usb memory device

The past 3 mths or so, i can not make up my mind as to which usb memory device to get.

Requirements:
~Ability to 'plug and play'. Transfer files from university and home. ie. All drivers (if any needed) contained within the unit.
~Capacity must be equal or greater than 256mb.
~Ability to output audio, to kill time on public transport, etc :)

Desires:
~Minimal power-source fuss. ie. Rechargable unit or optimal battery efficiency.
~Cost less than 551AUD.

Would be great:
~If the male usb head is built into the unit.


So far, there are two contenders. Theres the iPod. And theres the Muvo128mb device. Ideally what im after is essentially a hybrid between the two. The capacity/battery system of the iPod, the compactness/connectivity of the Muvo.


Concluding, im sitting on the fence. What do you suggest i do? I need your advice! :)

Remembering Names

What is it that allow us to remember and recall people's name. Perhaps i should be asking, when is someone important enough such that we remember their name?

Saying someones name to their face is like a key to the heart. Reading, speaking and experiencing myself it is always nice to be remembered and to me; recalling someones name is THE confirmation of aquaintance. This small significance obviously means something to me and i assume to alot of people.
This afternoon i had run into a girl who i will not name (yes i do remember her name, but i prefer to keep her anonymous!). I had become aquainted with her recently and to me i thought there was some form of chemistry going on. Anyhow continuing my crytime story :), upon running into her and an oldboy of North Sydney in the year above (Ray), between the two they had forgotten my name.
Yea yea, deep down i know they know me. But argh.... Which leads me to conclude that i place too great a value in remembering the individual. Thinking about it, i can honestly say 95% of the time i can recall whether or not i had met someone before. I can tell that person where it was, what occasion it was, who they were with and most of the time (at least 70-75%) i can tell that person their name, even if it was just a small talk conversation.

To be honest, it did hurt me and my poor ego. Perhaps my mother is right, i am a girl ("you're too sensitive to be a man") and perhaps when people tell me i am gay ("you're too articulate to be a guy",etc), i really am gay...

Signed,
Bitter and sensitive

Levy's Bash

What a night! On September 11 1983, Michael Levenston entered the world around 1pm. 21 years later family and friends were there to celebrate the big manís bday.

Among the North Sydney crowd; Geoff, Danny G, Larsen, Baird, Clint, Sean, Tone, Quek, Bunge, Denno, Fung/Fa.../Joof and yours truly were spotted enjoying the ambience. For the unfortunate who have not been to Levyís; think Castle. Double storey, full masonry with commanding harbour views, Levy celebrated in style with caterers tending to the drinking and eating needs of his guests. Among the familiar faces, it was good to bumb into Marc Gold, Danny Rosenbaum, Kate Rudzen, a handful of Burwood girls, levyís 100 ex-girlfriends, the younger NSBoys as well as the other halves of Den, Quek and Bunge.

Highlights:
~The drastic change of ambience (when power failure occurs at 2030 lasting til the end of the night).
~Seeing the 'Assistant Grand Master' Gregory Henry Levenston of Free Masons Australia in Mafia robes and shoes

Highlight photos are below, the rest can be found by clicking on the flicker image link.

This month's theme

Wallpapers

Everyone loves them! (on their desktop at least). This month i hope to collect and post interesting and decent quality wallpapers. Focus ranges from colour, ambience and of course subject. If you have one you'ld like to add, let me know and i'd be more than happy to post it.

Cufflinks

Taken just last week, these here represent my current collection of cufflinks. I love cufflinks, they add that extra dimension to ones appearance and they also allow a touch of personality to the everyday formal attire. Credit: me :)
