new camera and massive update
It's now been two month's since I've updated photojournal. I'm pretty
sure that's a record. Sorry. What can I say. Busy vacationing or
busy working or busy being lazy. It happens. But here it is.
Pictured above is a new toy I picked up, the Sipix Blink. It's about 2 inches
square, making it really tiny. I missed having my toshiba 640x480 camera so
I searched for a replacement. The Blink seemed perfect. The few pictures I could
find online seemed to have that crappy ccd quality to them, and the whole thing
fits in a fifth pocket. I've used it for the last couple weeks, grabbing about 70
pictures and had hoped to incorporate them with this update. First challenge
was to find a PC that I could install the support software (no support for macintosh, boo!)
since my disk is too full to fit virtual PC. I came to work and got that done, only to get a dialog, "No Photos, Please snap some pictures first." Ugh. I forgot the
camera's big weakness: The camera needs power to retain pictures. Last night the battery
died and with it, several weeks of pictures. *Cry*
Lost photos included the glorious WDA softball team One Time, various bar-capades probably
best left to decay to neutral, and my family vacation in Saugatuck.
