

Ricordati della mia Nonna e dei Nonni, x loro decidi quello che vuoi.

Ti allego un mio disegno

 

Tanti Baci,
Riccardo

Last E-MBA day @MIP

image Wow, that was tougher then expected.

Today is my last day @MIP for an Executive MBA with specialization on ICT which I started in September 2007.

A two year long journey, where I’ve learned so many new subjects, each one of them not part of a common training path for who like me started with technical background in information technology.

All the subjects, lectures and testimonials resulted very interesting and relevant for my daily work, having the opportunity to formalize many concept you are surrounded with during your work; this also allow to see things with a different/wider prospective.

I must admit that, having changed job right after deciding to start the emba, was not one of the best choice: a consulting company really need 110% of your time and effort (and I’m using a conservative figure); but in my case both changes were very needed.

Anywhow, this is not the end yet: still a couple of exam to finish plus the final project work. Good thing is that I will start to accumulate again holidays (while during the last years I was using them for the master) and be able to give some time back to my family.

 

Finally, I will definitely recommend a path like mine to everybody who’s looking to improve management skills, which are definitely needed if we want to have a competitive advantage to perform well on our job, and why not: to improve our career as well.

HTH,
Alberto

Ready, steady… go!

Ok, I think the site is now pretty ok and set-up.
I finally managed to setup the hosting on seekdotnet.com and set-up graffiticms for this site.

I also found some nice plug-in which I am currently testing, mostly about site theme (using one of Dana’s themes porting) and blog components.
I’ve also set-up latitude, of which I am currently little scared: do I want everybody to know where I am? I just think I’ll try it for some time.
I am extremely happy I was able to import my old post from my previously blog, which was kindly deleted by the hoster 🙂
Everything was done using a backup of the CommunityServer database, and an internal migration procedure of GraffitiCMS. Everything run smoothly, but the documentation (as it’s already known) is very pour.

Now there are alot of old stuff, and some new that my come in the next period.

Some nice reference about GraffitiCMS I found so far are:

plus others…

More stuff will come in the future, whenever (if ever) I’ll find some time :=
We’ll see how it goes.

New Personal site: English and GraffitiCMS

Hello! This is my new personal space re-startup.
After a first attempt using drupal for the site www.casu.it (where I succesfully posted lot of picture of myself from my wedding time: 2003) to the birth of my first son Riccardo, which ended when I changed job and company (and then lost the free hosting 🙂

Well, I changed job on Februrary 2008 and now got the time to make it back again (wow more than a year and a half just passed by…).
I chose two basic initial rules:

  • Use English for posting
    things a readable from more people (though they are less readable for italians… and that’s ok anyway 🙂
  • Use GraffitiCMS as a platform
    Although it has been defined as a kind of “playground platform” from telligent, I founded it pretty smart. It might not fit my need in the future… but I’ll try it for now.

I will also try to reimport all the previous post which were previously published at blogs.devleap.com/alberto_casu

Stay tuned
Alberto
