On a brighter note than the last entry, I’m loving our camera and I think I’m coming along quite well with the photography skills. The 100mm lens is absolutely amazing. I’ve put some of my recent favourites under the cut.
Memories - 12th August
Beanie is VERY insistent that we get out of bed and pay attention to him.

A sleepy afternoon.

Or make them rather ominous.

I keep forgetting about Prisma. It’s certainly a good way to spruce up low-quality nighttime photos!

Me? I'm not doing anything. No sir.

Today can go fuck itself in the ear
Blargh. I had an extremely dumb day today at work. You know those days where nothing sinks in and you just don’t get anything? That was today.
Work has paid for a couple of us to take the official Sun Java training courses (at not-insignificant expense!) and I’ve been working my way through it (this is the very basic don’t-know-any-Java-or-any-object-oriented-programming-at-all one that I’m doing). At the end of each section there’s exercises where you write code to do various things. As I get further into it, they give you less and less hand-holding with the coding, which is understandable. But I was just not understanding it at all. I had to get a co-worker’s help about four times and it still didn’t actually click.
Later on, there was a support case that I took, the customer had provided a backup of his data so we could try to reproduce the problem. I was still struggling to get the backup imported when a co-worker replied to the customer having looked through it all and worked out what the problem was, and what the solution was.
Then at the end of the day I took another support case, and I’d gotten so bogged down from the two things I mentioned above that I was totally doubting myself, and had to double check my answer to the customer with a co-worker because I wasn’t sure.
Plus poor my kungfupolarbear might possibly be losing her job, or possibly not, we don’t know, because the CEO at the company she’s working at is a dick with no actual understanding of what she does.
Ugh. The title of this post says it all.

Hurrah for drunken updating from a LiveJournal meet!
Also, __stripped says I’m a nerd. 🙁

I went down to the Mall this evening to get a haircut. (Short hair+goatee plus plus!). I’ve also pre-ordered Halo 2 (and the guy at EB said they’ve got about 400 preorders for it so far), and I’m buying a Sony-Ericsson T610 mobile phone! I’ve wanted to get a Bluetooth/iSync-compatible phone for a while now (ever since I got my PowerBook, really), and I’ve worked out this would be the cheapest method.
I’m on a $33/month plan at the moment with a Nokia 6100. I talked to the guys in the Optus shop, and they said the only options were to cancel my current plan (which would cost ~$450) and upgrade to the $45/month plan, which offers the T630. I’m not even using the $33/month, so that’d be silly.
The other option is to buy the T610 outright for ~$480, transfer my SIM card over from my 6100 to the T610 and continue on with the $33/month plan until it runs out towards the end of next year. After that, I’ll just be paying for what I use.
