I installed the "sliine" keyboard to my phone, largely because it seemed amusing. Its big claim to fame is that you can post entire phrases with a single touch. The following paragraph wad composed entifly with this feagure:

Hello hey hi heya hiya howdy man ho girl w are you? What's up? My man h dude ow are you doin dude g? Dude. Duuude. Duuude duuuuude is now a good time to talk? Nickname what's new? Ciao. Ciaoooo.

I got lots of technical things wrong, but some of them still turned out OK. Here are pictures of last night's fireworks at Crystal Palace.

Some photos from my trip to NYC [Oct. 16th, 2010|01:24 pm]
Simon MacMullen

I was experimenting with daylight long exposures while there, both ~30 second ones with a neutral density filter, like this and this, and ~1 second ones without, like this. I don't know if they're successful or not but I quite like them. Probably could have done better with more time and a tripod, but I think webcowgirl would have rebelled, quite justifiably...

You might notice that the photo gallery is new, in time I'll move the old photos across as well. Unfortunately the old one was very tied to F-Spot, which I'm not using any more. But I think the new one is nicer. You can leave comments! And you can still search by tags, although all the pictures that are uploaded ATM just have "nyc" as a tag.

I took a handful of photos one evening at BiCon this year. (Usual disclaimer: I believe I have everyone's consent but if you're less than 100% satisfied let me know by any means and I'll take any picture down.)

Everything was a bit meh at the time. Next year, hold me back.

Flying squirrel! [Apr. 26th, 2010|09:21 pm]
Simon MacMullen
trishpiglet, dr_jen and I went for a walk in the Rookery at Streatham Common yesterday. In among the rather ordinary pictures I took there are three of a slightly startled squirrel taking flight. I'm amazed they get all four paws off the branch at once...

Now that's what I call God... pictures [Mar. 23rd, 2010|08:00 pm]
Simon MacMullen

I hope you like them[1]. As usual I probably completely missed lots of people, for which I apologise.

I had a fab time, but somehow got ill the next day. Stupid stomach! Seem to be recovering now though, and looking forward to Oxford Bifest...

[1] Usual policy applies: let me know if you don't and I'll take it down asap.

Feeble attempt at LJcycle [Jan. 27th, 2010|08:42 pm]
Simon MacMullen
Freecycle having failed me, I don't suppose anyone wants an Ikea Oppli TV bench? 50x150x40cm, both shelves missing. Don't all rush at once.

While we were at work today someone delivered a religious magazine. I took pictures of a couple of the pages in it, about how giving money to the church can solve your financial problems and going into some detail about the problems with feminism. My intent was mostly just to point and laugh. But then I checked Wikipedia and now I'm just angry, in a rehearsing-what-to-say-to-them-if-they-come-round-again kind of way.

(I had a very nice weekend though!)
