Well, yesterday was Aggie Ring Day, and I finally got my ring. Yes, it says Class of 2002. Yes, I'm old. No, I don't care that I'm old. I'm told that I am the cranky old guy on the street. To quote Jeff, I could often be found yelling “You kids get off my lawn!”.
Anyway, so I have my ring. Should have pictures of the event online in the gallery tonight. I'll update this post when I do.
Oh, also, while I'm sitting out at the Assocation of Former Students (they're the people who hand out rings — I'm not a former student yet) I look over to the east west and see a couple of tanks and APCs in the field. I scuttled over there with the camera too, and got some more really random pictures.
Oh! Another rant! The “official” photographers at Ring Day… I asked one of the workers what kind of cameras they were using (since, well, I am a photo nerd). She replies “Digital”. Hrm. She obviously didn’t understand the question. Looking back it looks as if they were “Kodak DCS3200”:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Kodak/kodak_dc3200.asp cameras. Hooray for using 1 megapixel cameras! I found the head photographer inside using a “Fuji Finepix S1 Pro”:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Fujifilm/fuji_s1.asp to take my picture. I know he’s probably got it set on 1MP mode, but at least my picture was taken with a decent camera. It’s the little things in life I enjoy. 🙂
*UPDATE*: I’ve finally got the pictures posted “here”:http://www.marius.org/gallery/ringday/.
