until 3pm i think. i hope.
today i have my laptop and i think i'm going to get a spotify premium upgrade.
maybe I should look into that at some point...
its pretty much saved my sanity.
then again, i suppose it's more than one album you'd get for that.
you've got to remember i spend eight hours a day at work listening to music. everything on my ipod is feeling a bit exhausted these days ;)
we're just allowed to listen to music providing it doesn't disturb anyone else.
from A - Z. my flatmate and i once had a competition to see who could get the furthest. i think we both got to about B.
but albums a-z rather than artists to give a bit of variety.
Don't try to cheapen that!
Happened to me four times in my life between xmas and new year that there's been a problem with the water in my various flats. Okay so far this year though...
i just had a cold shower. but couldn't take it, so now my hair is still covered in shampoo. ON NEW YEAR'S EVE!!
i was going to get an iphone but the mobile versions don't have last fm support so meh to that.
my laptop speakers: horrible
and there are loads of widgets that compare the recommendations to whats available on spotify and give you links. <3333 technology, i don't even have to try anymore.
i find spotify radio to be realllllllllllllly bad and not a patch on last fm's. or at least it was the last time i used it.
but yeah, true facts. i showed it to my mother. i intially tried to explain it but gave up and decided a demonstration was in order. she was impressed :D
if you get a text or a call.
Or use another app for something. Don't be so blinkered by your own needs: the iPhone is primarily about range of functionality and if you didn't need tonnes of apps or great web browsing wouldn't you just have a normal phone, given they're cheaper, with 3x+ the battery life and smaller?
We're not discussing your niche views here: the iPhone is aimed at a market you are not part of. If it were aimed at you it wouldn't have an advertising campaign entitled, "There's an app for that," because its userbase would just be responding with, "I don't need it".
is that you countered my point about Spotify being the only app you can run with, "why would you want to do that?", which immediately takes it away from your personal comfort zone into the world of OTHER PEOPLE. Some might call it the 'real world', even.
As I made abundantly clear in two posts, it's not about what you want if you desire to know why someone else might find that a limitation.
So shut it, you sack of vag-ejected jism.
You asked a question and when presented with the answer acted like this wrong because it didn't reflect on you personally even though the entire point of the answer was that it didn't reflect on you personally. :D
and wanting to listen to something, as well as play doodlejump or something.
maybe later if theres more to do.
I'm off to Brighton tonight though. Should be a good laugh I'll be Dubstepping it up in World's End.
still no work to do. still no superiors. seeing as i work flexi, i get to decide when i finish. maybe i'll knock off a little earlier than i intended
Decided not to work from home so I might actually do some work. Not very successful so far...
has happened to this thread.
Exactly. If something is to hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet...
Hopefully finishing about 2... No idea what I'm doing tonight might just stay in and go to bed...
see y'all in 2010 :D
but I'm working from home and still in my pjs. I should get dressed and do some stuff really.
At Theo: the iphone is by no means perfect, you can listen to iTunes and look at maps at the same time, but you can't switch between apps at all and if you want to play a game without it's sound on, you can't listen to iTunes at the same time. Also, when you receive a text, you get the option to ignore if you're doing something else, but otherwise you have to close the app to get to it. Definitely room for improvements. But who cares, it's SO pretty. And it's better than carrying an A to Z.
which just means answering annoying emails from annoying people in general.
and having the cats annoy me every 5 mins. 'i want outside! no now i want inside! i want outside! no now i want inside! miaow miaow miaow miaow oh do you have cornflakes? with milk? i love you now! hmm now i've drank the dregs of your milk in the bowl, i want outside! no now i want inside! i want outside!'
Get up from seat? Come back to find Clooney on it.
Fudge gets on my lap? Watch as she attempts to obsessively lick any part of my hands and arms that are exposed.
stop lying. you're not doing any work at all, are you? you're sat there in your smug "i'm at home during the day on new year's eve" way, being all non working and smug
i'm gonna leave early today. fuck hourly wage. fuck it
Not much more to do as everyone else is on proper holidays.
fucking VAT change bullshit. without that i'd have nothing to do.
which is about half an hour more. Then I am off to the pub to drink lots of lovely Belgian beer. Happy New Year everybody.
My boss bought a new sofa which we tried to get into his house this morning but it's too big. He's now gone to Ikea to take back the sofa and find one that fits. I've done all that I need to do so I'm waiting for him to get back and sort the rest out. I could be here 'til late :(
Which shouldn't be that far away now.
I'm the only one left in my 'actual' team but will have to stay back until the other team have finished arsing about. If they were less slack they'd have been done by now and I'd be off buying stuff for tonight. Cunts.
So did our customers, it seems!
bye guys, see you in 2010, except those of you i'll bump into this evening at ss nye
