Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
It's so nice...
... dealing with reasonable people. The "picture crime" I mentioned the other week has been resolved - the site, for a large UK electronic music festival had taken a photo from a band MySpace site without considering that they didn't have permission to do so.

In the end - they said sorry - it was a mistake; I said ok. We get on with our lives.

It did look really good though :-)

In other news, my laptop has finally arrived at work. It's very shiny, quite small and I have the administrator password. Finally I can get the train without feeling that the time is being wasted away.

The weekend gone was interesting. I found I've lost a 4GB memory card (somewhere - it might turn up), so bought another 18GB to make up for it. On Friday I was in Lodnod for work, then assisted on an art film; Saturday I did very little; Sunday I talked about LRP a lot.

Then I found out my dad has cancer.

I'm not sure how bad it is yet - will find out more tomorrow. He's handling it rather well. I hope that is on the advice of the doctor rather than because his head is in the sand. It might be an interesting couple of months.

Sorry to hear about your dad. Here's to the miracles of modern medicine and them making him better asap.

So, lose 4GB and replace with 18GB. Overkill??? ;o)

I took the train with a laptop this morning, and still felt that the time was being utterly wasted away. Especially the forty five minutes stood in the freezing cold waiting for a train which was manifestly stationary fourteen minutes from the train station and was actually not likely to turn up in fourteen minutes time. When I caught the next scheduled train the service sign was still cheerfully anticipating the imminent arrival of the dead-duck train. Then it was too crowded in the train to get out the laptop. Bah.

Rough news about your dad, though. Fingers crossed for non-sand-headness.

Best wishes and hopes on behalf of your dad.

Like like quite a weekend of extremes; good and bad. A positive attitude is probably one of the best medicines your dad could have, regardless of test results. I hope it turns out well for you and your family.

Edit: that should read 'sounds like'. I don't know where my mind was at, but it wasn't doing a good job of keeping my fingers in check!

Sorry to hear about your dad. :-/

Do the 4gb & 18gb cards work ok in your cameras? I bought a cheap 4gb one the other week and it wouldn't let me press the shutter button on my D1X. I tried it in my D2X and it seemed to work but I'm too worried to use it as I just think about the time I used a 2gb one in my D1X and then suddenly half of my 1gb cards wouldn't work in it.

The 18GB is made up of 2x8GB and 1x2GB. Apparently my camera will take up to 8GB.

That's bad. Hope it's not _too_ serious.
