Day in review [Oct. 10th, 2002|08:48 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Last night was miserable ... took me about four hours to fall asleep. And then I had to wake up early for a dentist appointment, leaving me groggy all day.

But on to the positives!

-- my teeth are "wonderful". but I'm supposed to floss. but they've been saying that for 22 years now.

-- met Kevin of discogs.com ... cool guy. we had lunch and talked all about website/business/technology/user stuff. I passed down what wisdom I had to share. He gave me root on his server too, and I did a few things to speed it up and gave him a dozen security & performance tips.

-- bought a Canon PowerShot S200 Digital ELPH [pic]. Damn it rules. It fits in my pocket! And it's like, sturdy and responsive and not stupid. I hated my Nikon CoolPix.

-- bought a compact flash reader that works with Linux. muy conveniento. first one I bought (SanDisk SDDR-71) didn't work, so I replaced it with a PNY one that was $20 cheaper. score.

-- Cute Best Buy girl was there both times I went in. I've been pushing myself to ask her out the last, oh, 20 times I've been in there. I was totally up to it the second time I went in, but she was on the phone the whole time. While my balls seemed to have grown large enough to ask her out, they apparently weren't large enough to wait around until she got off the phone, then ask. So I left. Goddamnit.

I discard tons of entries before posting them, whenever it's apparent that I can't write worth shit. This one would normally be a candidate for disposal, but I'm tired and don't care. I'm going to go watch TV and take pictures of my feet at different settings and stuff.

I resisted napping all day, so maybe I'll be able to sleep tonight.

Mary and I have the same camera, had it most of the summer. I love it to death, the only negative thing I have to say about it, is when it is dark and it can't focus on stuff, it flashes red and orange lights saying, "Hey dumbass, there is nothing to take a picture of, so I am not gonna take it," so you have to hold the button down for an extra couple of seconds to override and by that time, the perfect pic is gone...

I hate being overridden by my own camera!

Dad bought the same camera in New Orleans... it kicks ass. Good call. I love the metal case.

That's the one I told Mary to buy, think she's liked it. Canon digital cameras kick ass. Since I've gotten mine I've sold 3 other people on them. Glad to see your eyes have been opened :-)

Very Intresting

I use the Cannon A200 for work and shoot about 400 pics a week for this is the site I do it for a living .. www.buysell.com for Vancouver Island. I love that cam true but I always wanted the Nikon CoolPix for a personal cam after your comment might have to rethink my choice on the Nikon.. thanks for the heads up.

Awwww, Brad! Ask her out! You can do it!

If all else fails, swagger up to her and say, "So... got a Live Journal?"

Hi. I'm Nikki. :) I hear you like meeting new people. Well since you seem genuinely interesting and amusing, I'm gonna add you to my friend list. Thought I'd let you know, cause it seems pointless to me to add someone to my friend list without introducing myself. Perhaps you'll add me back sometime and see what's behind my friends only journal.

Which Coolpix did you have?

One of my buddies is really into Nikon and he suggested that I look at the Coolpix 5000. It looked pretty cool, but I'm really used to the Olympus...(read: i know the darn thing inside and out). Frankly the Elph never made it into my preview list. Don't remember why tho.

Aww...you want to ask a Best Buy girl out.

Speaking as a cute Best Buy girl...just go for it. It's always nice when customers (especially frequent custoemrs that you know want to talk more) come in and ask you out.

Good choice on the camera! I think that was one I recommended back in February or something ;-)
