Snow

Looking out at the deck in the back, it looks like we got 16-18 inches here. What a day. I called in to work expecting the the “stay home” message but instead was told to come in. Well, I had a little trouble getting out of the parking space I was in, once I did, …

Google wave and the future

One thing that using wave made me think about is Google’s new Operating system called Chrome. It is still in the development phase, but we already know the basic idea behind it. The way that Google sees it, most people tend to do most stuff on the internet, so why have stuff on the computer …

Google wave

I got a google wave invite several days ago in my inbox. I let it sit there until my brother called up last night and wanted to mess with it. It’s a very interesting program. At first, I thought it was just another instant messaging program (IM). You can use it like that, but I …

Film and sunk costs

I picked up all of my film when I last went to mom’s place. It’s an impressive amount, close to 200 rolls. They were meant to be used in Yemen but the logistics proved too difficult to be practical. So what am I going to do with it? I still love shooting film, and I …
