  1. Six New Portfolio Inductions

    I’ve added some new pictures to my portfolio over the last couple of weeks. This brings the total portfolio size up to 74 (out of 7,958 images) for a representation of 0.9298% of my photos. My goal is to have my portfolio represent about 1% of my …

  2. Not the Greatest Start

    EDay’s isn’t off to the greatest start. It started snowing at 1am today, I ended up vomiting, the Fireworks have been postponed indefinitely (but won’t be happening this weekend for sure), and it’s still snowing and cold. It’s supposed to be spring!

  3. Teymur Update

    I check back in Teymur’s status today and it looks like his loan is now fully funded! Excellent.

    Like I said before, I’ll be keeping track of Teymur’s status.

    There’s also a RSS feed:…

  5. The RIAA Pendulum

    I remember Dad telling me about pendulums in the ski industry a long time ago. I think it had something to do with skiing versus snowboarding and how after many years of increasing snowboarders, skiing was making a comeback: the pendulum effect.

  6. 576 Megapixel Camera

    I’ve always wondered about this, so I’m glad I was finally able to get an answer. Long story short:
    The human eye is equivalent to a 576 megapixel camera and has a nighttime ISO of 800 (~1 during the daytime).

    It’s actually pretty cool how thi…

  7. Southwest Airlines Blows

    I almost always fly United (insert key notes from Rhapsody in Blue now). I flew out on Southwest because it was comped for me and I’m never one to turn down something free (ok, technically it wasn’t free…but it was free-r). I’ve never flown on S…

  8. Shutdown Day

    In just a few seconds, Saturday will begin and Shutdown Day will begin in my time zone. What does that mean? No computer…for the entire day. Yea, I know. Amazing, we’ll see how it goes. Since I won’t be on the computer, there will be:

    no ema…

  9. How Vegas Says Bang

    The fact that I even heard that the Stardust was going to be demolished was, as usual, by shear luck. Bailey and her boyfriend, Shaun, were going to be in Vegas for a few days and we were going to go grab something to eat. She sent me a text messa…
