Johnny Cash - American IV · All the re­view­ers have been hot on John­ny Cash's apparently-still-in-progress set of "American" record­ings, which if a jazz singer did them would be called "standards". So I picked up up #IV in the se­ries at Christ­mas 2002 and it's got its hooks in­to me pret­ty deep ...
 
Center Dot (·) · Uni­code U+00B7 CENTER DOT like so: ·, I was try­ing to fig­ure out how to ren­der the date and tax­on­o­my hi­er­ar­chies, and fid­dling with var­i­ous kinds of lame line-drawing tricks (stretched GIFs and so on) when I re­al­ized that just about ev­ery font in the known uni­verse has this thing and it lines up nice­ly in rows and columns and looks pret­ty good ...
 
Current Camera: Fuji Finepix F401 · I've had a cam­era al­most al­ways since I was a lit­tle kid; my Dad was a fine and pro­lif­ic pho­tog­ra­pher. Got the first digi­cam in 1998, a 640x480 Fu­ji­film, and this F401 in Tokyo in late 2002. I'm not that hap­py with it ...
 
Azalea Preview · This pic­ture is here by way of fore­shad­ow­ing; it's a close-up of the azalea's fo­liage, which looks pret­ty nice year around; lat­er in the spring this will be­come the garden's number-one show­piece, van­ish­ing be­hind a mass of as­tound­ing red bril­liance.

The Last-Minute Demo Glitch · It's 7 AM, I'm sit­ting on my so­fa at home read­ing the news, and one of our guys out on the road IMs me "Can I cal­l? Prob­lem with the demo." The de­mo is an im­por­tant one and it's in 45 min­utes, this is what life is like when you're a tech­nol­o­gy ven­dor ...
 
How to Publish Pictures Here? · I feel naked when with­out a cam­er­a, and frankly don't care if any­one likes the pic­tures in here, be­cause I like tak­ing them and look­ing at them ...
 
Long Layover at LAX · Every pic­ture tells a sto­ry.
 
YVR Geometry · Was killing time in YVR (Vancouver's air­port, reg­u­lar­ly se­lect­ed by trav­el mag­a­zines as the world's best, don't know if I'd go that far but it's OK), get­ting my shoes shined in fac­t, and I no­ticed the grace­ful ge­ome­tries hov­er­ing un­der the ceil­ing ...
