I don’t think Canon has let me down yet. I bought my first digital camera sometime in 2003, and it was a Canon PowerShot A40 (2MP). This first photo was taken with that camera. I loved that camera, but I found myself not carrying it with me as much as I’d like because it was bulky.
I’m on a break at work. I need coffee, and I’m not going to walk to Starbucks. Our kitchen has brewed coffee, so I’ll try it.
My AeroPress is still rocking since I bought it almost two months ago! Have you read my Aeropress review? It’s worth buying! I rarely go to Starbucks anymore, except to buy more coffee beans.
Earlier this week, Chris Marsden Twittered and wrote a blog post about his coming to Pasadena for a few days. So, we had a brief dialog through Twitter, and decided to meet for dinner (at Ichima Sushi) on Wednesday night. I figured he hasn’t had that too often, so it sounded fun. I was right, so he was at my mercy. Fortunately for him, the majority of sushi I order isn’t raw. 😉
We talked about a lot of stuff in the duration of the evening, and didn’t call it quits until 3 AM. Chris is awesome!
On Saturday, I received the iRiver iFP-899 I won on eBay. I immediately messed around with it for two hours. I must’ve made 5 unpublished podcasts that day. 😀
I like the size and shape. Since it’s triangular, the built-in mic can point at a certain direction for a more optimal positioning. The menus aren’t as simple as an iPod — there’s a learning curve with the click, long click, etc.
Our band, Phantom Scream, is still active. Whether I realize it or not, Doc and Bill are constantly working on new material. Last Friday was special because we all got together at Unchained Studios in San Dimas for band practice. We haven’t been there since our first show last April. We needed to hear ourselves in a room with better acoustics.
This is my favorite picture of all the ones taken. That smile is priceless:
As far as I’m concerned, the lyrics are even more abstract, and the sound is more progressive rock than ever before. I love it.
The last time I talked about Flickr was about two weeks ago. Due to a conversation I just had with a friend, I’ll write about it again.
James Ume. posted pictures from Japan onto his MSN Space. Sunday night, I viewed it in Firefox, and basically had to look through all his pictures. There wasn’t a way to pick and choose from thumbnails. I saw them all anyways (and he took a lot of pictures).
Today, he told me to view them in Internet Explorer. Apparently, Firefox isn’t supported. In IE, was able to see thumbnails at the bottom, and could pick and choose pictures.
Why do I like Flickr? Because it just works. It’s currently the best thing I’ve used. Free MSN Spaces offers 30MB/month, and free Flickr offers 20MB/month; but if it’s the best tool to use anyway, wouldn’t you use it?
