Missed Calls for the President

Ever wondered what happens to missed-calls for the President? I just had to blog about this.

Well, quite I few end up on my voice-mail box or on my phone as SMS-text. It is quite distracting when I am busy; and quite entertaining when I’m in the mood for some fun.

During the presidential election of 2008, it got so bad that I had use a call blocker to block-off repeating callers. Strangest of all, they want to know who I am when I tell them that they’ve got a wrong number. They seem to be pretty convinced that they are indeed calling H. E. the President himself!

On a more positive note, I am continuously updated on the happenings in my voice-mail box; from the political dramas to crisis situations to personal praises and dilemmas!

iTunes cannot sync information with the «iPhone Name» because syncing has been disabled on this computer. Do you want to enable syncing?

When I tried to enable sync, the error message was

Sound Reinforcement for Bounce 2007

_bounce.jpgBounce was held on 22nd of November 2007 in Kuda Bandos. The event DJ Kina and DJ Gavin from Australia. Prior to this finale event they also conducted workshops.

I could here the difference in their samples – they were really good! Another difference that I’m beginning to notice with professional DJs is that the consistency in the levels of their mixing. My guess is that it’s not only in the recorded materials nor is it there metering alone, it’s a bit of everything and most importantly their critical listening ability. Once set, it remains like that.
