What? Where are you?

Friday, July 18th, 2003

Yeah. I’ve been lax. I’ve been photographing seniors all week, and did a
photo shoot for USPCA magazine. Whew! On top of my normal work load and
school, I’ve not had much time for anything.

This weekend we are off to the lake to recharge, so I’ll catch you on the
flip side. Check the photo gallery for fun stuff!

gotta love those upgrades!

Today seems to be one of those software upgrade days. Seems like the
Apache update today was the last straw.

Wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too?

A rather lazy sunday today. I spent the majority of my time working on
school stuff and cleaning up after the party. Only 4 more weeks of school
and I am done for this trimester. We get about a month break and then I’m
back at it with 2 more classes. I am thinking an Entrepeneurial class and
possibly the Trusted Systems class (ugh). I wish UD had more of the IA
curriculum online today as opposed to a few trimesters from now.

Its looking like rain here in McKinney…

I think I’ll finish up some contract work and then go park it on the couch
for a few.

Happy Independence Day!

Yes, I do realize that it is one day early, but somewhere out in the
atlantic it is 12am Jul 4.

I got some film developed from my new camera the other day and boy was I
shocked. It was a full stop (sometimes more) underexposed! Well that
CERTAINLY cant be a problem with the camera can it? Did the lab hose it
up? Not likely. So yesterday I am running around McKinney taking random
pictures of various things while verifying all along that another light
meter was reading things just the same as the internal meter. Very

I think part of the problem was that the previous owner did not put a
battery in the film back which did not help things. But my second roll of
film (shot Astia to really see any problems) seemed to work fine and it is
well exposed where it should be. Very frustrating indeed…

You know, its amazing what a little PHP knowledge can save you money wise.
I found a great system to do my online proofing with. But they wanted to
charge me 10% of gross sales for every order! BS! Looks like my little
hack of PHP Gallery is going
to be the grand ol’ ordering/proofing proggie for a while.

At any rate, we are going to be busy all day tomorrow party hopping, and
then saturday I’ve got the smoker smoking all day. Everything from
Brisket to ribs. MMmmmm….

Ok, time to run away now and do something useful! Later!
