New camera

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

You can't take a picture of your new camera, with your new camera.

Instead, you can document the first picture your new camera ever took:

First picture ever with new camera

It's the Canon S5 IS (S1, S2, S3, S5 - where'd S4 go?), and yes, 48x zoom is plenty to see the hairs on Pete's nose.

Fieldays special at the AV store

From the IRC quote database @ SBM-300 shiatsu massage cushion

<calin> we had a guy at school that wore black lipstick.. and was all gothy.. and then one day we caught him buying an assvibrator
<ecoli> ew.
<ecoli> wait, you "caught" him?
<ecoli> like, you were behind him in line at the assvibrator store?
<aero> he doesnt answer
*** Quits: calin (No route to host)

I was out at Harvey Norman purchasing a ducting kit for my dryer, when I saw an assvibrator (with attached shiatsu massager) that I just couldn't walk past. It was conveniently sitting in front of the vaccuum cleaner bags, when you always have to ring the person at home and find out what model of vaccuum cleaner you actually have.

It comes with a big list of donts, including pointing out it has a "15 min auto shutoff" because it's dangerous to use for longer. To me or the machine, I don't know (they say it gets hot if you run it for too long, and you should let it cool. I wonder what the duty cycle is? Is 15 mins in every hour OK?
