Critiques

Bowser by photographygrl

There isn't a whole lot I can critique on this piece, as technically, it's stunning. Black and white works really well and you can see ...

Moda Layout by EnzuDes1gn

This critique stems from the fact that my eyesight isn't perfect so this will be why I will see things differently from others. Overall...

Sentinal wip - Update April 14 by EnzuDes1gn

This looks really good, and has that "enzudesign" feel which has become your identity. The battery charging screen looks really good (a...

Calle del Sol by BriceChallamel

This is a simply fantastic piece! I get the feeling that, even though the street is nearly empty, it is alive and kicking with hundreds...

I don't quite understand some of the comments people leave on posts around the internet. I'm not talking about the trolls, the political people ("thanks Obama!"), the people whose first language isn't English or anything else like that, it's people who leave confusing, one or two word comments that you can't comprehend why they even wrote that.

Example: "The Simpsons" posted a photo in celebration of national sibling day (haha, suck it, only children!). Someone left a comment, "The Simpsons". That's it. "The Simpsons", on a post by The Simpsons, about The Simpsons. Wut? Turns out, this guy goes around posting "The Simpsons" on all posts by The Simpsons. Even moar wut?

Another example: The Onion posted an article about California's Seaworld doing its bit for the drought by draining the tanks half way. Asides from the usual people who thought it was real, the people trying to tell the others it's not real, and the wisearses like myself, there was this gem of a comment:

"Animal"

Good catch there, buddy.

Now, I'm sure they have their reasons. Perhaps they're practicing their english by translating the phrase from their native language, or typing on a foreign keyboard and want to show that they can do it, despite their keyboard inherently lacking the right letters, but I like to think it's a guy sitting at his keyboard, smug grin on his face, arm confidently around a super uncomfortable girl who's clearly not interested in him, saying "Yeah baby, I know TENS of English words. Watch me type another.

"Lemon"
At least, our internet does.

Earlier this week I finally received my Canary home security system. It's a small cylinder that sits on your shelf and has a HD camera, night vision and temp / humidity / air quality sensors. It has a live view for watching in real time and learns about your house so it knows when you come home, knows to ignore pets running around and such.

The fatal flaw? Live view requires a minimum upload speed of 1mb/s to run. I get 0.55mb/s on wireless, slightly more on Ethernet. I cannot watch Live View. If someone breaks in, I can only watch the highlights reel after he's nicked off with everything, instead of hitting the "Sound the alarm" button and blasting him with 120db of sound to scare him off.

I'm sick of Australia being low on the list when it comes to internet. I'm sick of people viewing the internet like some kind of Tamagotchi fad, not worthy of putting money into because it's going to die out in the next year or two anyway. I'm sick of the bullshit this "National Broadband Network" has become and I'm just sick of Australia having a backwards view of internet related things in general.

In 2010 we were behind Mongolia in average upload speeds. Mongolia. A country with slightly more people in it than Melbourne. And their internet speeds were better.

Pull your finger out, Australia. I want to use my home security system.

Things are good! You're rarely on FB, which i understand, but it'd make it easier to see how things are :P

OMG, we're like ADULTS now.

I still read lots of stuff on Facebook, but don't actually post. Part of my plan to get away from the site due to privacy issues I have with them.

I know! I was just sitting at my desk the other day, thinking that I've been at my current job for 6 and a half years, and that I've been with Holly for even longer than that. It's also strange to think that in 3 years, I'll be 30. But I counteract that feeling by watching Adventure Time..
