New Desktops for March, 2009

I'm jumping the gun by about an hour, but I've posted new Desktops for March, 2009. Get them while you can. Just three this month.

No Shots in February

Just realized something… I've taken no artistic photographs (i.e. non-family/scrapbooking type photos) in the month of February. Then again, how many pictures of snow can you really take in a year? 😛 Busy month. I could have taken shots in the "studio" but never found the time.

Lot of stuff here for an x.x.x release, but here goes: Added support for mt2s and vob files on the PS3. Added French localization. Thanks to Eric Morand for the translations. Fixed ordering of playlists and albums on the PS3. Fixed the display when showing only unplayed podcasts. Fixed an Aperture parsing issue with projects. […]

Even My Blog is ISTP

I wrote about how I'm ISTP (based on a VERY short test) back in 2003, and when I run through Typealizer, it comes back ISTP as well: The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer […]

Safari 4 Beta

The Safari 4 Beta shipped today, and frankly, I think it stinks. Among the many things that I think are wrong with it: No title bar means it's not easy drag windows. You have to be very careful about where you click. The ability, via command-click, to navigate up the hierarchy is gone. Repurposing of […]

You know what would be handy? A website that let you enter in package sizes, weights, and destination and shipping zip codes, and then gave you the rates for FedEx, UPS, and USPS. Does such a site exist? The rates are available - my Pelouze scale (if I had a Windows machine) can calculate the […]


The record for the 2008-2009 Tungsten Blades. Not too shabby, and a great group of guys. Now, onward to the playoffs.

Simple Wikipedia

I didn't even know that "" existed until xkcd told me. What the heck? Is it Wikipedia for morons? The Simple English Wikipedia is for everyone! That includes children and adults who are learning English. So it's for children, adults learning English, and morons. Got it. 😉 In all seriousness, that's kind of cool, particularly […]

Perception is Reality

Most of the time, that's only a small problem. It becomes a big problem when (false) assumptions horrendously color the perception.

For some reason, every time I launch Aperture (latest version), it selects an image from last spring. I dutifully collapse that folder back down, work on other images in other folders (and even other projects), sync to my vault, and yet when I launch Aperture next, it selects and displays that same image, un-collapsing the […]

Photographers as Terrorists

Photographers are Now Terrorists in the U.K.: The laws introduced today allow for the arrest and imprisonment of anyone who takes pictures of police officers that are likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. What is wrong with the people in the U.K. that they'd even let this […]

I don't use Mail, but my wife does… All of the below deals with a POP account I created for her to use with some school project she's doing. Basically, my wife needs all mail sent to and from this account to be routed to a folder. The "to" part is easy and I've already […]

A Photoblog Comment

As posted on Twitter: "you're photos suck.. no offense, you just throw them out there as if there is any content at all and you fail miserably." I responded via email just to say "Your comment sucks. Guess we're even?" I couldn't resist. But that's beside the point… Criticism like this doesn't bother me at […]

Hey, if you've got a moment, do me a favor and stop by the Ratings page at my photoblog, click a few of the "5 Least Rated Images," and rate them by clicking the stars. Thanks.

V Day

{democracy:48} Carey and I don't. We both think it's an over-sensationalized, over-commercialized holiday. We don't think you should need a calendar to remind you to love someone ((And no, I'm not saying that those who do something for VDay do.)) We do things with/for the kiddo, though. That's different, somehow.
