Tedious repetition [Jun. 15th, 2005|10:19 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
I finally booked my Edinburgh tickets tonight, on that fvcking abomination of a website. I don't remember it being such a pain to use when I booked a similar number of tickets last year. They've added a "My Fringe" section to the site, of course, which contains an on-the-face-of-it useful schedule, which the blurb implies can be used to ease the ticketing process; simply add all the shows you want to see to the schedule and you can then buy the tickets from the schedule. What actually happens is that you first have to add each show to your wishlist, then you have to click on the show in your wishlist to add it to the schedule, select a date to schedule it on, then go back to your wishlist, click on the next show etc for each show. Then, when they are all scheduled - with the schedule helpfully pointing out that any two shows on the same day clash, even if they are hours apart - you proceed to buy them by ticking the clicky box next to each show and selecting the option to buy one ticket for each showby clicking on a show, selecting the number of tickets on the next screen, confirming this to add the ticket request to the shopping basket, clicking on "My Schedule", clicking on the date you want to see the schedule for, clicking on the next show et fvcking cetera. Jebus. They couldn't have designed it any badder if they'd tried.


Then I put all my numbers off my old phone onto my new one. There's possibly a quicker way to do this than the tedious manual labour way I did it, but nobody told me about it if there is. ATTENTION: IAN IAN SYMES, if you read this I accidentally deleted the message with your new number in it, can you send me a message pls.


While I was doing all this, I was watching a baseball match on MLB.TV, which is possibly the greatest thing of all time. Now I'm watching Seinfeld DVDs, which are possibly the second greatest thing of all time.

No. But I'll let it off, because it was 3.00 am here when that was happening so I've managed to block it out.

Early Mets game tomorrow though! Woo!

I transferred all the numbers and photos from my old phone to my new phone by using Bluetooth.

I don't think I could have done this. My old phone has bluetooth, but in a rubbish way which only lets you use it for a headset, and nothing useful.

Geek! My old phone was too old to have bluetooth. OTOH its battery life seems to have been much better than the battery life in the new phone.

I am coming to Edinburgh, and I do fancy the trip to Glasgow but I won't have time - I'm only there for 3 nights and I'm seeing 13 shows during that time.

How was the gig last night?

I did this on Thursday, also by the tedious manual method. I've kept the 3 envelopes I scribbled the numbers down on the back of in case I've mis-read my own writing.
