Digital Camera

Well, I’m finally thinking about getting a digital camera. Not quite sure if I want one, but seriously thinking about it. Could be a fun toy. Saw this one.

I’m back

I’m back from a week in Florida. Good relaxation, no computers, no code, no internet, no server issues, no geeky stuff, just fun in the sun (and occasional rain). But I did do one thing quite geeky… got to ride a Segway. Takes a few minutes to learn to trust it (it’s more powerful at […]
