Title goes here

I might get a cheap laser printer. If anyone in the Toronto/Kingston zone wants to get rid of theirs, let me know. I want to start printing the sample pages for the scrapbook, but it's kind of expensive to do on my ink jet.

Other than that, today I'm doing an image update, and maybe an experience update as well. I find updating has been sped up by about 50% on this new computer — I guess because the pause before viewing images (and scaling them) is so much shorter.

In the news, I'll just quickly recommend two columns (since it seems war is on):

  • Charley Reese – Begins with, and themed after, a 1940s Hemingway quote: “The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.”
  • Pat Buchanan“Searching for the Saddam Bomb”

PS. My landlord changed the locks today but didn't give me a key. Luckily I can still use the back door.


Just messing around… The real work begins next week. Tomorrow I do an image update, and then on Tuesday the plan is to move most of what's left here out to Tweed. Time to see if I can borrow a van.

"BBQ" time

I'm continuing to work on processing my images for the scrapbook, and shortly I'm over to Badur's place for the BME BBQ DVD screening. Until then, I'll kept dredging up good old memories.


Gettin' all teary-eyed here going through a year and a half of photos I have in my digital camera folder… Seriously, it really was hard going through all these, those were amazing times here. It makes me look forward to the undiscovered country…

Three more…

A few more sample pages. I really should do some “real work” too. I don't even have Quark installed on this machine yet — it's already out in Tweed, packed up, so I'll have to wait till next week. Oh, and I anticipate this book being quite long — probably somewhere between 250 and 350 pages is what I'm hoping for. There's lots of text too, not just photos (so make sure to send in any stories that you think you'd like to tell).
