The hard drive on the PC was nearly full so I decided to offload all my pictures to the NAS.
Jesus what a palaver.
Copy all the images to an external hard drive
Delete anything obviously fucked up - out of focus, irrecoverably under or over exposed
Sort things into some sort of folder...
Was it this bad before I left - I don't remember it being this bad.
Just everyone being cheerfully incompetent, and not even good enough at what they do to realise they are completely useless and unprofessional.
I just paid a fucking fortune to have my car serviced. Every time the...

The risk of provoking a janer like shitstorm notwithstanding...holy fuck this is nasty!
some NSFW imagery included
So. What will it be?
On the one hand I remember the complete scepticism the iPod was greeted with, and now digital music is the norm. So did Steve Jobs digify the world and open the door for digital media of all kinds, from music to film to books. And did this destroy the internet by making...
I doing something at work (unusual I know)
An I'd like to create a diagram showing markets for different things and where these are fulfilled from.
Think something like trade flows
So ideally I'd like a map of the world
Scale circles over America/Europe and Asia showing market volume
..because no one else would.
I figured it would end badly, so of all possible outcomes I think this is the best.
There was a businessman a while back who couldn't pay his ransom so they hacked his little daughter up with...
So. what do people think?
The CNN journalist who had the temerity to ask him a couple of awkward questions last week is being trolled pretty badly on facebook. I've been following along and dipping my oar in now and again, but it's depressing stuff.
Anyone have any strong opinions?
Why do I...
Notes from producers meeting:
Congratulations to the special effects department on the new Nigella Bot.
Well done the publicity team for keeping her death a secret all these years.
We have watched episode 1 and would like to suggest the following:
Please increase Nigella Bots breasts by two...
I really really hate it when people include "Regards" and "Joe Bloggs" as part of their email signature.
It turns what sould be a couple of simple back and forth comments (like a IM via email) into some wierd passive agressive exchange. You know the formality of the salutation is fake because...
Anyone else have access yet?
It's very cool
There is a on window for creating the screen, with button etc and then another where you design the control flow out of jigsaw pieces. ie all of the standard statements you would like like while and for loops have jigsaw pieces that you click...
I'm looking to get a Google Nexus One phone.
There are two versions available
3G coverage on networks that use the 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100 MHz frequency bands (recommended for use on AT&T in the US)
3G coverage on networks that use the 900 MHz, AWS, and 2100 MHz frequency bands...
I have some sort of box in the apartment connected to the phone line and I have a wireless router router plugged into that for the wi-fi.
I was never able to get any decent speed on a torrent, and the trauma of working out how to portforward through two boxes was too much for me.
........sounds obvious after you see the geometry.
Why spot focusing and recomposing is a bad idea
I wonder though would I really like to go back to uning the multiple AF points?
I've been reading lots of tamale recipes and investigating different ways of making them, for the blog thing.
I made some nice sweet ones last night - basically as it was late and I wasn't in the mood to make an elaborate meat filling, I just wanted to play around with the dough. They were...
