This guy spells his name wrong. :(

Dammit. Apparently this guy is actually spelling his name with two "O"s.

Orange Photography takes "tara"ble pictures

orange photography

We had these guys (specifically Tara Arrowood) take our wedding photos. And, man, are they bad. I can't believe we paid $800 (apparently, this is much less than their standard price) for them.

Approximately 80% of the pictures are "artistically shot", with people stretching from one corner to the opposite corner. Since we were on a boat, the horizon is perpendicular to them. This creates a big X in the picture, which I find to be very distracting, visually. It would have been fine if there were one or two like that (as is the case in the online sample of her work), but literally 4 out of 5 of them are this way.

For Pete's sake, she could have just taken the picture from further away, and the later cropped it to satisfy her artistic desires. Leaving us with the original, representational-of-what-actually-happened pictures.

Maybe I was confused about what to expect from a wedding photographer. I had thought we would get pictures of our wedding and the people in it, but taken with better equipment/lighting. Instead we got someone's artistic creation.

I am reminded of the "bad designer" from Trading Spaces (the dark haired NY one) who does crazy "artistic" things like try to paint a fabric couch with housepaint, and then "accidently" leaves it out in the rain because it was a stupid idea in the first place.

Zsh wiki

Wiki: HomePage

Zsh has a very good [User manual]. It is large, and will probably teach you things you didn't know about the shell you are currently using as well. This wiki doesn't aim to take its place, but to provide an accessible outline of all the features of Zsh (with some nifty specifics!), and foster a Zsh community.

Gentoo is Rice

Welcome to Gentoo is Rice, the Volume goes to 11 here.

Welcome, this page is dedicated to the Linux Community's greatest ambassadors, Gentoo users. Like the annoying teenager next door with a 90hp import sporting a 6 foot tall bolt-on wing, Gentoo users are proof that society is best served by roving gangs of armed vigilantes, dishing out swift, cold justice with baseball bats to those fucking ricer bastards.

My coworker Austin found this on Memepool. Hilarious.

I never was too keen on that Sveasoft thinger


OpenWrt is a linux distribution for the Linksys WRT54G. Instead of trying to cram every possible feature into one firmware, OpenWrt provides only a minimal firmware with support for add-on packages. For users this means the ability to custom tune features, removing unwanted packages to make room for other packages and for developers this means being able to focus on packages without having to test and release an entire firmware.
