Of work and phones

I just started working at a site that has military contracts and a fair share of classified material floating about, so I wasn't allowed to have a phone with a camera. No problem, I thought, I will just get a different phone.

Yeah. It turns out, they don't make too many phones without cameras anymore. I ended up with a Blackberry 8830. This way I can check my email from work as well, since most internet sites are blocked.

It's not that I'm so addicted to my phone that I can't go without it, but I don't really visit my own office too much, so I really have no way of getting emergency calls in any sort of timely manner unless I have a phone on me.

WASR-10 with K-VAR Desert Sand stock set.

Whoo! To celebrate my new job, I finally got a new stock set for my AK. It needed just a bit of trimming before it fit right, but it wasn't tough to do. Now my crap wood handguards won't smoke and catch fire when I shoot. (I noticed that my wooden hand guards had no heat shield at all when I took them off. Nice.)
