    Man, when it rains it pours!

    Lost job. Step dad dies. And now my computer died too!

    I guess the tiny upswing is that I get the new computer that I've been saving for. Ohhh boy, it's gonna be nice.

    This is pretty rad:

    http://www.lytro.com/picture_gallery

    I guess this company made a camera that somehow captures all levels of focus simultaneously, and lets you determine the focus you want after the fact. Clicking on different areas of the pictures here refocuses them to that spot.

    Given I'm going to guess that this is eventually going to cost way more than it's worth for the initial tech, but it's still neat. It'd be interesting to see if this eventually works its way into 3d video stuff, using sensors on your eyes so the image automagically refocuses on what your eyes are trying to focus on.

    This just makes me wonder what the hell cameras will be like in 10-30 years. Will the term SLR mean anything at all anymore?

    New computers are nice. Are you going to build yours? It can be sort of therapeutic.

    I find myself either trying for another job, or since that seems to be a slow process, trying for a second job. 2nd job is proving difficult as well. I applied for a job at AMC theaters. No call backs.

    Their application doesn't simply ask you if you have ever committed a felony, they ask you for intimate details. If that's not enough though, they have a second box for a second felony.

    "What did you do? Rape a person? ...hmm, that's pretty bad. Anything else? You killed a person too! Well.... I guess we'll still consider you. You're still better than some of our other candidates."

    And yet with 11 years experience as a manager, I get Zero calls.

    Maybe they want a manager who's raped somebody.

    I'll pass the job along to my bosses then. After what they did with my position and salary, they definitely qualify as rape managers.

    Intimate crime details? Theater chain?

    You fool, they are just looking for the person who can make up the coolest sounding crime spree so their clerks know who they can put out front to sell more tickets for Crank 3.

    (Slow response.....No computer)

    Thanks for all of the well wishes everyone!

    Iruka: After three weeks of interviewing with that place, they tell me 'we've decided to go with another candidate'. But I know someone who works there (why I applied in the first place) and she said that they actually hired no one... Is it that hard to say 'you're not the candidate we're looking for'? You really have to lie? Crazy! haha

    Tam: While it is not the most economical, I'm getting a 27" iMac. Yes, Macs are expensive, but it's what I really want, and I would be less happy if I got something else just because of the price tag. I'm ordering it today!
