Meet up with Devin & Kuala Lumpur

| January 27, 2008 | 1 Reply

Short as the time spent with Devin was, we still managed to have a fab time night touring Singapore, sneaking in to a closed theatre (name escapes  me…oh..Esplanade?), getting lost in the labyrinth that was the car par and of course, the meal with the erratic/ecclectic playlist of music and belly dancer.

Spirts tracker did play up and crash a few times, and there’s still a few bugs like not uploading pictures to the  ST site. One thing I would like to see is a little icon to show eithher GPS lock and/or tracking. When you open maps, N82 immediately attempts to get GPS lock but for ST, you have to go through some extra steps in choosing a workout before starting the whole geo-tagging. I’m guessing, contrary to its name, the location based tagging may be a bigger hit than the whole sports stats side so most would just want to turn the application on, assuming it’s going to track n tag immediately and realising later due to tracking not being manually set, they’re pictures will not go up on the ST site.

Other things I would like to see is less reliancy on high speed computers to edit descriptions/select what pictures go up to ST.

It was 3am when I got back to my room and was a little too late to go to sleep. I had to charge up all the batteries which took so long considering something was up with the 3 pin plug. So instead of sleep, I had a nice long chat with Christian (Chaslam) over skype via the n800. Reception was remarkably much clearer than when I was in Britain, only ever cutting out when I used the N800’s browser. We’ve planned on atttempting a little podcast today when Christian gets and hopefully I manage to get some sleep.

Oh and of course, I’m now in Kuala Lumpur. What a beautiful city. Architecture is breath taking, especially the Petronas (makes me think of HPotter) Towers and the astonishing park adjacent to it. ( I was going to get a 6am start tomo in order to get fcfs tickets on the petrons bridge but they don’t do Mondays and I’m already gone 4 am Tuesday.)

I spent most of the day since arriving from my extreme rip off taxi driver (according to hotel staff here, the driver made the fares tripple) walking around and taking snaps (apologies when you encounter several huge tracking blobs as opposed to lines?would be nice if ST could somehow recognise a lap and perform automatic layering) of the streets, mall, park in the sun and rain. Oh whilst in the mall, I ended up stuck for hours in a science exhibit where the only exit is the next stage of their petrolleum topic based set up.(Bit like techniquest in UK but everyting geared towards how amazing petrolleum is.

Once this is posted,  I’ll try get some zzz’s.
