Slowly but surely I returning my first “business” love back into my life. That’s a good thing. If I can continue this trend you will see a marked improvement in my attitude.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
I walk down the street and the guy waiting for the bus — who has been waiting there for God knows how long — suddenly find something more interesting to look at than a live human being. I do the same.
Do I avoid looking a stranger in the eyes because I don’t want to make him uncomfortable, or do I turn my eyes so he can’t look into me?
What is there in me that I don’t want him to see?
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Why Am I So Frustratd By Flickr?
Yesterday I posted four shots of a really cute girl on Flickr. While it’s my opinion of my work, I think that these were four really good portraits as well. Yet not a single comment has been posted to them on Flickr.
While I just re-upped my Flickr account for another year back in July, I am seriously considering shutting my photos off from the public and only linking to those I want ITP readers to see (of course I’ll continue posting shots on JalapeÃ±o Beach). It’s not like anyone is going to miss them since they don’t get many views anyway…. Don’t mind me, I am just being outwardly jealous of those who receive unconditional Flickr-Love even if their shots aren’t outstanding.
Little Willy, Little Willy, Where For Art Thou Little Willy?
Over a month ago you purchased a DSLR and yet you’ve yet to show us a single shot. I know you have much talent, I want to be inspired by your shots.
It Might Be Time To Change My Password Management
I (apparently) have an account with a music marketing company who sends out email each week. I really want to get onto their website and listen to some of the music they are pimping but cannot remember my password for the life of me.
All attempts at cataloging and providing easy retrieval of my passwords has failed. I need a password management system that is safe, portable, and doesn’t require software installation on a specific computer.
Anyone have a solution? Anyone?
Wait, That’s Not Supposed To Happen!
For an upcoming excursion I decided to purchase another 4GB Compact Flash card for my camera. I’ve had good luck using SanDisk Compact Flash cards so I wanted to buy another one to match the one I own. Because href=”http://www.amazon.com” target=”_blank”>Amazon is so awesome I was able to find the receipt for my previous SanDisk Compact Flash card purchase. Much to my surprise, the price of the SanDisk Compact Flash card has gone up by about $10! WTF?! The price of technology is supposed to drop over time, not increase.
Now I have to decide whether I want wait for the price to drop, or just bite the bullet and buy it at the higher price.
George’s Tonight? Why Not?
I need a kick-start for my running routine. Last night it didn’t happen because I was too hungry by the time I left the office and I was easily swayed by the presence of rain (not that I wasn’t going to sweat so much that it looked like I’d been through a rain storm anyway. Expect me at George’s. Don’t expect me by 6pm. Expect me to be a short-timer as I have plenty of things which need to be done tonight.
In other news I need alter my eating schedule. Eating early breakfasts, lunches, and dinners wreaks havoc on any attempts at running. I may have to switch to that popular method of eating five-to-six small meals during the day rather than three normal-sized meals.
