Today I edited and answered email. Tomorrow: more of the same. I had an interesting proposal for a book, but when I read the sample chapters I could tell that the authors were going for a much more boring and tedious approach, and that it was the part that I found boring and tedious that they loved and wanted to base the book around. Ixnay on the ookbay.
lwall++ for getting the Apocalypse out. It was a real tough one, though hopefully we're nearing the end of the tough ones. As Ali G would say, "respec'". I met a friend whose baby girl had sat through a lot of Ali G episodes, and thus gone through a phase where she said "respec'" instead of "thanks".
Trying to decide whether to take on a Microsoft topic. And not just a kinda-MS kinda-open source topic, but a fully-fledged EVIL MICROSOFT topic. For a book I'd edit, you see. It might make a lot of money
Have realized the hard way that putting out cameras on tables at a wedding is an expensive way to get hundreds of really bad photos. Disposable cameras suck, and drunk amateurs with disposable cameras produce nigh-maximal suckage. There was one roll, however, obviously taken by someone with an eye for photography: nice composition, well timed, all lit well. If you find yourself at a wedding with such a camera, I have some advice: try to take photos of things that everyone else isn't--namely, the cousins who are getting on really well, the bride as she gets a drink from teh bar, someone mid-laugh. Don't waste your time taking photos of the entrance of the bride and groom--the wedding couple will already have about a hundred of that to choose from.
Must go to sleep: nearly 2am here, and I'll have to be up at 7 with the kids. Night!
