Frustration (was: threesixtyfive | day 244)

    Newer Older

    Oh oh oh, after our holiday in Croatia I completely forgot to take a SP... twice... so today, I shoot a three-fold SP and call them day 243 through 245. The theme: going to work, at work, and back home again. Three parts of one day.

    Working with software that just doesn't do what it's supposed to do can be frustrating.

    Having one spot where it works and another where it doesn't is more frustrating.

    Not being able to figure out what's the reason the failing bit fails is most frustrating.

      Great Picture :-)
      I am remaking a clip of mine dedicated to hard working programmers and I am looking for new pictures for the remake.
      the clip as it is now appears on youtube under "And So You Code"

      I would very much like to use this picture of yours in the new clip.
      I will of course make sure that full credit is given to every picture owner also with links to the owner's web site.
      Just tell me what I should write under: Name, Location, and URLs.

      Please tell me if it is OK to use your picture (sybrenstuvel/2468506922/) in the clip remake at

      Thank You,

      Thank you, your photo came in real handy, as I didn't have a picture of myself pulling my hair out not being able to make international characters on my new telephone's keyboard!

      Thanks for letting me know. You're free to use my photo, but please do stick to the licensing. This means:

      1) No commercial usage
      2) No changes to the photo, and
      3) Mention my name as the photographer

      It seems that you've forgotten number 3.
