I got back to Leeds on Monday (well, Tuesday technically) and Ive still not really recovered. My sleep pattern took a battering, my brains still swimming from the red wine consumption (dammit, that wine box seemed like such a good idea) and I still haven’t managed to wash the clothes I took. lol. Ooops.
So… where to begin?
First up, apologies to all the people I was supposed to meet and failed. Knocker, I did actually come looking for you mate but it turns out spotting a Wolves flag in a field the size of a small town is no easy feat! Good to see you had a good time though 😉 Mawdsley – what the hell? The last I heard from you was a text saying “yeah, I’ll meet you at Stanton Warriors” !! Neil, Adam and everyone else – yeah, just sorry ;o) Kym – well, I met you so no apologies necessary. Although sorry I was so drunk by the time I found you! lol
To everyone else I knew or met while I was there (and likewise, everyone I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting…) – hope you had a fantastic time!
My “video experiement” basically fell flat on its arse, thanks to the sheer uselessness of the Kyte.tv Producer beta software. OK, I know beta usually means “not quite ready”, but at no point did I think it could mean “absolutely useless, unusable and a complete waste of time”. To anyone who checked my “live” videos out, you’ll see about 5 2-second videos. Considering each one should have been about 2 minutes (minimum), you can see the problem. Thankfully, not being an idiot, I recorded the videos I really wanted and stored them locally, saving streaming only for a few rare moments in good lighting, etc. Good thing too.
And as for the N95. :sigh: What can I say? Its an amazing phone with a fantastic camera, but I realised I was going to have a problem when I’d got through 2 of my 4 batteries in less than a day and a half. And half of one of them was spent trying to upload a set of photos via the Flickr web service (which, incidentally, sat there uploading for 45 minutes then crashed). Cheers Nokia.
But rant aside, Glastonbury was fantastic. Absolutely brilliant, once again. Even more so due to the lack of rain (only 1 day in wellys!). Met some cool people, drunk and danced a lot, and generally loved every minute of it.
I started typing a full review of my week when I got back, but due to the hazy memory I’ve been putting it off for days. I’ll try and get that published tomorrow if I get a few minutes to finish it. But I have now got all my photos uploaded, so I’m halfway there!
And finally, I think my sleep pattern has caught up. No more laying in bed wide awake till 4am. 😀
