What's on your mind?

arrrg, that sux dude. :(

 

I want to strangle whoever was responsible for recording these lectures. It's clear the cameraman was some moron from another faculty who probably couldn't add two single digit numbers together. When you're recording a lecture which consists of a lecturer projecting his screen for all to see, logic would dictate that you would fix the camera to that spot. Nope, that's way too obvious for this guy. For some reason it was absolutely critical that he slowly pan the camera to the lectern so we can see the professor talking about the stuff on screen we can no longer see, then pan back after the explanation is finished so you have NFI was just happened. What's worse, the lecturer uses pen input to annotate the notes, so you need to see where he's tapping to understand the area of the circuit he's referring to.

 

Thanks dude, this course wasn't already difficult enough, now you make it that little bit more frustrating by introducing split attention effects.

 

Actually the way to do it is to film the lecturer then edit the slides in later from his powerpoint or whatever. (Unless he was using hand drawn transparencies on the overhead, but who does does that anymore?)

 

Filming the lecturer is stupid. He's behind a lectern speaking, not doing hand puppets. Also, he was using pen input to annotate the notes on the projector. You need to see the steps he takes to get to a solution, not the final result.

 

Fair enough then.

@Krispy & Nuke:

 

*sits back while the super awesome huge dust filter takes care of pretty much all dust waiting for the next 6 month filter replacement.*

I seem to remember you buying Aircon filters or some such for case filters, I'm assuming that all worked out well?

Thank you Origin Energy for seeing a problem in our bill back in June, then without notifying us sending us an amended bill on Christmas Eve the equivalent of an entire year's electricity.

 

ho fucking ho, it's off to the ombudsman I go.

 

(and yes, you will lose the joy of supplying us electricity & gas in the new year...)

Might wait for Pension day and go and see it. Otherwise i would wait but i saw all the 'The Lord of Rings" in the cinema. Only thing i hate about cinema's the sound is either too low or too high and my hearing gets messed up. Another thing i hate is when someone sits next to you and just plays with their mobile phone.

Don't know why, but Christmas always turns out to be a depressing time of year for me, can't wait to get back to work on wednesday and forget about it.

I'll put money down on the fact you will be changing your attitude once your offspring becomes a little more interactive. Nothing quite like watching young-uns absolutely lose their shit over chrissy presents and whatnot.
