Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer


My main Le Conte 2003 pictures were down for a while yesterday while I replaced them with higher quality copies. All links and thumbnails should be working now. I also have some panoramic Le Conte 2003 pictures and two Quicktime VR panoramas for sunset and sunrise.

Pictures from vaxjo's party should be up sometime next week.

Watched Wet Hot American Summer last night. It was pretty mediocre. I thought a couple of the deleted scenes were funnier than anything in the main movie. Maybe I just don't have enough experience with the summer camp movie genre to fully appreciate it.

monstersocks' reunion is this weekend. I don't think I have much of anything planned yet aside from that.

If Apple finally releases new laptops next week I'll probably be ordering one. I can't know which one until they release them (assuming they ever will.)

Great Big Geek

Proof I'm a great big geek: I think it's cool that my name is on the main MacInTouch site (I sent them a message about the .mac 31 character filename limitation I discovered when posting my Le Conte pictures.)

It's kind of like that time back in maybe '95 when the URL of my Liz Phair page was listed in the monthly BMG music club mailing, but different.

New shoes

Despite their being excessively light gray I like my current shoes. I was thinking about buying a few more pairs and noticed that Amazon was selling shoes now so I looked around. I found shoes just like mine except black and red so I thought I'd get a pair, but it turns out they only have the red/black ones in children's sizes! (Mens 6-7) I don't even remember when I wore size 6 shoes (I remember for a little while my shoe size and age matched, fortunately that stopped when I was 12 or 13.)

CNN: CDC: Most still don't get enough exercise

It doesn't seem like that interesting of an article, just going on about how you should get thirty minutes of moderate activity at least four days a week.

The interesting bit is buried under the "Going Light" header. It mentions that one hour of light activity is equivalent to thirty minutes of moderate activity. Light activities include:

making photocopies, playing video games, coloring, sitting in a whirlpool bath, floating and "purposeless wandering."

So, just play video games for an hour a day, four days a week and you're fine!
