outsourcing personal


Sometimes some people can set me off, even though I am very patient and calm person. First they didn’t like the project. Then they didn’t like the terms. Then they didn’t like the payment amount. Then they didn’t like the payment time frame.

Had to give in to the last resort – mentioning that they are not the only developers around. Worked like a charm.

My girlfriend finally gave me my 3-year-aniversary gift, the Canon A95. It’s small, cute and 5 megapixels. It’s so convenient, I plan to take it everywhere now… If only it was a little faster, the shutter lag is humongous… But then again – it produces images with great quality, so if there’s a need to show a designer how an establishment looks like – there’s nothing better then this. And it’s not as heavy as my other camera (Fujifilm S2 Pro, weights around 2 lbs.), so it’s really a pocket wonder.


Another radio show

Ha! It isn’t as bad as I thought it would – having to have 20-minute window to talk about the Internet and stuff on the radio with people calling in and asking various questions. If I will behave myself (and I hope I will) then this will be regular thing, every Wednesday, around 5pm Chicago time. Oh, yeah, and it’s in Russian 🙂

Another thing is that since the guy who hosts the show is alone and it’s kind of hard for him to manage everything, I’ll probably be suggesting the topics for next shows. Which is very good indeed.
