Now for something Really Stupid

This link is to a Google cache of this text-log of some stupid IRC chats ... they will make you laugh if your are a computer nerd though.

Nikon and Canon

I have recently gotten into a mild debate with my boss at work regarding the merits of Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras.
In particular, the Nikon D70 and the Canon Digital Rebel.  I found a good comparison  but it does have some technical errors regarding Nikon (overstating it's capabilities.)

Rock Face I

These rocks look like a face!

More Photos than Views

Originally uploaded by digital2noise.
With the upload of this, my 1274th Flickr image, I now have more images than I have photostream views.

This has not happened since early just after I opened my account.

This is really the first time I have rapidly produced gigabytes of digital (non-software / non-database) content that anyone can enjoy. I am certainly having a good time creating, cataloging, posting and discussing it!

What a wonderful hobby. I wish I had purchased a Nikon SLR when I was 10 years old.

The Sky Was Blue

So very blue. I shot this out of the car window while turning around.

The hike we were looking for was closed, so I took this picture instead.

So blue!

New Photographs

Originally uploaded by digital2noise.
I'm working to get the hundreds of new images uploaded to Flickr. It is giving me fits ... the uploader seems to only work well between 1am and 5am so I've been doing most of my uploading after I get home from work late at night.

I'm trying hard to get them all posted, but this one was uploaded today and I rather like it. The composition could be better, and I think it looks better as a smaller image -- so it got posted to my blog to entice you to review the other pictures in that set!

Waterfalls, Light and Flickr'ing

Originally uploaded by digital2noise.
I started posting waterfalls from TN this morning, hundreds more pictures still to be uploaded, but Flickr is giving me a lot of trouble doing bulk uploads.

I'm pretty annoyed because I need to get 5G uploaded in 3-2006 and 4-2006 just to cover the pictures I have on disk now ... and that means I need reliable bulk upload.

Anyway, please take a look at this image and the rest of the photoset. I really hope you enjoy some of them!

It is raining here again and I am hungry.

In the new Taco Bell commercials they warn you that "All white-meat chicken claim applies only in continental United States."  Does that mean that it might not be all white meat, or that it might not be all chicken?
Do not forget to look at ... it's always good for a laugh or a thought.

Tidal Force

I crash myself against this task
as a wave breaks against a mountain slab
It seems the thousandth night I've crashed
and poured my heart against this rock - a modern Ahab
I cannot falter, I must not fail - I know what is at stake
and that is how I came to this lonely night shore
It is here I labor, here I break
into my goal my heart and soul I pour
