Completely crazy week at work. At least it was a short week.
I've finally finished filing and sorting the holiday photos. And by that I mean changing exif data and renaming files that had the wrong times for whatever reason. And fighting with the iphone which for some reason on one of the days decided to make the file names an hour different to the actual times taken. No idea what that was about. And filing the videos and correcting their times as well. I swear, holidays should only ever be in one timezone. Or I need better records of when I take photos so I can line everything up again later.
Thursday night I went with Kit to a party at Heather's (or one of Heather's friends). It was fun but I was like twice the age of some of the people there. So it was a little strange. I felt old! Unfortunately it was a pretty late night, and of course I woke up at 6am didn't I, so was tired all day yesterday.
We were watching M*A*S*H over dinner when the little brother called. What was the name of your ship he asks. Queen Mary 2 I says. Watch channel 7 (6) at 8:30 he says. So we put on Fantasia 2000 at 7:00 and then at 8:30 watched a special on the Queen Mary 2, filmed on a transatlantic crossing not long after she was built. It was pretty awesome. Thanks David!
Slept a lot better last night. Will tackle the todo list today.
We've had a pretty quiet week. We did go down to Kit's for a little while last night though which was nice.
This morning we got up relatively early .. scratch that.. Stu got up relatively early .. I'd been awake since 5:30am on account of having a sore spine from our dumb mattress. Anyway. Got ready and went to the farmers markets. I actually find the farmer's markets somewhat stressful - too many crowds and too many transactions to get stuff from multiple vendors. We had pies before we started, which were stressful in themselves due to having nowhere comfortable to sit to eat them.
Did a load of linen washing, fixed the hinge in the laundry door (the pin had almost worked its way out), and fought with our network for ages. I still can't get the NAS working on the Cisco switch (which turns out to be unmanaged, so can't see any sort of logs), and one of the network cameras (which I swear was working this morning) is also being a poo.
Went to Coles in the afternoon and remembered why I hate it so much - there's still no trolley bays in much of the car park, so you have to walk your trolley all the way back into the shopping centre to get your money back. Fills me with so much rage.
Got invited over to EffanC's, but we're still potentially contagious, so decided not to go.
Have been resizing holiday photos, but geotagging is super painful due to our super awful internet right now. Our SNR Margin is 15. Our loop attenuation is 66. According to Draytek our internet shouldn't work at all....
You know how Stu came down with gastro the morning after we got home? Well try as we might to avoid passing the germs on, I still managed to get it. First sign was before lunch yesterday, so decided to come home. Was actually fine for the afternoon, and worked from home, albeit very slowly with our terrible internet. Was unwell last night but at least I wasn't sick (I think I got a milder case). Decided to work from home again today (again, with super slow internet).
I've geotagged two days worth of photos, and selected highlights from day 1.
Tonight I finished looking at and geotagging the last three (four) days of the trip. All twenty thousand photos (including mum's).
That took longer than the trip did..!
Friday night we watched Argo. I liked it, aside from constantly thinking "did this *actually* happen?". Well the plane chase apparently didn't. heh.
Had a pretty quiet weekend. Did a lot of housework and stuff. Geotagged a few days worth of photos. Did food shopping yesterday. Watched several episodes of TOS. This afternoon I pretty much just cooked all afternoon. First up a raspberry crumble from a packet of frozen raspberries that had been in the freezer probably since I inherited them off Potty at the end of last year. Then a breakfast lasagna. Then a real lasagna (prepared but not baked yet). Had a break to have a walk at the very muddy Palmerville. Then finished up with a small roast for dinner.
The sweetie made good progress on his essay until he got a migraine tonight :(
Now we're both going to have an early night.
Last night we went over to Ben's new place for dinner. He made a lasagna which was delicious. Then just chatted and half watched the food channel. His new flatmate Tim seems like quite a nice guy.
Bit better day today. Even though I never rebooted, the scanner decided it would work this morning so scanned thirty six photos.
Tonight my todo list took me til just now (9:40pm) to get through. It include such things as cooking dinner, cleaning up the kitchen and running the dishwasher, taking out the recycling, doing a load of washing and hanging it out, and downloading my photos and backing up my computer. That one took a while because I was closely watching it to make sure windows 10 didn't do anything funky with robocopy. Aside from some new status codes (anything that's not modified is "modified" - wtf?? and some files said "older", but what the heck does that mean? It still has extra files, actually modified files, new files etc. Weird weird weird). But I checked source and destination file and byte counts and it all looked ok.
I also managed to geotag day 33 of my trip, and after adding the exiftool to the exclusions list from Windows Defender, it seems to run a *lot* faster!
Now it's 9:45pm and I still need to wash my hair.. :/
Had a thoroughly awful day today :(
Mostly because of crappy proxies. I take it personally when they don't work. Which is a problem when they're just plain buggy and I don't understand how they work anyway and everyone expects me to be the expert when I'm damned well not.
Also, if you want me to freak out completely, just put me on the spot about aforementioned proxies in front of a room full of people from other organisations who want to know why our proxies are so bad. Yeup.
And I also spent hours fixing another team's problem because I thought originally it was my problem. But it wasn't. *sigh*
Spent tonight geotagging photos. Did all the random camera photos except for Disneyland, where I took over five hundred photos but didn't take the GPS with me.
