Email working

Monday, February 28th, 2005

I have not really mentioned it here yet, but my personal email address is now working again (it’s the one which has my first name before the at sign, and linuxart.com at the end).

In not-so-unrelated news: Woo-hoo Hula. (:

The Hula Logo

(I switched my mailserver to Hula and now my email works again. Thanks, Hula!)

Making the most of cold weather

Friday, February 25th, 2005

Some people make the most of cold weather by taking advantage of the freezing temperatures… then go climbing.

It’s a neat concept illustrated by some nice photos, and it looks like fun.

Meanwhile, we just got another big blanket of snow up here in Massachusetts. Brr.

American Mile Markers

Friday, February 25th, 2005

A guy named Matt Frondorf drove all the way from New York City to San Francisco and took pictures at every mile marker. His results are 3,304 different pictures forming the “Taken on the Road: American Mile Markers” project.

It’s an interesting way to see America, one little photo slice at a time.

Photos: Utah Arches

Thursday, February 24th, 2005

Not too long ago, I visited the big offices in Provo, Utah. While out there, I met up with Ryan and Josh to venture out and take pictures. I mentioned this all before.

I would like to annouce the official arrival of the photos on my website.

Here is just a sampling of the photos you’ll see in the whole set:

Go ahead and view ’em all in the gallery called “Utah Arches

Nice little Linux-powered photo/media device

Thursday, February 24th, 2005

Linuxdevices.com has the scoop on a nice little device called the Giga Vu Pro, a media transfer and storage device. It will handle all of your JPEGs and raw photos, play audio and video, and will let you play DOOM on the go. Most importantly, it has an open SDK to encourage developers to write software for the little thing. It comes in 40 and 60 gig flavors and looks pretty nifty (although it currently has a high price tag).

Update: It looks like Hubert beat me to it.

Canon’s latest camera: The Digital Rebel XT (350D)

Friday, February 18th, 2005

Canon has just announced the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D), the latest version of their Digital Rebel. It looks like it would be a great camera upgrade. DP Review already has a nice review of the camera, complete with tons of specs.

I personally need a wheel on the back (which means I’ll be holding out for the 30D or whatever the 20D++ may be called). Other than that, the 350D is very tempting…
