Well, I’ve arrived, commented a few times using a book instead of a computer, and it looks like the wifi may just be giving me a tiny break.
The people at the front were nice and understing
Got things semi-organized and stowable, made the bed, found the kitchen, etc.
It’s now midnight in Japan and with the weird almost sleep I had on the monsterous A380 my body isn’t really sure what time it is but could sleep right now given the chance.
So the A380? From the inside it looks like each wing is actually 3 wings welded together with two engines the size of small Cessnas (though far more massive) as the bridging point mostly due to sitting up and there being a child screaming the majority of the flight. Yay.
Well, I either need to wander a little looking at things and not being lost, or sleep.
01:32: Just got back from doing some night photography, which is interesting as my big lens has vibration reduction which is amazing, but it also starts much more zoomed, so I have be further back to capture it… which decreases available light.
Got a few I liked and learned a bit. Getting better at swapping lenses, though I do wish I purchased a second UV filter so I wouldn’t have to swap that over.
07:33 UTC+9: Woke up about 30 minutes ago. Realized about 10 minutes ago that I wasn’t just temporarily awake. The wireless appears quite stable now which is good. Oddly my phone will not get new email. It can open old email, but I have to actually go to gmail.com to get anything (had to confirm that it is me, oh, security). Doesn’t even check the sean [at dealiemajig] elucidovia.com address.
Working from the laptop right now, which was to make sure it could connect. Frustratingly, I’ve not yet found a grounded outlet I can use, which may be an issue if I want to keep my laptop running. Still have about 4.5 hours of run time, but…
Thunderbird gets email just fine. Whatever. Google now autoswitches to .co.jp. Hmm. Probably would work if I stayed signed into a google account. Of course the entire interface is in Japanese, so that makes changing settings easy. Found it.
Time to get ready I suppose. Yay daylight pictures! I can set the shutter to something faster than 5-40!
