A bad happy?

I just got a call from my dance partner informing me that he might not be able to compete this Sunday. His grandfather is at his death bed and has requested for several family members to his bedside; my partner is one of those summoned.

I am quite ecstatic when I heard that (not the part about his grandpa dying-la!). Probably because practise has not been very good lately. The more we practise, the worse it seems to be. So, it might be a good thing to not compete this time.

Anyway, I've been sick the past couple days and I don't have the strength right now.

Method required

Twas another frustrating practise today. Maybe Joseph is right, we are probably currently at a rut. Our dancing doesn't feel like it's improving. I don't feel like I'm improving; in fact, I feel like the harder I try, the stiffer my dancing becomes. Stubborn and hard headed, that doesn't help. I want it my way! MY WAY!

I know I'm showing that irritating 'sei yong'. I know it. BUT ...

How do you suppress it?

When you are working in a team and is frustrated that something that you are trying over and over and over again is just not happening. How does it show on your face?

When you think you know how to fix it but your team repeatedly returns to the method that was not working. How would you feel?

When it does work the way you explained it but then as the practise goes, it eventually goes back to the drawing board; how do you put on a happy face?

Do I close my eyes and count to 5?
Do I walk away?
Do I just forget it and don't bother trying to fix the problem?

How would you go about it?

Google Sync on Blackberry

If only they were plug and play ...

I've had my blackberry for the past 5 months. The most usage I get out of it is to Berry my aunt, for my bosses to contact me or tell me to get to his floor NOW for a conference call.

Then I discovered the GMail app for blackberry. That was plug-play! There was no problem with the installation at all nor did I have to go through the whole turn-off-device-take-off-the-battery debacle. (Note: There's gotta be a better way for the OS to reset!)

Two days ago, I discovered that Google has a tool to sync GCal to the berry. Oh happy day! Until I installed it. And un-installed it. And installed it. And un-installed it . For the third time, I've installed it again but it's still not working.

Login failed, due to network problems, please check your settings.

Being the berry idiot that I am, I have no clue whatsoever on what settings they might be talking about. Nowhere is it stated on google's site what sort of settings I should be looking for.

If anyone knows how to get this working, please leave me a note. In the meantime, I'd be terrorizing the CS at Maxis again. ;)

One order of this, please

I don't know where I'd be able to place this but this goes into my I WANT list. It's just too cool!
