inahandbasket: (Photographing!)
Since I'm recovering from the plague, I skipped band practice and spent the evening tweaking up some images from a photoshoot that will hopefully go on the ENSMB cd jacket somewhere.
This highlighted two things for me.
1: Holy crap is Adobe Lightroom beta3 awesome! I'm gonna need a copy once it goes gold!
2: Holy crap is my computer old and slow! I'm gonna need a new one really soon!
Computer geekery lies herein. )

I... may have just bought a pair of unlocked+jailbroken 2g iPhones with firmware 3.0 on them on ebay so we can use them on t-mobile.
I can't tell you how excited that makes my not-so-inner geek.

why: we like tmobile, don't want to sign a new 2-year contract with AT&T (iphone 3gs) or Sprint (palm pre), and the price on used 2g iphones just dropped drastically when the 3gs hit. We can probably sell them for close to what I just paid (if not more than, got a good deal) in a couple months if we think it's not working out, but likely we'll hang onto them until either the iphone breaks it's exclusivity with AT&T or a really compelling piece of Android hardware hits the market. So far Android phones have suh-uked. (Two syllables, they suck that bad. no offense to those of you who have them, but no headphone jack? fr srs?)

mmmm...
after some hassle with fedex, I finally got new speakers for my 'puter to replace my dead ones.
I'd been using headphones all the time since my speakers stopped turning on.
Did my research, and picked up some Logitech X-230's.
They're pretty sweet sounding, I'm happy with my purchase.

My only quibble with them, is that the volume of the headphone jack isn't controlled by the speaker volume knob.
Minor issue really, but I'd be remiss if I didn't bring up something negative. For the price they were, and the quality of the sound, I'm definitely willing to overlook that.

If anyone's in the market for 'puter speakers, hunt these suckers down.
Cheapest price I found was newegg.com.
