This all fit into the black roller duffel in the pic…so much for packing light.
Getting ready for my trip.

Taken with my backup camera for this trip, a Canon G10. Last year half way through my trip my new Canon 40D died on me. I had to cut my trip short due to not having a decent backup camera. This years goal, 200 churches in 10 days plus meet D.P. Mortlock and have him sign my books and spend a day churchcrawling with Simon Knott in Norfolk. And watch Man U win. And have a pint or two, or three.

If you don’t want to spring for the special Panasonic drive, this machine can’t boot from USB. (Evil, evil BIOS.) However, the IDE controller can address master/slave devices! A little adapter work, and there’s a CDROM hanging off the internal bus!

took a group shot of everything that went all the way around the world with me (except the S300, obviously).

this is only the stuff that took off from LAX for new zealand and arrived back at LAX from london. so, no guidebooks – we picked those up as we needed them and mailed them home as we were done. various other things were cut and sent home in packages, including a number of casualties in the ill-fated Second Australia Package – most famously the blank white cards deck, but also my statue of liberty shirt and a few other items.

week 9 – getting distracted
Image by mjtmail (tiggy)
where to start with this week? its been one distraction after another. it seems like everything i’ve had to get done, didn’t.
the work golf day is coming round in the next month or so, so the rev and i will need to start our practice plan to avoid me making a fool of myself on the first tee.
one of my dealextreme orders came, amongst other things a laser pointer that can pop balloons & one of those fire starting sparky firing things we all had as kids in scouts. campfire here we come.
still waiting for replacement cells for nicky’s laptop battery. i’m hoping for the early part of next week.

A huge portion of my next three days will be spent within aluminum tubes slicing through the air at hundreds of miles per hour. It will seem to me as if I am sitting still in extremely cramped quarters with a dozen channels of crappy satellite television to keep me occupied once my laptop battery craps out.
Maybe I’ll read.

I’ve never liked my Vaio. It’s slow, has little space, is crazy heavy, and has pathetic battery life. The only thing I like about it is the size of the screen for playing games/photo editing, but not for movies[it can't handle black worth shit]
The thinkpad was a gift from my advisor. I love it. It’s fast, light, has more space than my Vaio, and has a 3.5 hour battery life. My only gripe is the crappy sound from speakers put on the bottom of the laptop.
It’s me-sized! =]
I’m busy being an engineer so photos have sort of taken a backseat. Sorry. I’m sick of sluts anyways. They’re boring. My current classes keep me from that side of campus so I’m pretty happy.

Charging mobiles and camera and sync’ing podcasts to spend ~72h in Granada.

The ‘Getting Started’ pamphlet is pretty thorough. On the back are amusing infograms that actually convey important info. Like, don’t throw the battery in a fire.
