WEEKEND? WHAT WEEKEND?

This weekend just blew by like crazy. Sucks when you work on a Saturday coz the weekend seems exponentially shorter.

This coming week tho is bound to be plenty interesting. School's out, for one. The company Xmas party is this week too, and that's when you get to see bossman drunk - funny stuff. Lots of work to be done too, and one of the most productive guys in the company had a family emergency and will be gone all week. [Hence my working Saturday] Then, our crappy Unix-based accounts server crashed last week, which is nothing short of disastrous for a product based company - or for any other company, for that matter. But for we who, for the most part, sell tangible stuff, it means that sh*t gets stacked floor to ceiling waiting to be invoiced and shipped out. The production area is a madhouse, stuff lying all over.

So, on my way to work yesterday I tested out this camera I had to get because Mr. Sony Ericsson wasn't quite cutting it, as much a Paparazzi as I can be. Dude, I take photos of everything. It's one short step to a digital SLR, functionality-wise anyway. Only thing is that the viewfinder is electronic, unlike an SLR's. Maybe it will sate my lust for a real SLR for a spell. [Not that I can afford one anyway] The picture quality is great, and the movie-clips it takes aren't half bad, though nowhere near as good as, say, a camcorder's.

Like, check out this clip below that I took yesterday during my self-imposed break from work. I keep moving it around so much so I could test its auto-focus and white balance. The only problem is that its mike is more than overwhelmed by loud sounds, especially the bass from the trunk. Otherwise in a moderate sound level environment it's great.




Alright, enough geekery already.

You sure know how to entertain yourself! Atleast you done with school and am sure the Overtime money aint bad, right?

>d® said...

Oh yeah, OT money is sweet! It's the only motivation to work weekends, trust me.

Nothing like a new gizmo to keep oneself entertained, eh?

ROTFL dude, you winked? Tihihiii!! was that beyonce? i shall not say that was a nice track not at all, and how much bass is in that boot? Was out looking for some nice new shoes for my ride and i have found them...now to go find a bank to rob...

>d® said...

Yes, that was Beyonce, fortunately or unfortunately. I like Swizz Beatz's.... er, beats, so I guess that means I like the song too.

Pretty OK bass, can't complain. Need specifics? Check out my other [rarely updated] blog - Speed Resource.

New shoes, huh? For performance or aesthetics, or both?

Good luck with the bank! lol!

Aegeus said...

both actually, improve handling mostly, aesthetics..not too much...painted a colour very close to the car's and they are minimalistic too so bling factor is low.... will look for a picture to post of the shoes in question...15 inchers, aluminium alloys, light and strong, enabling me to shod some low profile tires...grippier...wider...you get the idea...

>d® said...

That's what I'm talking about - performance always comes first. By all means, post a pic up when u can.

Any ideas on what tire you'd like, cash-flow notwithstanding?
