P wins by default

This is amazing and hilarious at the same time

Oh it's on, PvJ! EXIF data is extremely important (to me). Its like an ID3 tag on an MP3. Necessary for good order.

iPod: Well played, sir. Although, I suffer equally and am equally pissed off that it failed in the first 3 months of purchase without any form of abuse. You'll be happy to know that my replacement has served 2 years and counting.

Marc, I would love to take credit for causing you to want to mega /wrist, but my conscience tells me I should do the right thing instead and point out a few things =).

  • I bought my camera during the China trip, and the first thing on my mind after suddenly becoming the owner of a DSLR was to take heaps of snaps and learn how to use it, not sit back and check if I had the timer right.
  • I (as would any reasonable person) did not see the link between the photos I took and your meticulous demand to order your albums in a certain way. You had your camera, and the assumption was I would be contributing to your collection, rather than being responsible for it.
  • Nevermind the mislabeled dates, I didn’t consider /throat after a portion of our photos were evaporated due to your Ipod failure (most notably the Malaysia photos, and of course the Terracotta Warrior shots =)).
  • I don’t recall ever needing to know the precise date or time a particular shot was taken. I am thoroughly content with the following album layout: Year Month Location/Event’

  • 2007 June Adelaide COP Conference
  • 2007 September Misc
  • 2008 January New Years Day Out
  • 2008 October Sculpture by the Sea Bondi to Tamarama

Your Honour, the defence rests.

This is so goddamn awesome. I know its unfair to continually blame you Charlie. But I will do it anyway.

iPhomo 8 caked hardcore. I backed up religiously, as in my backups were always current, but unfortunately, I didn't keep a copy of every backup. So somewhere down the track, iPhomo broke some links here which built up and decided not to keep me apprised. Instead it showed me cached thumbnails leading me to believe everything was fine and dandy until one day I clicked on a thumbnail and realised it was a deadlink. Then I started clicking others...

So today will be the 3rd time that I manually reorder all the China photos...because you didn't bloody well spend 30 seconds to set up the timer before you started shooting.

I just want to give up on life. So much hardwork, so many times. Is a nicely ordered album worth all this effort? I must either be a) masochistic; or b) have OCD...

Speed Cameras: It is difficult for frequent drivers into unknown territory. There are signs before speed cameras so you have to be vigilant when driving into unknown areas and speeding. Cameras have a purpose to stop speeding which has obvious consequences. Very different from a rear to kerb offence which is enforced in off-peak times. Like I said, it has no saving pretence like speed cameras. Also as opposed to rear to kerb, its common knowledge and widely accepted that speeding is a punishable offence. Speed at your own risk (of which I'm sure we all have).

Einfield: he had it coming. I don't think anyone sympathised with his situation. We all eagerly awaited his downfall. It was never about the speeding. The fact that it happened in a school zone only makes it worse.

Re speed vs criminals: speeding (upto 30 or 45km?) isn't an offence which attracts a criminal record eg if you speed over 15km, you'll get booked but you won't get arrested and end up with a criminal record. Offences like break and enter do. So the burden is a lot higher and a lot more work is involved.

Speed cameras snap up pictures which provides pretty solid evidence on the face (if they have the security tag on it hawhawhaw). There aren't cameras around every corner to catch every burglar and rapist.

$24,000 for first home buyers

Sounds like a pretty good time to buy a home?

Social injustice.
Career drivers losing their licence in 1 day.
Time for another letter.

You gotto get this

John, Kwong, Eric etc, I'm guessing you might already have seen this Ferrari ad, but here it is anyway. The gong bridge (0:43-0:50 secs) is pretty neat too. Ah the harmoniously beautiful sounds of brilliant and pure engines.

An older article on fun by Sam deBrito, but a good one that I hadn't read.

'"the goal of practice is always to keep our beginner's mind. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few"

I think this is part of the joy or fun of novelty: we come to things with a beginner's mind and we see marvelous possibility and that makes us feel larger.

However, finding new or novel things to do all the time can be difficult and it's the unpredictablity of novelty that makes it all the more delightful.
