No, not in the US, the customs workers started then the postal service, here, just joined them ...so from bad to worse.

There is a concept in cognitive psychology popularly referred to as 're-framing'. Have you heard of this?

 

Well, to re-frame your current situation:

 

Instead of thinking "oh, I'm disappointed that my DX100 has been delayed"

 

you could instead re-frame the situation by choosing to focus upon possible positive aspects of the situation. Some examples might be:

 

 

- This gives me more time to prepare 64gb of well-organised, high quality music files

 

- I now have more time to find a case to protect my DX100, so I'll be less likely to damage it when it arrives

 

 

..and, if you actually take some time to really think about this, I'm very confident you can think of some more potential positive things.

 

 

In case you're thinking the above is patronising or just theory, I assure you it is neither - I practice the exact same process many times a day in my daily life, and although I do still get annoyed with people from time to time (and they may get annoyed with me! LOL), I am generally a lot more peaceful than I would be if I didn't re-frame the many little obstacles in my daily life.

 

Nothing is 'Right' or 'Wrong', only thinking makes it so.

 

So, if one is conditioned to think dualistically (i.e. in terms of automatically splitting the world into polarised opposites such as 'Right-Wrong', 'Good-Bad' etc.) then it is at least resourceful for one to choose to focus on the positive sides of each polarity, rather than the negative.

Do you want me to ask Ibasso to send you mine?

 

That sounds like a great idea but I am not sure if iBasso will mix things up considering the fact that they are handling 351 + 19 DX100s.

Thanks, and this is what I will do (or at least try). I feel better already, please guys , lets get the thread back on topic and forget about my situation, as Mython said "focus upon possible positive aspects of the situation"

Ug, I am sorry to hear that. That is completely horrid timing.

Keep perspective. It's only a toy when all is said and done and nothing to ruin your day with a foul mood. Have a pint of your favourite brew and look forwards to another race in Sepang this weekend.

Judging by the silence to my question, I'm guessing no-one's yet found a really decent compact case for the DX100?

My case is still stuck at the customs, why do you keep on traumatizing me , Why???wink.gif I would not call it descent, just until I find something better.

I'm sure I saw a post in one of the threads here on Head-Fi, a few weeks ago, that showed a size-comparison of the DX100 with the Nintendo DS etc., but I am struggling to locate that post. Can anyone point me to it? I think it was a 3D schematic, not a photograph.

That is the beginning of denial. Denial is the beginning of delusion.

"I didn't really fell down, I was merely practicing getting up"
"I didn't really get robbed, I was merely donating to somebody in need"
"I wasn't really overweight, I was just storing up for rainny days"
"I really didn't have cancer, I was merely controling population growth"

Sometimes we need to look at things as they really are. It takes courage to look at life when it sucks.

Poor @jamato8, this thread has far drifted from the original "Cases, IMGs & Video pg. Reviews/Impressions :D.

Can't get into it here, as it's off-topic, but I wholeheartedly disagree with you. I'm not referring to denying negatives at all. I'm saying 'positive' and 'negative' don't even exist - they're arbitrary figments of a conditioned chain of cognition.    BUT, since we are all conditioned in such an unfortunate manner, it is, at the very least, more resourceful to choose to focus upon 'positive' aspects of any dualistic perceptions of an encountered situation in life.

 

I fell down, but there is nothing right or wrong about that, so will I cry and scream about it or will I choose to learn from the experience (e.g. next time, I won't run before I've mastered tying my shoelaces)

 

I got robbed, and sure, it was an extremely unpleasant experience, but I can live the rest of my life convincing myself it was 'wrong' and that I 'shouldn't' have been a victim of robbery, OR I can resourcefully acknowledge that my being robbed was neither 'right' or 'wrong', and I neither 'should' nor 'shouldn't' have been robbed - they're just arbitrary judgments people apply to an event, and they don't do a damn thing to reverse my being robbed. I was robbed. Plain and simple. Now, do I choose to apply a judgment to that event which will lead to me feeling angry, sad and resentful, or do I choose to put it down to experience, and move on? Perhaps one day in the future, that unpleasant experience may enable me to help myself avoid something similar, or to support someone else who's experienced something similar and is struggling to handle what happened to them?

 

etc. etc.

 

No denial involved, in fact, very much the opposite of denial. beerchug.gif

 

 

 

 

Now, about this DX100 size comparison picture...anyone?  regular_smile%20.gif
