My camera broke yesterday :( I was sorely tempted to use this as an excuse for a DSLR (I love playing with manual focus) but I feel bad about my excessive spending on shopping for moving out and have vowed to buy no more. Found a lovely £50 Canon which will do the trick, and I’m looking at some hack software that will also give it remote (sort of) shooting capabilities. (It’ll have to be connected to my laptop, but it’s still a start.) I’m hoping to start (within the next few years) some sort of stop-motion animation, and remote shooting would be highly useful.
Gah, so much drama on the internet. I’ll stop lurking on EGL now. :p
also, if someone’s ‘too fat’ or ‘too thin’, you don’t need to tell them, they probably already know. and if they don’t realise it, it’s not your place to be rude about it. just leave it out and let them get on with their lives.
Reading professional company web pages makes my head hurt. Way too much unnecessary technical jargon that reeks of the kind of corporate environment that I want to stay WELL away from. I’m not sure I want to go to this tech seminar now, all the firms there look like places I don’t want to apply to… meh… ¬__¬
Also, half of them are banks! I get that physicists are good at maths, but really, not all of them want to be investment bankers. ¬__¬
PLEASE make them so that the music DOESN’T start playing as soon as the page is opened.
In my experience, the volume of these blog players always seems to be louder than itunes or whatever volume setting I’ve been using for normal music listening. Ouch.
People may be in a quiet environment and sudden, loud music might give them a fright (I know it does to me).
People may have forgotten to mute their computer in a public place (it happens; not everyone wants to hear).
I don’t really want to have your music forced upon my ears.
It also makes me less likely to visit your blog again.
Hopefully the caps and formatting abuse will catch people’s attention and make them stop leaving their music players on autoplay.
By all means, leave them there, leave your playlist there so people can scroll through and pick out whatever music they want to listen to if they want to, or leave it alone if they don’t want to listen. Sometimes when browsing tumblr I’ll open a few blogs in new tabs, and then one (or sometimes several) will start playing music; then I’ll have to look through all the tabs I’ve opened to find out which one is the culprit. And more often than not, these music players are heavy, causing my computer to slow down and just prolong the playing of unwanted music.
