Went to a party at Deniz yesterday, lots of interesting people. She seems to have a lot of friends on LiveJournal, and made me wonder how social dynamics and how people get to know each others. I'm all right with getting along with people, but "bootstrapping" is somewhat of a mystery to me, it just sort of happens.
Thanks for the party, Deniz!
Now, I'm walking around the apartment in my underwear, drinking some good Gyokuro japanese tea. It's all good.
Okay, with the 20D, Canon fixed all the problems I had with the EOS 10D, which I already thought had great performance caracteristics, but had a few problems, like the boot lag of 2 seconds, the lack of a joystick or directional buttons, it's large size and hefty weight, etc. They are also making the EFS mount available on more cameras and making new lenses for it, which I guess is a good thing, because it means affordable wide angle lenses for DSLR.
So that's the one I'll get, probably the kit with the 17-85mm/f4-5.6 IS USM. I hope it's not a micro-USM, but I'll probably have to deal with it anyway if it's not...
I finally got around to have my Palm repaired, but it turned out that for a broken LCD screen on a Tungsten E, you're better off getting a new one! I thought "hmm, I might upgrade to a T2", but no luck, they're all gone gone gone. So I bought another Tungsten E. They now bundle a hard case with it, which is a good thing, but the case isn't so well-done, I find. It makes accessing the power button, stylus, earphone/USB/power plugs rather annoying and difficult. They could have had a different shape, or have notches, something like that. Oh well, it was free.
Some people (hacker, hub) wanted a PalmOS 5 device for various hacking related to syncing, I might lend them my broken Palm, since it otherwise works okay (you can still sort of see some amount of the screen).
