Townhall Aftermath.

Posted in Everyday life with tags , on 08.22.2010 by Redporno.Quinn

A totally late post. But anyway…

Okay, so for the last couple of weeks of July, I got preoccupied with doing the needed program for our townhall, like what I posted before, I was in charged of doing the PowerPoint presentation, video, music and picture editing, and during the whole show, I was the one navigating everything. A lot of stuff came up before and during the show but somehow, we were able to pull it all thru.

So anyway, during the pre-presentation, I had to fix the whole PowerPoint on the spot since I can’t do it at home because all of the needed infos for it are at work *faaaaaaaaaaail* I had, like around two hours and a half to do it, a total rush. Seriously, I was not satisfied with my work.

my wtf-ohnoes face D8

Also, another problem that occurred before the show was that, the videos that I converted to .AVI wasn’t working . I was in a shock, since it took me a whole week ( and I had to be absent for a day and sleepless for the rest of week ) just to finish doing those. Good thing though, one of my coworker had her ties with the local I.T. people, and this guy was able to help me out with my problem with the videos. He installed ( illegally ;; ) a different movie player in the computer that I was using so that we could use the videos. Had to delete that application right after the show though.

Obviously, I’m the gay perzan in the skull dress and glasses, we were camwhoring while the I.T. did his magic :3

So with that problem solved, our townhall started.

The nest problem that we encountered was, the projector’s remote was not working. Ugh. It was actually part of the plan to use the remote to turn off the projector while I changed applications – because despite the fact that I’m using the ALT+TAB shortcut, its still not a good thing to see how I do it in front of the audience. I got really frustrated with that one, plus, I was having a hard time to not let the audience see the judge’s scores, since I had to literally type the scores on the spot as well. Those last two problems wasn’t solved and I was down right sad with it.

Everyone said though, that I did a great job with everything, the effort that I gave was really appreciated.

I don’t know. I wasn’t personally satisfied and somehow, I promised myself that next time, it would all be better. The glitches this time was really bad, next time, If there would be glitches, it would be minor that no one would notice. Since I’m not totally perfect and I’m still learning everything.

There is still a next time, I know. >3

Audacity and the presentation ( and a little bit more )

Posted in Everyday life with tags on 07.18.2010 by Redporno.Quinn

We use to have this monthly townhall – an hour (or so…) of programs, presenting the process’ progress over the weeks and to know who of all the agents were really doing their job.

But when this year started, the management decided to make the townhall a quarterly event instead of the usually monthly thing. Reason? to save up enough money for other stuff and to make the townhall a bit more exciting than usual, since its now a quarterly thing ( this, of course, is in my own opinion only ;; ).

So now, our team is in charge of the upcoming townhall for this quarter, with our team mate, Rhy in charge of the whole thing. He, in the mean time, gave me the honors of doing all the technical stuff ( back to the shadows as usual 8D ). Well. he also gave me the choice of doing any random performances to entertain the crowd, but sadly, I’m not the entertainer type so its better off that I’m the technical guy :D

Anyway, right now, I’m working on the sounds, had to cut out some parts and stuff. My brother told me to use to program called Audacity, but I fail at it obviously since it’s my first time using said application ;;

Lol, Plurk at the background. But, yeah, that’s how my screen almost looks like right now, had some notes, listening to some party music to figure out what more to use for the program and crap.

Hope I’d be able to finish all of this with a week and a half or so ):

Oh, and yeah, I’m kinda enjoying the playlist that my colleague lended me, LOL, party, house and trance all in one <3

Being back in the process + Plus something extra *wink wink*

So, apparently, I’ve been having a huge will-issue attitude towards my work – it’s been totally like hell nowadays because of the changes, plus the people involved in it. No motivation whatsoever and no competition, makes me wonder how I’ve been able to pull it all off for the last (almost) couple of years in this certain process. Anyway, I’m pretty much back, the will-issue thingy’s almost gone (i hope) and I guess, even if there’s no competition, I’ll try to climb back up to the top again. No, no, this isn’t my way of bragging – I don’t brag, I just show ’em all what I’ve got, all I’ve got if I could. and then BOOM!

A little while earlier, I switched stations (yet again) just to test something, I even had the chance to use two PCs instead of one, since the station I used was lacking an important program that we need for sending letters. It was really kinda fun, I was like multi-tasking, never got sleepy or anything. I felt like the old days, in my old self. I told my team mate, how I wish that we had the old teams back, then I’d be really happy.

Guess why I’m posting this one here:

BAI BAI!

Christmas Eve at the Office

Posted in Everyday life with tags on 12.24.2009 by Redporno.Quinn

Okay so I’ll be spending my Christmas eve at the office.

It would have been much better if we could somehow bring some gadgets at the floor but that seems pretty impossible. Now, a lot of people are planning to go on SL during tonight’s shift just to be with their family when the clock strikes 12.

In my case, I’ve told my family that I’ll be dropping by during Christmas day instead.

*sigh*

Something that I should have done a long time ago:

*sigh* it’s necessity, more of a necessity than a KHR manga, yes, that kind of necessity.

And I had to wake up in the wee hours of the need just to be sure that I’d be able to get one since they only give out this thing for the first 100 people and I’m glad to say I was the 23rd.

Well worth it, I guess

Random I

I’m free on monday, yay!

I had to tell a little white lie just to be able to not go to work, but, seriously, work’s really stressing me out lately…or maybe it’s because I just get tired too easily.

Well, on with the gaming!


Lights.

Before I started my current job,  I use to have a..well…
..it’s sort of a job, but an unofficial one since.
My brother kind of shared to me his sideline into making this american website that sold different lighting stuff, and he asked me to edit all the needed photos for it while he does the ‘web-fixing’
I for one found this work easy, but it can also be a bit time-consuming.
I was given by my brother a maximum of 8-9 hours of work time using our PC, since he uses it when he comes home from work.
And yes, this job was done at home only, with the help of an internet connection (hence, the reason why we decided to have an internet connection).

Now, I was really busy back then, the pay was pretty good but the responsibility was a bit hard.
Though I did have my perks: 1. I can listen to music 2. Download 3. watch whatever I wanted while I pause for a break 4. and do whatever I can with an internet connection.

But the one disadvantage that I had was that, I wasn’t able to go out too often because I always had a deadline with the pictures and there were hundreds of ’em.

But, eventually, there came a point when this particular work ended, and that’s when I was on-training at my current work.

Now, whenever I see some of the products that I did at a certain place, I feel kinda..I don’t know, happy? kind of ..it’s hard to explain, but the feeling’s nice.

Just ranting a bit ^^
