Yesterday night my host, Segment Publishing, had some downtime on one of their servers as a disc in a RAID setup failed. This sounds a little strange, as a failed disk in a well-configured RAID setup shouldn’t have any impact on any services running on the server. You should be able to hot-swap the damaged disk and replace it with a new one without server hickups.
Anyway, I didn’t even notice the downtime since it was in the middle of the night, and they gave me a free month of hosting to make it up for the sites who got affected. Life goes on.
Today I worked as usual, and then met with Hallvard, Tor Olav, Ola and Dag Rune and drank some beers. I only had one, since I have to get up early for work tomorrow. But it tasted good. On Saturday, I’m hopefully drinking more beer at Roar (note to self: remember to update cast information) and Øyvind’s house-warming party. Last Friday I drank beer at Gunnar’s place. Do you see an unfortunate forming pattern here?
Tor Olav had bought himself a brand new Canon fixed optics 50mm lens. We took a few test shots with my 300D, and the results were quite impressive. It wasn’t too expensive either, so it might be something I’ll try to get my hands on when I get some experience in handling the Rebel.
The photographers at Cali es Cali are capable of handling both their camera and their models, and we enjoy the great looking result. I want to take pictures like this, too.
