Emotional IQ Test

I read a post today on Emotional Intelligence, and was motivated to take the online test. I am such a sucker for online tests.

Results of the Emotional IQ Test
  Ruler
Your score = 119 Your score


What does your score mean?

Your Emotional IQ is very good - slightly higher than average. This means that, in general, you are able to express your feelings clearly in appropriate situations. You effectively communicate, interact with others and deal with stress. These skills will certainly bring you long-term benefits such as stronger relationships, better health and personal happiness.

You can test your own emotional intelligence here.

It's official - I have a date with my surgeon

I saw my surgeon this week and we finalised the date of my surgery.

I go into hospital on Wednesday April 13th. The procedure will see me in hospital for up to 10 days, so I hope to be home for the ANZAC Day long weekend.

I've been debating whether I take my M200 to the hospital and signup with iBurst, but what if it interferes with the machines that go ping. I may just have to go offline for a while. This is the hardest thing I have to deal with!

To prepare for my visit to the hospital, I have to do the same stuff I did for my minimally invasive endoscopic examination, which is like drinking draino. Since I have been a liquid diet for almost 2 weeks, this shouldn't be too much trouble, but I am still not looking forward to Monday evening.

Impatient TV viewers turn to BitTorrent

Interesting article on ZDNET news - Impatient TV viewers turn to BitTorrent

Some Australians are turning to file-sharing networks for new episodes of their favorite American television shows.

According to a new report, the popularity in Australia of one peer-to-peer application--BitTorrent--is driven in part by local television networks that have adopted a strategy of being slow to air current episodes of popular TV shows.

Flickr Zeirgeist

I found this cool Flickr Blog toy - Flickr Zeitgeist.

It can show random photos from today, or just my photos, or even photos from me, my contacts or mine and my contacts combined. Very cool little addon. I've added it to my nav. Hopefully it wont affect performance too much. It is also inline in this post, but you wont be able to see it in an aggregator. You need to come to my blog to see it
