Went skiing for the first time in 6 years (or so).

Monday, March 19th, 2007

I went with a group of friends and we had a ton of fun.

Check out what it looked like from the top of the mountain in this panoramic snapshot.

When it comes to your data, don’t trust the cheap cables.

I found out the hard way (see this post’s title). Hopefully I can recover these corrupted partitions. (Working on that now.)

It’s only several years worth of photos (and their backups); that’s all.

Update: Woohoo! Things work again!

Recent photography things

Friday, March 9th, 2007

I went shooting a few pictures around the Boston area in the freezing cold.


Then a few days later, in Chinatown for the Chinese New Year and met up with Guy



(View the whole Chinese New Year set)

Shortly afterward, I bought a new hard drive (1/2-tb), so I have been trying to consolodate (and organize) all my photos on one disk, finally. As I can actually browse through my (now almost complete) collection of photos spanning several years back, I can post pictures like these from my most recent trip to Germany (almost a year ago):


…or from the beaches of Florida (from 2003):

…or from a trip to Acadia in Maine (in 2004):

Also, I recently purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2. Basically, nearly everyone calls it an LX2 for short. This little compact camera shoots raw, has a Leica lens, and can fit in a reasonably sized pocket (with a little bulge). I’ll be great for when I cannot lug my armada of camera equipment (like commuting to and from work, simply hanging out with friends, etc.).

Beagle logo, in SVG

Friday, March 9th, 2007

Hey Kevin, the SVG of the Beagle logo is located at my Primates account. There are different variations of the Beagle graphic (optimized for different sizes), and also the custom Beagle text I designed too.

I should probably toss more SVGs of logos I’ve done for work in that directory, sometime.
