I was really upset at first that I wouldn't be at it this year for Blink 182 until I read the rest of the line up.

Also really want a "Woke" Men in Repeal Jumpers jumper

Saw Spamalot last night in grand canal, won tickets in one of those survey draws from Bord Gais (yes people actually win those).

It was good fun, all the main scenes from The Holy Grail with added witty musical numbers.

Enjoyed it more than I thought I would tbh. Dinner and drinks in the VIP bar too which is always good.

Got the weirdest email today, I thought it was a scam at first, but I looked into it and found the person on LinkedIn, and loads about the company online, so fairly sure it was legit. Fucking weird either way.

It was a company called iSoftStone, (https://issworld.isoftstone.com/) and they're a "crowdsourcing specialist" doing work for a software company working on facial recognition technology.

According to the mail, they wanted me to curate and upload photos from my phone; the collection had to contain as many images as possible (like hundreds) of the same four people in as many poses, angles and environments as possible. It's essential that they be date and time stamped across the past couple of years.

In exchange for these I would be paid $80 via paypal.

Not convinced it wasn't a scam of some sort, but if it wasn't...sinister as fuck, no?

Clearly not doing it like. Deleted immediately.

Just had a look at their website. Vague as fuck too.

And the job search function seems like bollix. returns 0 hits.

Like it's just so weird. I feel like you would actually get the 80 quid, but that's more scary than it being a simple/elaborate scam to clean you out.

Imagine sending hundreds of photos of yourself and three other people off into the vortex, not knowing where they would end up or what they would be used for.

2 polls over the last few days showing a large majority of support for Repeal. I'm surprised and impressed by the Irish public.
